Our Opinion - 2023 Jaguar F-Type Review

The 2023 F-type has everything you’d expect from a Jaguar sports car: a powerful engine, a beautiful design, and a lot of driving personality. It used to come with a turbo-four or a supercharged V-6, but now it only comes with a supercharged V-8 with 444 or 575 horsepower. The mid-engine Porsche 718 and Chevy Corvette, which the front-engine F-type competes with, feel more agile than the big, heavy Jag. Also, the inside is getting old, and there is little room for people or things. In either the coupe or the convertible version of this stunning automotive art, you will feel a sense of immense pride whenever you are seen driving it.

In 2022, Jaguar stopped making cars with four- and six-cylinder engines. However, the F-type, which only had a V-8 engine, remained on the market until 2023.


  • V8 engines are strong.
  • The trunk space needs to be improved in coupe models.


  • The inside is old and cramped
  • A hard time seeing out the back
  • Slow-moving touch screen

The F-type is only available with an old supercharged 5.0-liter V-8 engine, which is the opposite of what most sports cars have done by switching to turbocharged four- and six-cylinder engines. It has a powerful R version with 575 horsepower and a less powerful P450 version with 444 horsepower. Both sound great, with lots of pops, crackles, and snaps coming from the exhaust. During our tests, the F-type R did the same thing in 3.5 seconds, while the P450 convertible took precisely 4 seconds to reach 60 mph. Even though it’s fast, a Corvette or Porsche 718, which are similar, is faster. The F-type has excellent handling, great steering, and a comfortable ride. Still, it will respond slower than more extreme sports cars on a racetrack or spirited backroad adventures.

The F-type has a lot of systems to help the driver, but we recommend using the option for automatic blind-spot monitoring. Among the essential safety features are the following:

  • Automatic emergency braking and a warning of a possible front-end collision are standard.
  • As well as the usual lane-departure sign, it has a system that helps you stay in your lane.
  • There are options like blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert.

The 2023 F driver-focused type has an exciting mix of materials in the cockpit, such as stitching, faux-suede accents, and chrome trim. Also, there are other options for headliners, center-console frames, and more gloss-black parts that are more detailed. In addition to the standard six-way power sport seats, there are upgraded 12-way power performance seats that can be covered in leather or suede. The coupe and the convertible have limited space inside for the driver and passenger, and the convertible’s trunk needs to be more significant.

The P450 got 17 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway, while the all-wheel-drive, 575-hp F-type R got 16 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the road. During our rigorous testing, we drove an R coupe at 75 mph on our highway fuel economy route, and it did better than expected by getting 27 mpg. The P450 convertible got 28 mpg, which was also better than expected.

Every F-type comes with a 10.0-inch touchscreen that runs the InControl Touch Pro system from the carmaker. The system comes with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto built-in. There are choices for a Wi-Fi hotspot, a premium surround-sound audio system, and wireless phone charging.

The 575-horsepower V-8 engine in the F-type R is excellent, but the V-8 in the P450 sounds and has as much power. The F-type comes standard with rear-wheel drive, while you can order the P450 with all-wheel drive, and the R comes with it as standard. Our favorite model is the stylish coupe, but the convertible is also a great choice if you like to feel the wind in your hair. Out of all the different colors and interior accessories you can choose, you should make ours British Racing Green with tan leather.
