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
Every Jaguar F-Type Convertible comes with xenon headlights, single-zone climate control, satellite-navigation, Bluetooth, a DAB radio, part-electric seats and rear parking sensors as standard. That’s a reasonable amount for the money, but there’s a lot on the options list that is worth paying extra for. We’d recommend the performance seats (including full-leather upholstery), dual-zone climate control, heated seats, front parking sensors, the switchable active sports exhaust, premium leather interior and, if you go for the automatic gearbox, the aluminium gearshift paddles.
Engine: 3.0 Supercharged V6
Even this entry-level engine can get the F-Type Convertible from 0-60mph in around five seconds, and it’s significantly cheaper than the V6 S, which is why it’s our favourite. A six-speed manual gearbox or an eight-speed automatic are available, but just make sure you spec the optional switchable sports exhaust if you choose this engine.
