For The Jaguar F-type looks stunning, plus most versions are seriously rapid, great to listen to and involving to drive.
Against The entry-level model looks overpriced and is nowhere near as entertaining as more expensive versions, while the boot is small.

There are 3 Jaguar F-type versions available
Target Price team says:
Despite the choice of name – and the classic front-engined, rear-wheel-drive layout – the F-type is a thoroughly modern car with a stiff and lightweight aluminium body. We wouldn’t bother with the entry-level V6 version, because it’s the worst F-type to drive and looks overpriced compared with rivals with similar performance. However, the two more powerful models are definitely worth considering. While the F-type is currently available only as a convertible, a coupe will follow shortly, and more hardcore versions are also planned. Jaguar is also developing a manual gearbox for the F-type, but the only transmission option at the moment is an eight-speed automatic.
