Engine

7.8/10

“The 2018 Jaguar F-Type has a new base engine, so you can now get this car with a four-cylinder, V6 or V8 engine. All engines are powerful, but the range-topping V8s take power and acceleration to the extreme. The F-Type isn’t just a straight-line speed demon, however; it also handles adeptly and delivers a generally comfortable ride.” – cars.usnews

Engine and Transmission

The Jaguar F-type models come with both V6 and V8 engine configurations of which the Coupe variant is built with the V6 configuration that is more compact, refined and strong. When you accelerated without any lag, the supercharged engine’s throttle valve and boost control give the outburst of power and energy.

Handling and Steering

The 2018 Jaguar F-type comes with an Electric Power Assisted Steering that provides outstanding control over the vehicle and it effectively contributes to saving power and fuel by using it as and when it is needed.
