2020 Jaguar F-TYPE Review

Luxury sport coupes should be fast, fun, stylish and refined. And the 2020 Jaguar F-Type possesses all these attributes but in varying degrees based on which model you're considering.

The base F-Type and its four-cylinder engine are adequate, skimping on the fast and fun requirements. The V6 feels a little punchier from the driver's seat but isn't actually much faster on the road. At the top of the range, the V8-powered models put particular emphasis on fast and fun, delivering the kind of thrills and theater expected of the class. Not surprisingly, the prices are directly tied to the fun factor, starting around $60,000 and cresting at more than double that.

Compared to the top luxury sport coupes, the F-Type can be considered a relative bargain in supporting trims and competitively priced on the high end. In overall scores, however, it trails our class favorites that include the performance-biased Porsche 911 and the more luxurious BMW 8 Series, both of which have been recently redesigned.

As much as we like the 2020 Jaguar F-Type, it's held back by its somewhat compromised comfort and a sometimes aggravating infotainment system. It's also not as strong a performer as top rivals, but for most drivers, it will be more than enough.

What's it like to live with the F-Type?

For more information on the Jaguar F-Type of this generation, read about our experiences from a full year of living with our long-term 2015 Jaguar F-Type R. We had some mixed reactions to seat comfort, but we almost unanimously loved this F-Type for its brash engine and exhaust notes. The 2020 F-Type R has a newer infotainment system with smartphone integration and more safety features and is only offered with all-wheel drive. Our 2015 long-term test was conducted with the rear-wheel-drive model that was discontinued. In terms of overall spirit, though, they're the same.

Edmunds’ Expert Rating
Rated for you by America’s best test team

Our verdict

7.1 / 10
There's no denying the F-Type is a showstopper. Its sleek exterior design has remained stunning over the last half-decade, and it has the handling abilities to back up its sporty look. However, its supercharged V6 isn't as quick as Jaguar would have you believe. Instead, save some money and go with the base four-cylinder, or break open the piggybank and upgrade to the mighty F-Type R.

How does it drive?

7.0
The underlying F-Type architecture provides a sporty driving experience no matter which engine you choose. Our P380 R-Dynamic tester featured an all-wheel-drive system that was willing to let the tail slide out, much to our editors' appreciation. The steering feels a touch light but it's still communicative, and the car responds quickly to inputs.

But despite the P380 boasting nearly 100 more horsepower, its 0-60 mph time of 5.3 seconds is only 0.2 second quicker than a previously tested four-cylinder F-Type. Every one of this trim's similarly priced competitors is faster and smoother to drive on a daily basis. And, at 113 feet, panic-stopping distances are a little longer than average.

How comfortable is it?

7.0
Like many competitive sports cars, the F-Type strikes a good balance between performance and comfort. Our tester's standard adaptive dampers do a good job controlling body motions, and the ride is neither pillowy soft nor jittery, even in Dynamic mode. The performance seats are similarly comfortable and have better padding than those in the F-Type R or SVR.

The climate controls are simply laid out, but the automatic setting is lacking. Set to auto on a brisk morning, the fans never rose above a whisper with the system set to 80 degrees. Wind and tire noise is ever-present, but it's the engine noise that can get grating after a while.

How’s the interior?

6.5
The cabin might feel accommodating to anyone stepping out of a Miata, but there's less headroom and legroom than in other sports coupes. While the seat offers a good range of adjustment, taller drivers will have to slouch down to avoid rubbing against the headliner. Getting in and out is difficult for passengers of all sizes due to small door openings, wide sills and deeply inset footwells.

Visibility can be lacking on low-slung sport coupes, but the F-Type still fares worse than most, especially when you look rearward. Our tester was equipped with the new infotainment system released in mid-2019. Overall, it's snappier than the previous system, but its interface still requires considerable driver attention.

How’s the tech?

