Expert Review by Maxabout

Jaguar F-Type is a sports car manufactured by British sports car giant, Jaguar Cars and was launched in India on 8th July 2013. It is a 2-seat convertible sports car which was built under the project code 'X152'. It was officially launched at 2012 Paris Motor Show. It was designed by Ian Callum.

Jaguar F-Type has a beautiful and elegant exterior which includes an elongated, slightly leaned towards forward four-sided front grille, two sporty strokes called heart-lines with the first heart-line starts from the blade which divide the shark gill grille openings of the bumper, flows through the headlights, passes above the top fenders and fades into the doors and the second heart-line begins from rear edge of the door, rise above the rear fenders to make a strong haunch and sweeps around in the tail of the car, three layered fully powered convertible top which opens or closes in just 12 seconds featuring Thinsulate to provide thermal and acoustic insulation and comes in Black, Red, Grey and Beige shades and can be operated at speed of up to 30mph, front xenon HID headlights with J-blade LED signature running lights and rear all-LED taillights, rain-sensing windshield wipers, chrome and Satin black outside finishing, a button operated automatic rear spoiler which rises at 60mph and reduces lift by up to 260lbs to give high-speed stability, deployable door handles which are fitted to the door for continued airflow along the car's flanks and extends to the driver's hand when activated by key fob or by pressing the touch sensitive part of the handle in cars equipped with key-less entry, front splitter to reduce lift and to directs air through the brakes for cooling and stylish dual center exit stainless steel exhausts in case of F-Type and F-Type S and quad outboard-mounted exhaust separated by rear venturi in case of V8 S.

Jaguar F-Type has a beautiful and stylish interior with fully comfortable features which includes a grab handle on central console to divide driver and passenger side, different trim materials on either side of an asymmetric dual cockpit, simple and analogue instruments and a 5-inch TFT screen for extra information mounted at the center of speedometer and tachometer, a flat-bottomed, stylish and leather covered three-spoke steering wheel with audio and cruise controls on the front of the spokes and paddle shifters for the transmission on the back of the spokes and can be heated during chilly weathers, windshield pillars, header and sun visors in Jet black Morzine cloth, configurable ambient lighting which can be changed to Phosphor Blue, Pale Blue, White, Coral or Red, V6 models features heat-able bolstered 6-way manual and electrically adjustable seats with Suede cloth trimmed leather for great grip and V8 S features heat-able fully leather 14-way electrically adjustable seats, Automatic Climate Control System dials with LED displays for temperature and automatic Active Center Air Vents which rises automatically when you need extra airflow and retracts when not.

Jaguar F-Type also features Winter Mode in which gear change and throttle response can be adjusted to improve traction in slippery conditions. Its Active Sports Exhaust function enables the driver to turn off and on the valves at will with the help of active exhaust systems and electronically controlled by-pass valves. Its Dynamic Mode helps you to select between engine, steering, gearshift time and suspension settings. It also has an intelligent 8-inch touch screen which controls audio, telephone and navigation. It is also equipped with a standard 380W Meridian Sound System with 10 speakers, AM/FM, CD/DVD player and USB port and an optional 770W Meridian Surround Sound System with 12 speakers and they also features Digital Sound Processing, Trifield System, Dolby Pro Logic Iix, Dynamic Volume Control to compensate for changes in ambient sound and Meridian Cabin Correction (MCC) for smooth, natural and clear sound and to balance reverberation by accurate acoustic analysis and digital filters. Also, the standard Bluetooth connectivity is used for listening and attending calls with the help of vehicle's built-in hands-free telephone system and for audio streaming with the help of smartphones and MP3 players.

Jaguar F-Type has three powerful petrol engines. The 2995cc 3.0L V6 four valves per cylinder supercharged petrol engine has a maximum power of 335 bhp at 6500 rpm and a maximum torque of 450 Nm at 3500-5000 rpm giving the top speed of 259 kmph and reaches 0-100kmph mark in just 5.1 seconds. The same 2995cc 3.0L V6 S four valves per cylinder supercharged petrol engine gives the maximum power of 375 bhp at 6500 rpm and a maximum torque of 460 Nm at 3500-5000 rpm giving the top speed of 275 kmph and reaches 0-100 kmph mark in just 4.8 seconds. The 5000cc 5.0L V8 S four valves per cylinder supercharged petrol engine has a maximum power of 488 bhp at 6500 rpm and a maximum torque of 625 Nm at 2500-5500 rpm giving the top speed of 300 kmph and reaches 0-100 kmph mark in just 4.2 seconds. All these engines are equipped with 8-speed 'Quick-shift' automatic transmission. But in India only two models are available: V6 S and V8 S.

As far as safety of the passengers is concerned, it has a light and strong aluminium body with wide track and great torsional rigidity, an optional radar sensors at sides to alert about any vehicle entering your blind spot, some stability and braking controls such as ABS, Emergency Brake Assist, Electronic Brake-Force Distribution, Traction Control, Dynamic Stability Control and Cornering Brake Control, optional sensors in the rear bumper to alert you of approaching traffic during reversing out of parking spaces, Automatic Speed Limiter, cruise control, roll over protection bars in Satin chrome, remote central locking, perimeter-sensing vehicle immobilizer, two front Airbags, a Tire Pressure Monitoring System and a Tire Repair System and an Intelligent Stop/Start engine shut off function which takes as little as 300 milliseconds to restart. 

Jaguar F-Type has Super Performance Braking system which includes 354mm front and 325mm rear rotors with silver callipers in F-Type, 380mm front and 325mm rear rotors with black callipers in F-Type S and 380mm front and 376mm rear rotors with black callipers in F-Type V8 S. Also, F-Type S and F-Type V8 S can be equipped with optional performance pack which includes red callipers and large 381mm front and 376mm rear rotors. It has double wishbone front and rear suspension with Adaptive Dampers to adjust damping of the suspension and controls vertical body movement and roll and pitch rates by monitoring suspension movement 100 times a second and steering input 500 times a second.

Jaguar F-Type has a length of 4470mm, width of 1923mm and height of 1308mm as its dimensions and has 2622 mm of wheelbase. It has a front track of 1585mm and rear track of 1628mm. Its interior dimensions are headroom of 940mm, legroom of 1092mm, shoulder room of 1435mm and 198 litres of trunk volume. Jaguar F-Type has three variants which are F-Type, F-Type S and F-Type V8 S. It has many beautiful shades which includes Salsa Red, Stratus Grey, Satellite Grey and many more.

Overall, this convertible sports car is a fine blend of performance, style, magnificence, rigidity, speed, safety, class and technology. The only thing that will be the concern for Jaguar motors will be its price that is little steep for Indian market because of its fuel economy.
