Loud, raucous and not very practical, the Jaguar F-Type remains one of our favorite sports car indulgences. Its beautiful shape and proportions are among the best on the road and deny the aggressive and precise tendencies hidden beneath. 2018 The Jaguar F-Type gives us further reasons to rejoice with a more modern and efficient navigation navigation medium replacing existing technology in the previous model.
You can get the F-Type as a convertible or coupe, with a four-cylinder or supercharged V6 or V8 engine, with a manual or paddle-shifted automatic transmission and a rear-or all-wheel-drive configuration. It was a surprising variation, and matched the appropriate type of car class it had. Drivers looking for maximum excitement just need to consider two 500-plus-horsepower V8s, which are brash, hard and blisteringly fast. V6, available in 340 hp and 380 hp versions, or additional new four cylinders should suit others well.
New security systems are available this year to help you avoid incidents on your commute, plus the new ReRun InControl app, a smartphone app that can download videos from GoPro’s built-in camera and display performance data over the image. This must be a fun toy for her past hero.
Although our favorite version of the F-Type is not cheap, the price is still relatively cheap compared to German and Japanese rivals. This is a valuable sports car every penny.
2018 Jaguar F-type Reviews
For 2018, there is a new four-cylinder powered base model and also the new R-Dynamic and 400 Sport ranks. Other updates include LED headlamps, light seats, updated touch screen media system, self parking system and additional driver assistance features. S designation was stopped.
Although the F-Type four-cylinder or V6 can feel like a cold shower after you taste the V8, we will still choose the V6 to live every day. If the 340-horsepower V6 model feels a bit tense, 380HP or 400 Sport is limited to 400 (400 horsepower) will reach the sweet point between daily sensation and fuel consumption. We will order with automatic transmission (the six-speed manual is not that impressive), all wheel drive for wet and dry handling skills, and Climate 2 package so we can have both ventilated and ventilated seats. That said, V8 is very superlative. If you can afford it, buy it.

2018 Jaguar F-type Reviews
2018 Jaguar F-type Interior
Attractive with high quality materials but has no usable space. Suffering from poor external visibility, outdated infotainment systems and limited cargo capacity. Most rivals are more accommodating, especially for higher passengers.
Ease of use
The layout of the switchgear is clean and minimal, with better three-dial climate control. The volume keys, though, are placed awkwardly behind the shifter. The infotainment system is still very outdated, not too intuitive, compared to its competitors (revised in 2018).
In and out
A low spooky cockpit requires more effort to enter and exit than a regular passenger car. Dash also extends low, sometimes leading to a knee lump depending on the sitting position. The doors are high enough to clear most obstacles, but thickness makes access more difficult in tight parking lots.
The cabin feels right with the average driver. Higher and wider drivers will really limit themselves. Inhabitants of 6 feet or more are likely to run out of nest space, although headroom should not be a problem. Most other sports coupes are more accommodating.
Thick pillar roofs, small rear windows and tilting noses obstruct visibility and spatial flavor when parking. Heavy dependency forces on rearview cameras and parking sensors (optional self parking systems for 2018 offer little relief).
Customized leather interior, punctuated by suede accents, oozes British class. The design is fun and satisfying buttons, switches and buttons, although the plastic steering wheel feels cheap. Not as good as German rivals; We saw some creaking sounds here and there.
