Leasing a Jaguar F-Type
Stylish and sleek sports car will impress
Great fun to drive
If you are wanting a stylish and sleek sports car that is not only great fun to drive but you can use every day, then the Jaguar F-Type is for you. It's not only a hugely attractive car but the suspension delivers great thrills while behind the wheel. It's also a functional car with a decent boot size.
Engines and performance for the Jaguar F-Type
For most drivers, the 2.0 litre four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine will deliver the thrills they are looking for, while those wanting an engine with more character can opt for the incredible supercharged 5.0 litre V6 unit. The V6 has three power outputs up to 395 bhp. The 0-62mph sprint time for the 2.0 litre F-Type is 5.4 seconds though the F-Type SVR with the 5.0 litre engine will do this nearly two seconds quicker at 3.7 seconds. Thankfully, the SVR utilises all-wheel drive to help produce the grip required. Economy for the SVR is 26 mpg, while the standard 2.0 litre engine will return 36 mpg.
Equipment and handling
Available as a coupe or convertible, the Jaguar F-Type delivers a rewarding drive with the vehicle delivering excellent levels of performance. While it may only have two seats, it's still a practical choice. And unlike most of the F-Type's rivals, it's a great car to drive over long distances and it is also comfortable to drive around town. Driver safety has also been improved with autonomous emergency braking, along with lane departure warning. Options include traffic sign recognition and adaptive speed limiter. The cabin has been laid out to deliver driver enjoyment and everything is close to hand. The seats are comfortable and hold the occupants firmly regardless of what the car is doing. The all-wheel drive versions deliver the best grip and performance but the F-Type is certainly a car to enjoy.
Essentially, the Jaguar F-Type is one of the most attractive cars currently on sale and delivers better levels of performance than many of its rivals and with its long-term appeal, it has an army of fans. For those who enjoy driving an excellent sports car, they can really put through its paces and still live with on a daily basis, then the Jaguar F-Type really will tick all of the relevant boxes.
