Expert Review, Pricing Analysis and Buying Guide

The Jaguar F-Type coupe comes with an all-new Inline-4 engine, with an output of 296 hp and 295 lb-ft. This engine comes with an eight-speed transmission and rear-wheel drive. Priced at $59,900, the Base F-Type is available in three trim levels. The F-Type SVR coupe and F-Type R coupe will be covered in different articles. This performance coupe offers an enthralling performance, with precise and engaging handling, and has powerful brakes to match its roaring performance.

2018 Jaguar F-Type coupe white

With an elegant exterior and a polished interior, the F-Type is sure to appeal to all. However, the interior is not the quietest of the lot, and the all-new engine can do with some more refinement. Also, there are compromises in the interior space and cargo space, with more attention towards the driver and not the rest. The F-Type's infotainment is also not the best in this class. With all these flaws and positives, the 2018 Jaguar F-Type goes up against the 2018 Porsche 718 Cayman, the 2018 Audi TT RS, and the 2018 BMW M2 Coupe.


Features
9.0/10

The 2018 Jaguar F-type coupe is available in three trim levels; Base, R-Dynamic, and Sport. Pricing for these trims starts at $59,900, and goes up to $92,500 for the top trim. There is a choice between RWD and AWD, and between a six-speed manual and an eight-speed automatic. On the base trim, there are a few engine options apart from the 296 hp base engine which ask a premium of around $10,000 more for a bump of around 40 hp. The R-Dynamic gets a 3.6L V6 engine as standard. The Sport model is powered by a 3.6L V6 400 hp engine.

Stand-alone interior options include red seatbelts, performance seats, keyless entry, and other things. Exterior options include wheel customization, fixed panoramic sunroof, powered tailgate, fixed rear spoiler, a carbon fiber roof, and other things. Standalone options prices range from $50 to $3,570.

We Recommend

The 2018 Jaguar F-type Coupe is a car that is feature-rich across all trims and body styles. We recommend the 380 Hp trim or the 400 Hp Sport trim thanks to their balance between performance and fuel efficiency as well. The base engine is not underpowered, but a V6 is better. The safety package is a must.

Engine and Performance
9.0/10

“There are better true sports cars than the 2018 Jaguar F-Type, but this one's a real thriller in any guise." -TheCarConnection

2018 Jaguar F-Type Coupe Engine and Transmission

The 2018 Jaguar F-type Coupe uses a turbocharged 2.0L engine with an output of 296 hp @ 5500 rpm and 295 lb-ft torque @ 1500 rpm, coupled to an 8-speed automatic transmission and comes with an RWD configuration. There is one more engine option, a V6 with two different power outputs. One is a 3.6L V6 with a 340 hp @ 6500 rpm and 332 lb-ft @ 3500 rpm. The more powerful 3.6L V6 has an output of 380 hp @ 650 rpm, with a torque output of 339 hp @ 3500 rpm. This engine is standard on the R-Dynamic trim. The 400 Sport gets a 3.6L V6 with an output of 400 hp @ 6500 rpm and a torque output of 339 hp @ 3500 rpm. The V6 engines come with a six-speed manual or an eight-speed automatic gearbox.

2018 Jaguar F-Type coupe engine

The base 2.0L engine is no slowpoke and performs with full power. It is a little unrefined, but the lightweight helps it go faster and accelerate quicker. The V6 engines with their raspy exhaust notes are a delight in every sense, with a supercharger providing better air:fuel ratio and offering brisk acceleration. The six-speed transmission is not the best: it has tall gear ratios and the clutch is not the most friendly, slowing down response timings. The automatic is a delight in every sense and is precise.

The BMW M2 Coupe has the largest engine of the four cars. However, it's the Audi that has the most power and torque output at 400 hp and 354lb-ft. The Porsche and the BMW use a manual gearbox, whereas the other two use an automatic. All four cars use an RWD configuration. The F-Type has the least power output among these four. In terms of pricing, the Audi TT RS is the most expensive as well. Peak torque kicks in the earliest on the BMW.

