Which used Jaguar F-Type sports should I buy?
When you buy a new F-Type Convertible, there’s a sizeable enough difference between the price of the standard V6 and the more powerful V6 S to make the former a better buy. That gap closes enough on the used car market to reverse the situation and make the V6 S the one to go for. Not only is it more powerful, but it also comes with desirable extras such as adaptive dampers, switchable sports exhaust and leather seats.
We’d stick with rear-wheel drive and the entry-level trim rather than the more expensive R-Dynamic or Sport. It is, however, worth looking for a model with front parking sensors, because it is difficult to judge where the F-Type’s long bonnet ends.
With the manual gearbox being a little stiff to operate, we’d strongly advise opting for the automatic for the best driving experience. And if you are tempted by a V8, go for one with four-wheel drive.
