    Expert Rating

    4.9 (Excellent)
    16 City / 24 Highway

    Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

    You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

    5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

    4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

    3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

    2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

    1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

    2016 Jaguar F-TYPE OVERVIEW

    Jaguar's thrilling two-seater, the F-Type combines true sports car performance with an exotic body and intriguing interior design. Once you sample its track-worthy moves and sheer presence, the F-Type may seem more expensive than it really is.

    What's New for 2016

    All-wheel drive and a manual transmission are available on the F-Type for the first time, and an electric power steering system replaces the former hydraulic unit.

    Choosing Your Jaguar F-Type

    Available as a two-passenger coupe or convertible, the F-Type starts out with a supercharged 3-liter V6 that delivers 340 horsepower to the rear wheels. A six-speed manual transmission is now standard, and the carryover eight-speed automatic becomes a $1,300 option. The next step up is a 380-horsepower version of the V6, which can be paired with all-wheel drive on automatic-equipped models. For maximum performance, Jaguar offers a supercharged 5-liter V8 that achieves 550 horsepower. All-wheel drive and the automatic transmission come standard with the V8. So equipped, the F-Type goes from zero to 60 mph in a scant 3.9 seconds.

    Plenty of standard features come along for the ride, including a navigation system, power-folding mirrors, automatic wipers, driver memory, and a 12-speaker Meridian sound system with HD and satellite radio. The sport seats are clad in faux suede mixed with leather, and you can opt for an extended all-leather interior or one finished only in the sueded material. Convertibles carry a power soft top, while coupes get a fixed glass roof panel.

    Both the coupe and convertible are available in three trim levels:


    Carries the 340-horsepower V6, 18-inch alloy wheels, and an active sport exhaust system (optional with automatic).


    Gets the 380-horsepower version of the V6, 19-inch whels and an adaptive suspension system. Other performance upgrades include larger front brakes, a limited-slip differential and selectable driving modes. The interior receives a flat-bottom heated steering wheel and multicolor ambient lighting.


    Maxes out on performance with the V8 engine, larger rear brakes (with red-painted calipers all around), an electronic active differential with torque vectoring, quad exhausts and 20-inch wheels. The extended leather interior features heated seats, a heated steering wheel, dual-zone automatic climate control and metal pedal trim. Outside are auto-dimming mirrors and rear parking sensors. Coupes get a power liftgate, while the convertible has a wind deflector.

    The Base and S can get most of R's non-performance upgrades in the Premium + Vision Pak ($3,900), which also adds adaptive headlamps with automatic high beams, front parking sensors, a rearview camera, and blind spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic detection. These features can be added to the R in what's known simply as the Vision Pak for $2,100.

    Individual options include a heated windshield and carbon-fiber roof for coupes. The S and R are eligible for carbon-ceramic brakes paired 20-inch forged alloy wheels.

    CarsDirect Tip

    Selecting the convertible body style adds only about $3,000 to each trim level, which we consider a bargain in a car like this. If you're the road-tripping type, we recommend sticking with the base model, as the larger tires on the S and R can make the ride too firm fro the long haul.
