There’s no doubt the F-Type holds plenty of appeal. Performance ranges from quick to downright rapid and the V8 versions sound glorious. It’s reasonably comfortable for long distances, although you’ll have to pack light: there’s not a lot of stowage space and the boot isn’t particularly big. Rivals such as the Alpine A110, the Porsche 718 Cayman and Porsche 911 are more enjoyable to drive, so we’d take a look at one of those instead.

The entry-level F-Type is available only with the P300 engine and comes as standard with 18in alloy wheels, automatic LED headlights, auto wipers, front and rear parking sensors, a rear-view camera, climate control, keyless start, six-way electric front seats, an active sports exhaust, a 10.0in touchscreen infotainment system with DAB radio, sat-nav, a Meridian stereo, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, cruise control and automatic emergency braking. If you’re planning to go for the P300, it’s all you really need.

The most popular F-Type engine is the least powerful in the range. Badged P300, it’s a turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder that’s offered only with rear-wheel drive. It’s certainly quick, although there are a number of hot hatches that can out-accelerate it. It also sounds rather dreary, one of the big reasons for upgrading to the P450.