2018 Jaguar F-Type Coupe Acceleration

The standard F-Type with the 2.0L engine accelerates from 0-60 mph in 5.4 seconds, with the quarter-mile coming in at 14.1 seconds. The top speed of the car is rated at 161 mph. The V6 powered F-Types run from 0-60 mph in a time ranging from 5.2 seconds to 4.8 seconds depending on the output power from 340 hp to 400 hp. Top speed also increases to 172 mph.

The TT RS has the quickest 0-60 mph time of 3.6 seconds, thanks to its powerful engine and aerodynamic body. The M2 comes in second at 4.3 seconds, followed by the Porsche at 4.9 seconds. The Jaguar is the slowest at 5.4 seconds. In the quarter-mile run, the Porsche leads with its 12 seconds time. The M2 comes in second at 12.6 seconds, whereas the TT RS is third at 13.6 seconds. The F-Type is a second slower.

2018 Jaguar F-Type Coupe Handling and Steering

Driving dynamics is one of the strong points of the F-Type. Its handles like a charm, with top stability in corners pushing the confidence to an all-new level of 'go faster. The weight distribution is on point, making this heavy car a simple and nimble one in corners. The standard suspension setup of double wishbones at the front and back is on the stiffer side, which is not ideal around the city as much as it is on the track. The optional adaptive dampers are a must, as they help improve ride quality a lot.

Powerslides, burnouts, drifts.... this car can do everything thanks to its rigid chassis, a strong suspension, and sticky rubber. The steering is not heavy, nor is it too light for a sports car, which makes steering this car an easy task. There's good feedback from the chassis and the tires, with split-second reactions. All F-Type cars come equipped with a brake-based torque vectoring system that helps with a planted feel in the corners.

2018 Jaguar F-Type Braking

The 2018 Jaguar F-type Coupe gets a braking setup of a 14-inch front brake rotor and a 12.8-inch rear brake rotor that helps the car stop from 60-0 mph in a distance of 112 feet. This is excellent stopping power for a car that weighs over 3,300 lbs. Higher trim levels get bigger and more powerful braking systems. The optional carbon-ceramic braking system improves the braking performance even more.

The braking system on the F-Type is smooth, with very little nosedive under emergency braking conditions. The brake pedal is efficient even with the slightest touch and has no lag at all.

Despite being the lightest, the 718 does not have the best braking performance. The largest and smallest front brake rotor is on the M2 and 718 at 15 inches and 13 inches respectively. The same cars get the largest rear brake and the smallest rear brakes as well.

Fuel Economy
7.0/10

The 2018 Jaguar F-Type with the 2.0L engine, 8-speed gearbox, and RWD returns 23 mpg in the city, 30 mpg on the highway, and 26 mpg combined. The V6 with the manual gearbox and RWD has a fuel mileage of 16 mpg in the city, 24 mpg on the highway, and 19 mpg combined. With the 8-speed and RWD, this figure gets up to a healthy 19 mpg in the city, 27 mpg on the highway and 22 mpg combined. The V6 with the AWD and automatic drops it by one mpg in every section. The fuel capacity stands at 18.5 gallons, which gives the base F-Type a range of 425.5 miles in the city and 555 miles on the highway.

Performance cars are not very fuel-efficient, but the F-Type is an exception. It has the most combined mileage at 26 mpg, followed by the Porsche at 24 mpg. The Audi returns 22 mpg, whereas the BMW is the least efficient at 21 mpg. In terms of the range also, the most range is offered by the Jaguar itself, which also benefits due to its large tank. The least range is on the M2, with a small fuel capacity of 13.7 gallons which gives it a range of 246 city miles and 356 highway miles. 