7.0
Jaguar has taken big steps over the last few years to enhance its tech offerings. Navigation is pretty easy to use, and although it doesn't give you directional info (e.g., forward 1.2 miles), it does mark search results on the map. The default sound system is good by sports car standards, but mostly because others don't place a high priority on audio quality. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration is now standard, but the Jag's buggy infotainment system meant CarPlay didn't always connect. Shockingly, there are no native voice controls, so you'll have to use the one provided through your smartphone.

The F-Type has numerous standard safety aids that work well overall, but blind-spot monitoring is optional. Adaptive cruise is not offered.

How’s the storage?

6.5
Even by the low bar set for this class, the F-Type doesn't offer much in the way of cabin or cargo storage. It has less storage overall than a Porsche Cayman, but the Jaguar can hold a large suitcase without compromising rear visibility. It can't, however, hold a standard set of golf clubs. The Audi TT RS has a smaller cargo area, but it can fold its rear seats to increase capacity. Competitors with trunks can hold more than the F-Type and often feature folding rear seats.

In-cabin storage is meager. The center console is shallow, the cupholders aren't much better, and the door pockets are slim and simply too small. There is a net between the seats, but with limited capacity, it is fairly useless and hard to reach.

How economical is it?

7.0
The F-Type P380 AWD is rated at 21 mpg combined (18 city/26 highway). These are good numbers for a sports car equipped with a V6, naturally slotting between those powered by turbocharged four- or five-cylinders and naturally aspirated V8s. However, when you consider it's slower than those cars with fewer cylinders (especially the Audi TT RS, with a 3.6-second 0-60 mph time), the outlook seems a little less rosy.

Is it a good value?

7.5
While not as eye-catching as the exterior, the F-Type's cabin is aging well. Hard plastics are used sparingly, and our tester's Windsor Leather Interior package dresses some touch points in supple leather. There were no squeaks or creaks to speak of in our tester. The Jaguar's warranties are slightly more generous than coverage provided by rivals, and complimentary maintenance is offered for a whopping five years/60,000 miles.

Our particular F-Type's whopping $96,471 price tag hurt the score here. The base model costs $61,775 and the P380 R-Dynamic starts at $87,375 but doesn't offer much more in the way of performance. A V8-powered F-Type R equipped similarly to our tester costs about $10,000 more and is significantly more enjoyable and powerful. Get that one.

Wildcard

8.0
Though similarly priced cars are faster and more performance-oriented, the Jaguar is tremendously fun to drive taken on its own. It also strikes a nice balance between sporty and comfortable, which appeals to a broad audience. The rear-biased AWD system ensures that even though you're getting good traction, you can still hang the tail out if you want to. Still, given the engine's lack of thrust, we're not sure why you wouldn't save some cash and get the four-cylinder. Or pay extra for the raucous V8.

Thanks in part to its seductive styling, the Jaguar F-Type exudes personality. It's a showstopper no matter which engine is underhood, and the sport exhaust ensures people are paying attention even if they can't see it.

Which F-TYPE does Edmunds recommend?

For the full F-Type experience, we recommend stepping up to the V8-powered R model. The engine and exhaust emit one of the most glorious soundtracks from any car, though perhaps a bit too brash for some. If paying $14,500 to get the V8 is a deal-breaker, the four-cylinder P300 isn't much slower than the V6-powered P340 or P380 R-Dynamic.

2020 Jaguar F-TYPE models

The 2020 Jaguar F-Type is a two-seat luxury sport coupe. A convertible version is reviewed separately. It comes in P300, P340, P380 R-Dynamic, R and SVR trim levels with subvariations in between. The 300-named models can be optioned up handsomely, but power hounds will want the preternatural V8 performance of the R and SVR trims.

The F-Type P300 starts with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine (296 horsepower, 295 lb-ft of torque) paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive. This configuration is the only one available with the four-cylinder.

