For It offers outstanding performance and handling, a classy interior and a useable boot. It’s even relatively good value for money.

Against The automatic gearbox is sometimes slow to respond, the cabin is cramped and the touch-screen infotainment system is fiddly.

The Jaguar F-type Coupe is sublime to drive and good value next to rivals, such as the Porsche 911. It’s hard to fault if you’re after a high-performance sports car.

Buyer's notes

Target Price team says:

There aren’t many decisions beyond choosing which engine you want. The V6 S version is our pick, because while it’s quite a bit pricier than the entry-level V6 model, it’s significantly quicker and has a lot more standard equipment.

The range-topping R model is much more expensive, but still looks good value when you consider how much performance it offers, and that you get even more standard kit than with the V6 S.

You can add ceramic brakes to S and R models, but while they resist fade better than the standard steel brakes during very hard use, they aren’t worth the extra unless you plan to regularly take your F-type on a track.

If you’re considering whether to buy the F-type Coupe or the Convertible, there’s no contest; the Coupe is cheaper (in all but the R model, which isn’t available in the Convertible), better to drive and much easier to live with.

I had an extended test drive of this car recently and in summary I loved it. First the negatives. It annoys me that for a classy and lets face it…
