What Car? says...
Although Jaguar has a stable full of sensible saloons and SUVs these days, the Jaguar F-Type Convertible proves that the car maker hasn’t forgotten its heritage.
After all, even the F-Type’s name harks back to sports cars such as the achingly beautiful E-Type of the 1960s. That, too, was available as a solid-roofed coupé or a drop-top roadster, did without back seats and placed emphasis on performance, style and sound.
So does the Jaguar F-Type Convertible set new standards for roof-down exhilaration? Read on and we’ll tell you exactly how it drives, what it’s like for passengers, how much it’ll cost you to run and how it compares with the best convertibles. We’ll also tell you which engine is our favourite, and why.
There is also a hard-top version available – you can read all about that in our full Jaguar F-Type Coupé review.
