2019 Jaguar F-TYPE review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2019 Jaguar F-Type?

The Jaguar F-Type is a luxury sports car that’s offered in coupe and convertible body styles, with a choice of rear- or all-wheel drive. It seats two and is powered by a standard 296-horsepower, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. A supercharged 3.0-liter V-6 rated at 340 or 380 hp and a supercharged V-8 rated at 550 or 575 hp are available. Competitors include the Porsche 911 and Mercedes-AMG GT.

What’s New on the 2019 Jaguar F-Type?

All F-Types now have the InControl Touch Pro multimedia system, which gets minor changes this year. Lane keep assist, emergency braking and a driver-drowsiness monitor are now standard.

What Features in the 2019 Jaguar F-Type Are Most Important?

If you prefer shifting gears yourself, you can still get a manual transmission; a six-speed manual is available with the F-Type’s supercharged V-6 engine, along with an eight-speed automatic transmission (the other engines only team with the automatic). Available all-wheel drive can help extend the driving season for both coupe and convertible versions.

Should I Buy the 2019 Jaguar F-Type?

The F-Type offers good handling, powerful V-8 performance and a comfortable cabin. Rear visibility isn’t great, and neither is cabin storage, but if you’re looking for an entertaining sports car, the F-Type is worth a test drive.

Powerful valiue

Second F Type (accident last one-also V8-current SVR 575HP vs 495 last). Best value of any sports car, except Miata. Look at power, compare to cars costing 50%-100% higher. Wonderful exhaust, although not as growly as first ( monel vs titanium).


Most "Fun to Drive Car" I have ever owned

An absolutely "head turning" beautiful car. This is my second F-Type R. I traded an SL550 in for a 2016 F-Type. The SL was certainly more luxurious but not nearly as much fun to drive. My only real gripe with the 2016 was the cumbersome infotainment system. It did not have voice activation and was slow in response time. The 2019 has a vastly improved unit with Apple Car Play/Android Auto and is very competitive with other manufacturer's units. The seats and interior room are fine for someone 5'10" but I think would be a little cramped for someone much over about 6'2". Only real complaint I have is the lack of storage in the cockpit. They even took out a small compartment between the seats which my 2016 had. (Not sure why) As you could expect the handling and performance from an AWD sports car with 550 HP is amazing. The ride and handling in the base configuration are firm but not too firm. If you select a more performance-oriented setup, which you can do on the fly, the car does become rough but that is to be expected. I think the value of what you get for your money is good but Jaguars in general seem to depreciate more thatnother cars in this price range. Lastly, this is my fourth Jaguar. I have owned a '67 XKE, a 2001 XKR, a 2016 F-Type R and this 2019 F-Type R. The '67 truly had some reliability issues. The old question, "Why do the British drink warm beer?" "Because their refrigerators are made by Lucas" was appropriate but the only problem I had with my last three was a fuel pump failure in the 2001 after about 5 years. Otherwise, they have been problem free. The 5-year 60K "bumper to bumper" warranty and 5 years free maintenance shows Jaguars confidence in their product and my experience says that is so. I truly love this car and with a set of winter tires the AWD makes this a year-round car.


Jaguar F-type

I wanted a smaller well designed performance coupe and that's exactly what I got. The only wish would be a little more space to place things I commonly carry. The car has almost no carrying niches other than two cup holders.
