The F-Type looks dramatic enough to be a worthy modern incarnation of the show-stopping Jaguar E-Type. The short tail and slim rear lights hint at its predecessor, but at the same time its lines are finely detailed and completely modern.

The car also looks perfectly in proportion from almost any angle. Desirability is almost as important as performance and handling in this class, and the F-Type has both in abundance. The soft-top is particularly elegant: its tight lines work perfectly with the body design, and it folds down electrically in just 12 seconds.

The entry F-Type trim (now discontinued) featured 18-inch alloy wheels as standard, while R-Dynamic trim included larger 19-inch wheels. Now, every version of the new F-Type gets 20-inch alloys of differing design, LED headlights and tail-lights, an electrically-adjustable steering column with a leather-trimmed wheel, six-way electric front seats finished in leather and suede and adaptive cruise control.

The aggressive 575 R has upgraded Pixel LED headlights and a bespoke bodykit, which includes gloss-black detailing on the side sills, front splitter and grille surrounds, while the beefier brakes are finished with red calipers. Inside, the steering wheel gains R branding, there’s so-called ‘Premium’ ambient lighting, and the seats are adjustable in 12 directions and now finished in Ebony Windsor leather.

Sat-nav, stereo and infotainment

Sat-nav and Bluetooth connectivity are standard on all models, and the revised ten-inch touchscreen system in the F-Type is far better than previous Jaguar efforts – although it’s still not up to BMW and Audi standards of usability.

There’s an all-new 12.3-inch main instrument display with switchable designs, which allows you to choose between a big central rev counter for track work, or more traditional twin dials for road use.

Jaguar has included a Meridian sound system as standard across all models, although there is a £1,000 option to upgrade to a more powerful unit. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are included at no extra cost.
