Our overall rating:
Even though it’s no longer the new kid on the block, the Jaguar F-Type Coupé is still a stunner.
We suspect that for some people the mere sight of it will be temptation enough, but is the dynamic package underneath that striking bodywork good enough to justify making a purchase?
There are certainly plenty of engine options, ranging from a 296bhp 2.0-litre four-cylinder right up to a 5.0-litre supercharged V8 with – wait for it – 567bhp.
Most F-Types have rear-wheel drive, although four-wheel drive is optional on the fastest V6 model and standard on the V8s.
This vast range of powerplants and its resulting pricing strategy means the F-Type Coupé has a wide range of rivals: everything from the Porsche 718 Cayman and Audi TT RS to the Porsche 911 Coupé at the other. In fact, the F-Type SVR encroaches into territory occupied by the McLaren 540C.
So, with such exultant competition, you need to know how the F-Type Coupé matches up, as well as how much it’ll cost to own, what’s it like to drive, and which version is best. Read on and we’ll tell you all the facts, and don't forget to check out our F-Type Convertible review if you like the sound of a drop-top instead.