Interior
6.0/10

“Comfortable for two and finished to a level that suits its price tag, the 2018 Jaguar F-Type is a proper sports car inside." -TheCarConnection

2018 Jaguar F-Type Coupe Seating and Comfort

The 2018 Jaguar F-type Coupe's interior is true to its roots, and there's a lot of British styling all around. The interior is laid out well, with neatly arranged controls that are logically placed, with more emphasis on the driver. The leather interior, with well-finished surfaces, adds more appeal to the interior. The materials used are of high quality, but there are a few plastic buttons that feel cheap in this interior and a few panel gaps are visible as well. Jaguar offers a lot of customization on the F-Type, ranging from seat types, trim options, stitching, and color combinations. Also, the interior can be finished in carbon fiber or aluminum.

2018 Jaguar F-Type Coupe interior

The 2018 Jaguar F-type coupe can seat two passengers. These seats get power adjustment, which allows for a comfortable driving position for every type of driver. The seats offer excellent support with good bolstering, but the fit is all too tight. The seat cushioning is on the stiffer sides, making the F-Type an uncomfortable car over long distances. The low seat height and the overall low profile of the car make entry and exit require some extra effort compared to other cars. The wide opening doors help. Also, the styling of the car has caused issues with the visibility as well: a small rear window, thick roof pillars, and a sloping roof limit the visibility from the car.

The most legroom in the front is on the F-Type at 42.8 inches. In the rear row, between the M2 and the TT RS, The BMW's rear is more spacious than the Audi's. Some interior features on the F-Type:

  • Heated power-adjustable steering wheel
  • Push-button ignition
  • Power seats with memory function
  • Ambient Lighting
  • Leather upholstery
  • Sport seats (opt)

2018 Jaguar F-Type Coupe Infotainment System

As standard, every F-Type comes equipped with an 8-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth, navigation system, satellite radio, USB interface, and a Meridian sound system The infotainment system uses Jaguar's Touch Pro infotainment interface. This interface is a big improvement over the previous infotainment in all ways. The layout is simpler, it's easy to use, navigating through the menu is not a hassle, and touch responses are quick without any lag.

2018 Jaguar F-Type Coupe infotainment

The sound quality is good. Navigation and voice controls are quite seamless. There's no Android Auto or Apple CarPlay. Smartphone integration is limited via the app to some basic features. There's also in-car WiFi. Some other infotainment features include:

  • SiriusXM
  • Satellite Radio
  • Auxiliary input
  • AM/FM Stereo
  • DVD Player
  • Radio Data system

2018 Jaguar F-Type Cargo Capacity

The 2018 Jaguar F-type coupe comes with a standard cargo capacity of 11.7 cu-ft. Big suitcases will not fit, and the unusual shape of the loading bay might mean more effort at loading items.

“The seductive 2018 Jaguar F-Type hints at the brand's sports car past without a deluge of retro kitsch.' - TheCarConnection

2018 Jaguar F-Type Coupe Dimension and Design

The 2018 Jaguar F-type coupe is a very stylish performance sports car. The overall styling on the F-Type shows hints of its predecessor, the E-Type, and the XK8. The car's front is aggressive, just like the Jaguar which makes up for Jaguar's logo. The front end is long, with swept-back headlamps and a blacked-out grille with a thick line in the middle. The LEDs inside look stunning, giving the car a modern look.

2018 Jaguar F-Type Coupe front 

Around the side, the hood's length is even more evident and compliments the way the roof merges into the rear. The door handles pop out when needed, and do so gracefully. The wheel arches sit close to the wheels, giving this car a really low seating look. The small rear windows highlight the fenders. At the rear, those sleek mean looking slim taillights get LED treatment and surely do enhance the car's overall sportiness.

2018 Jaguar F-Type Coupe with V6 engine (twin center exhaust)

The exhaust systems are different for different engines: the 2.0L engine gets a single center-mounted exhaust, whereas the V6 engines get a center-mounted twin exhaust system. The bold proportions, the amazing curves, and the arcs all come together to showcase the flowing bodyline of the F-Type. Dimensionally, the F-Type measures 176.5 inches in length, 75.7 inches in width, and has a height of 51.6 inches. The car weighs 3360 lbs, which is not light for a coupe sports car and has a wheelbase of 103.2 inches.

