The interior layout, fit and finish
Jaguar offers the F-Type with decent sports seats as standard, including six-way electric adjustment.
We’d consider upgrading to the 12-way memory front seats that are standard on First Edition and R models, or an option on lesser versions. These are more comfortable and supportive, although you’ll have to pay extra for seat heating on all models.
The dashboard’s design is uncluttered; most of the heating and ventilation functions are controlled via three simple dials, with central air vents that rise out of the top of the dashboard only when required.
Material quality is decent for the most part, with cheaper plastic mostly found lower down the dashboard and in out-of-the-way locations. However, while the overall level of quality is acceptable on the cheaper models (if not as good as in a Porsche), it’s distinctly out of place on the range-topping R, which is nearly twice the price.
