The Jaguar F-Type Convertible makes a great noise and the more expensive versions offer exhilarating pace, but its chief rivals are better sports carsget the best price
Order your 300 or 340 F-Type in R-Dynamic and you add a switchable sports exhaust, gloss black design pack, 19in wheels, LED headlights and aluminium trim inside. Opt for the 380 and the wheels are upped to 20in, there’s a limited slip differential, bigger brakes and the option of four-wheel drive.,
This entry-level 2.0-litre is the best choice for business users. Benefit-in-kind (BIK) payments will be much lower than the bigger engines, although it’s brisk rather than fast - there are quicker hot hatches out there. On the road, it doesn’t feel as flexible as the 3.0 340 and the anodyne exhaust noise disappoints. If you are a private buyer, we’d recommend upgrading to the V6. An automatic gearbox with rear-wheel drive is the only drivetrain available.
