2015 Jaguar F-Type R Coupe: Just Enough Cargo Space
September 12, 2014
One of the issues that the 2015 Jaguar F-Type gets dinged for most is its limited cargo capacity, especially the roadster's 8 cubic-foot space. But the coupe's 11-cubic-foot trunk fits my life just fine, even when I'm hauling more stuff than normal.
I was planning on helping Photo Editor Kurt Niebuhr with his vintage motorcycle, but was a little worried about getting my tools and a Craftsman motorcycle jack down to his place in the Jag. In my head, I was guessing that some of the gear would have to go in the passenger footwell, or worse, on the seat.
As it turns out, my fears were unfounded. Everything fit easily under the hatch and cargo cover without any effort. In fact, they all fit perfectly, wedging up against each other so there wasn't any shifting or rattling.
With any luck though, my colleagues won't read this and will remain hesitant to sign-out my favorite long-termer. This car truly speaks to me.
