2023 Jaguar F-Type Overview

What’s new?

  • Minor changes to the available equipment
  • The first generation of the F-Type came out in 2014.

Jaguar used to be known for making luxurious executive sedans and sporty cars with a sleek look. The 2023 F-Type is the only car left from Jaguar’s long history. The company is getting ready for an electric future and making more SUVs. The Jaguar XK and E-Type were known for their big hoods, short decks, and rear-wheel drive. The sports car has two seats and a convertible or fixed roof.

Jaguar made the F-Type for the 2014 model year and got a big makeover for the 2021 model year. Last year, Jaguar made the car’s supercharged V8 engine standard to bring back customers who had stopped buying the vehicle. This year, Jaguar adds a few more options for equipment, but the F-Type will stay the same until 2023.

A Jaguar F-Type is fun to drive in a straight line, but as the car ages, its mechanical parts may make a scary symphony when the road ahead has curves and bumpy pavement. Long-distance travel is less fun because the ride is uneven and the cabin is noisy, which is a shame because the F-Type coupe has a lot of space for luggage.

What do they like to live with?

We drove a 2019 Jaguar F-Type SVR for about 20,000 miles because it was fun. What we saw in the 2019 F-Type is valid for the most recent models, even though Jaguar has changed the F-Type since then. For example, the once-annoying infotainment system has been fixed and is now annoying.


  • The standard V8 engine with a supercharger is a thrill to drive.
  • The coupe and the convertible have a seductive look and luxurious interior parts.
  • A couple has almost as much space for cargo as some medium-sized cars.


  • The infotainment system is hard to use and has bugs.
  • There is a lot of noise from the tires and the road because the surface is rough.
  • The steering is hard to feel and feels heavy.

The new Jaguar F-Type is not a car where the whole is bigger than the sum of its parts. The F-Type R we tried to drive looked like a great car on paper. However, when under strain, it disintegrates. The F-Type gets annoyed by bumps in the middle of corners and bends that aren’t as flat as we’d expect from a car in this class. Even with all-wheel drive, it can be hard to know when to hit the gas pedal after a turn if you are going fast. It’s good enough, but it’s far from the road.

The first speed-up is good enough. At InvoicePricing’ test track, it took our F-Type R less than 3.6 seconds to go from 0 to 60 mph. Fast but a little slower than some other luxury sports cars. All-wheel drive makes it easy for the F-Type R to put down power.

When you’re driving around town, the story could be better. Even though it has a ridiculous amount of power, the F-Type is smooth and easy to navigate. The mechanism that stops and starts the engine is quiet, and the gears change quickly. The brakes are the main thing we don’t like. You need to learn how to drive before the pedal is a little uneven, which makes it hard to stop smoothly.

TYPE’s Sports seats are standard on the F-Type R. Even though they don’t have padding, they give your back, thighs, and lower back a good amount of flexibility and support. There is enough side support for driving quickly, but not so much that the seats feel too tight. The thin seats don’t feel squishy in hot weather because of the excellent ventilation system.

The F-ride Type is too stiff, even on the softest comfort level. Even when driving on pavement that is solid, it never stops. Also, there is a lot of noise from cars. Also, the V8’s exhaust no longer makes the crackling and popping sounds we used to like. Boo.

The F-inside Type is the same as other cars in its class. The F-Type has enough space for most people to feel comfortable. Finding a relaxed stance behind the wheel is simple. Because the seats and the steering wheel can be adjusted to some degree, on the other hand, taller drivers may find that the heart doesn’t go back.

Most controls are in the right places, including buttons and knobs for climate control. The infotainment system in a Jaguar is sound, but it’s not the best or even one of the best in its class. Even though most of the menus are easy to understand, it took a lot of work to use some radio settings. The shape of the F-sleek Type makes it harder to see. Even though the windscreen is pretty big, the back window is small, and at highway speeds, the active spoiler blocks it.

The F-infotainment Type system works well enough. Some of our worries about slowness and connection have gone away. Simple navigation and setup make the interface a breeze to use. Rarely jerky. Android Auto and Apple CarPlay are both widely used. We’ve occasionally had problems with Android’s phone mirroring feature, but CarPlay has always worked perfectly.

On the other hand, there are several problems with the Meridian sound system. When the top is down, it gets loud enough to hear well, but when the volume is turned up, it lacks deep bass and sounds grainy. The Jag’s technical skills are best shown by its standard lane-keeping assist and blind-spot monitoring, which are especially helpful in a low-slung coupe with blind spots the size of buses.

The area of the F-cargo Type is one of the largest in its class, and when the cargo cover is taken off, it gets even more significant. Even though it’s not very tall, it’s wide and deep enough to fit a few carry-on bags or a lot of grocery bags.

There needs to be more storage in the front. The glove box and door pockets are both small, as is the centre console. There is no good place to put your phone, and the small storage net between the seats is only big enough for a pair of sunglasses. Even though they are shallow, the two cup holders are easy to reach.

With a V8 engine, the Jaguar F-Type R is expected to get a combined 18 mpg. Even though this V8 engine is potent, we got an excellent 20.3 mpg on our 115-mile mixed-driving test. The F-Type with a V6 engine is even better, getting 22 mpg combined.

We were mostly happy with the F-construction and the way the Type fit and looked. Even though the design is a few years old, it is still in good shape. Most of the critical points of contact are comfortable. Our test vehicle had no paint problems, squeaks, or rattles. Even though it’s not as good as the Porsche 911, it’s clear where the money went.

It is also worth a good amount of money. The F-Type comes with many standard features, and the extras cost less than other high-end sports cars from other companies. One of the best things about the F-ownership Type is that it gives you experience and a warranty. The primary and powertrain warranty is much better than average at five years and 60,000 miles. Jaguar also gives you five years or 60,000 miles of routine maintenance and roadside assistance. No one can beat the second one.

When it came out in 2014, the F-Type was one of the cars with the most noise and style. The supercharged V8’s whine and burble were fun to listen to, but this reconditioned car seems to have lost all of its soul. Simply put, the exhaust’s sound could be more lovely. Even though the V8 has a lot of power to get away from red lights quickly, the F-Type isn’t as sharp or exciting as we’d like it to be.

It is still a beautiful car that stands out in parking lots and on the street because of its appearance. The front and back of the F-Type have been redesigned to give it a more modern look while keeping its basic structure.

The standard P450 model is the one we recommend. It doesn’t have as much power as the F-Type R, but it’s still swift, and you can change the car’s look, interior, and comfort to suit your tastes. You can choose between a convertible top and an all-wheel drive.

Jaguar F-TYPE models

There are three trim levels for the 2023 Jaguar F-Type: P450, P450 R-Dynamic, and R. Each car has a two-door coupe or convertible body, a supercharged 5.0-liter V8 engine, and an eight-speed automatic transmission. All-wheel drive is standard on the P450 R-Dynamic and R, but you can choose the rear-wheel industry for the P450. Also, the R is a lot more powerful than the P450 variants.