The Cayman is the lightest car in this comparison, weighing in at just 2943 lbs. The BMW is the heaviest. The Audi has the least length, whereas the three cars are similar in their lengths. In terms of width, the F-Type's width is the most,  whereas the Porsche is the most narrow car. The M2 has the most height at 55.5 inches, and the most wheelbase as well at 106 inches. The 718 Cayman's wheelbase is the tightest.

Safety
5.0/10

The 2018 Jaguar F-Type Coupe has not been crash-tested by any agency and hence does not get any safety ratings. However, it comes with a lot of standard safety features and has an array of driver assistance features as standard and optional. The F-Type uses an all-aluminum chassis with glue and flush rivets. It is based on the JLR D6a platform. Some standard safety features include airbags, traction control, stability control, an anti-lock braking system, an electromechanical parking brake, and other features. Some advanced safety features include:

  • Forward collision warning
  • Automatic emergency braking
  • Lane departure warning
  • Active lane control

Competition
6.0/10

2018 Jaguar F-type vs 2018 Porsche 718 Cayman

Both the F-Type and the 718 Cayman carry similar price tags, and have similar power output as well. However, one uses a mid-engine setup, whereas the F-Type's engine is mounted in the front. In terms of performance, the Porsche's engine helps it clear performance runs faster than the Jaguar. The Porsche's lighter body with the mid-engine setup gives it excellent balance in the twisties, making it a great handler with on-point steering. The F-Type is more fuel-efficient than the Porsche, and it offers a much longer range as well.

2018 Porsche 718 Cayman

Between the Porsche and the Jaguar, it is a battle of brands in the interior. The Porsche's interior is polished, with a lot of high-quality material everywhere all done with exceptional fit and finish levels. The Jaguar's interior is quite special too, but it is behind in terms of overall finish levels. The infotainment on both the cars is excellent, but the Porsche's unit looks richer and is better equipped as well. Both the cars have not been safety rated, but pack in very useful advanced safety features. All in all, both the F-Type and the 718 Cayman are perfect in their own way, one is better than the other in a few places and vice versa. However, as an overall package, it's the Cayman that brings more to the table than the Jaguar.

2018 Jaguar F-type vs 2018 Audi TT RS

The 2018 Audi TT RS has a more refined and powerful engine than the Jaguar F-Type. This gives the TT RS a 0-60 mph time of under 4 seconds, which is over a second faster than the F-Type. The RS TT also has a better braking performance. In handling, both the cars come close to each other, but it's important to note that the Audi is not a driver-focused car, which the F-Type is. This gives the F-Type an advantage in driving dynamics. Coming to fuel efficiency, the Jaguar again beats the Audi with its impressive fuel economy and range.

2018 Audi TT RS

The interior on the Audi is better than the Jaguar's. The Audi also benefits with its 4-seater seating, unlike the F-Type's two-seater. The cabin on the Audi is much bigger than the F-Type's, making the ambience more spacious and not very snug. The infotainment on the Jaguar is simple and easy to use. Coming to the design profile, the Jaguar's exterior styling is bold and aggressive unlike the TT RS's styling based on the R8. Both the cars are well-equipped in terms of safety features, but the Audi is just a tad bit more reliable than the F-Type. Though the Audi is priced more than the base F-Type, the Jaguar draws higher maintenance charges than the Audi.

Final Verdict

The 2018 Jaguar F-type coupe packs a charming personality, unique brand value, and an appealing design that sways everyone towards it. The capable engine, with excellent driving dynamics, and a powerful braking system all make the F-Type a truly worthy sports car. The interior has a few drawbacks, but it is still very attractive and graceful in the way it has been done.

The F-Type is a balanced car that has the right mixture of performance and practicality with good fuel efficiency. It can be a daily driver as well if one wants it to be. Though the F-Type is not inexpensive in any form, it's still a better bargain to the rivals.