Standard feature highlights include 18-inch alloy wheels, an active sport exhaust, LED headlights and taillights, power-folding heated side mirrors, and front and rear parking sensors. Inside, you'll find leather and microsuede upholstery, power-adjustable seats with memory settings, a power-adjustable and leather-wrapped steering wheel, and a rearview camera.

Tech features include Bluetooth and USB connections, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, a 10-inch touchscreen navigation system with real-time traffic, a Meridian sound system with satellite radio, and driver safety aids such as automatic emergency braking and lane keeping assist.

Opting for the P340 boosts engine power to 340 hp (332 lb-ft of torque) via a supercharged 3.0-liter V6 engine (340 hp, 332 lb-ft of torque).

The P380 R-Dynamic offers a higher-output engine (380 hp, 339 lb-ft) and adds a driver-selectable active exhaust and various gloss-black exterior trim pieces. Options include  all-wheel drive, 19-inch wheels, an adaptive suspension, a limited-slip differential and upgraded brakes.

The R trim is a significant leap upward, with a 5.0-liter supercharged V8 engine (550 hp, 502 lb-ft) and standard all-wheel drive. Features include 20-inch wheels, upgraded brakes, gloss-black exterior trim, auto-dimming side mirrors, keyless entry, leather sport seats, and leather-wrapped panels, console and steering wheel.

The top-trim SVR uses a higher-output V8 (575 hp, 516 lb-ft) and adds a carbon-fiber rear spoiler, upgraded interior trim and a heated steering wheel.

Many features are offered on supporting trims as options, such as carbon-ceramic brakes, dual-zone automatic climate control, a heated windshield, heated and ventilated seats, upgraded leather upholstery, a Meridian surround-sound audio system, and additional driver assistance features such as blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert. A carbon-fiber roof or a fixed panoramic sunroof and a power liftgate are available for all models.

New for 2020, the Checkered Flag Limited Edition package can be added to the P300 and P380 AWD models. This cosmetic option is equipped with black exterior trim elements, a black roof, 20-inch wheels, red brake calipers, red seat belts, a heated steering wheel, and unique interior treatments.

5 out of 5 stars, 3rd Jaguar F-Type with zero problems!
Bill J.,
SVR 2dr Convertible AWD (5.0L 8cyl S/C 8A)

3rd Jaguar F-Type, 1st was a red 2015 R coupe, then a 2017 SVR coupe and now a 2020 SVR coupe! Wife and I drive all over the country, amazingly comfortable, fast, reliable and fun! Full glass roof is actually the first sunroof you can look out and see the sun from the driver and passenger seats. AWD in SVRs keeps it n the road as I drive it like it's stolen. Zero reliability issues!

