Fuel economy is unlikely to be a big concern for those buyers lucky enough to be considering a Jaguar F-Type. Nonetheless, a stop/start system is standard on every model, and this helps to keep CO2 emissions to 214g/km for the 2.0-litre, four-cylinder P300 model, with a claimed 30.1mpg for the coupe also possible.

The rear-wheel-drive P450 V8 model produces a CO2 figure of 237g/km, with maximum fuel economy (under WLTP testing) at 27.2mpg. The AWD version is not quite as efficient, producing 242g/km and covering 26.7mpg. The range-topping R, costing almost £20k more than the P450, manages a respectable 27.0mpg, with a CO2 output of 239g/km.

Maintenance costs are pricey, but not out of the ordinary when compared to the F-Type's rivals. You can sign up to flexible service plans which help to spread the cost of scheduled maintenance.

Insurance groups

Insurance premiums for the F-Type are going to hit you hard in the pocket whichever way you look at it, so the question is how they compare to rivals.

The P300 Coupe sits in group 42, while the cabriolet version moves up to group 45. The Porsche Cayman is also in group 42, while the Porsche Boxster is positioned slightly higher than than the soft-top P300, at group 48. The V8-engined F-Type 75 R coupe is in insurance group 50.

Depreciation

Jaguar cars traditionally suffer from heavy depreciation, but the F-Type has shown itself to be a relatively strong performer on the used market. After a typical three-year/36,000-mile ownership period, the coupe model is predicted to be worth around 51 per cent of its original value, while the convertible lags behind a little on 47 per cent.