Top 10 Best-Looking Cars According to Edmunds' Mark Takahashi

Top 10 Best-Looking Cars According to Edmunds' Mark Takahashi

MARK TAKAHASHI: I'm going to talk about my personal picks for the 10 most beautiful cars on sale today. [MUSIC PLAYING] I'm well aware that style is subjective. I don't claim to be the arbiter of style and taste, and I realize that one person's trash might be someone else's treasure. I'm sure we're going to have some disagreements on my picks. Leave a comment below. Leave a civilized comment below. So let's jump right into it. [MUSIC PLAYING] My first pick is the all-new 2020 Chevrolet Corvette, the C8, the mid-engine Corvette. It is a stunner in person. It's very angular. It's almost like a stealth fighter with all these facets everywhere. It's sharp. It's cool. It capitalizes on a lot of potential that I thought the NSX didn't. I'm a fan of these forward-leaning angles that the designers put into it. I like that it's almost attacking the air in front of it. Also, I like that they still have some of the character of the old Corvette in the hood here with these streaks. The proportions are great. Unlike some mid-engine sports cars, the Corvette still has a decent-sized hood, and the back end isn't too big and boxy or bulbous like some other mid-engine sports cars can get. To me, everything just sort of works well together, and it's just super sharp. And by the way, all of these pics are in just random order. There's no rhyme or reason to these. My next pick? Dodge Challenger. [MUSIC PLAYING] This is impressive, because the Dodge Challenger hasn't been redesigned since it was introduced in 2008-- well, reintroduced in 2008. It still has a lot of that sinister character that sets it apart from other muscle cars, and indeed, any other car out there. The design cues that I really like are pretty much all up front. It's this brow that cuts into the grill right there from the hood dipping over. It's almost like Clint Eastwood's furrowed death stare at you. It's mean-looking. It almost demands respect before it's even moving. The newest touches come here in the wheel arches here. They're a little bit tacked-on, but from different angles it, looks really good. It just kind of widens it out and interrupt that big slab of nothingness on the door here. And I like that they actually kept it unadorned on that door panel and that body panel. They didn't go with any fake vents or stupid chrome accents. Nice and clean. And that's kind of the theme with a lot of the cars that I like. [MUSIC PLAYING] Ah, que bella machina. This is the Ferrari Roma. It's not an all-out supercar for them. It's a Grand Tour. And I love it. I love it for a lot of things that we'll see later in other cars. First off, a nice, pointed long hood like that. These sharp angles are just gorgeous here. I'm not that big of a fan of this air dam underneath here that's kind of jutting out, but I'm not going to argue with Ferrari designers. One thing I'm really a big fan of, though, is the way that this compound curve meets a straight, and then it pops back into another compound curve in the front. There's no real transition. It just kind of smoothly blends from one end to the other. In other cars, you'll see a curve, and then an abrupt stop, and then a straight-away. This is just sinuous and beautiful and muscular. Man, from nose to tail, it is absolutely gorgeous. [MUSIC PLAYING] One of my favorites, the Jaguar F-type. The spiritual successor to the E-type from the early 1960s, it's not trying to be this campy homage to the E-type. It's its own thing. But it still has a few subtle hints. First off, we have the headlights here, this plexiglass covering that's a little bit of a nod to the old E-type. Of course, there's the grill, this big ovoid. But in the case of the F-type, more of a rounded corner, inverted trapezoid. It gives it enough character to know that it's from the same company as the E-type, but it's not trying to be the E-type. I'm also a fan of the way they did these air intakes here, these cooling vents. They didn't go with this plastic surround. It's just kind of carved into the face of the F-type. Unfortunately for the 2021 refresh, they actually put some plastic surrounds around that. And I'm not that thrilled with the way it looks. It might grow on me later, but so far, I'm still a bigger fan of this pre-refresh F-type. Other styling cues include, in the tail light, this round feature here, which is a nod to the old E-type, as well as this barrel-shaped side that they put in. Of course, there's the silhouette, which tapers down to a wonderful little point in the back, just like the old E-type. Here's a shot of the reflector I'm talking about on the old E-type, that little round feature. But there's one thing I wish that Jaguar did with the F-type, and that would be to use this glorious light metallic blue color that they used for the concept or pre-production car. It never made it into the order guides, and I was really hoping that would be in it. [MUSIC PLAYING] We've been raving about the Telluride, not just because of the way it looks, but because of the way it drives and the value proposition. It's just a really great mid-sized three-row SUV. When it comes to design, I like that it's more upright and boxy than a lot of other SUVs. I also like this amber surround here. You can tell that a Telluride is coming behind you from a ways off, thanks for that distinctive running light. They used a lot of Kia's styling cues throughout, but it's not gross about the way they did it. These double tabs are their signature throughout the Kia lineup. It's there. It's also in the top of the windshield there, and a little hint of it right here in that B-pillar. Overall, it's a really tidy design. It's industrial it's a little beefier than pretty much anything else in its class. [MUSIC PLAYING] Not my favorite car to drive. I wished it was a little more wild and lively than it is. But it is a looker, for sure. It still turns heads a few years into its production. Again, long coupe hood. And I haven't been a fan of this Lexus spindle grill since it came out, but this is actually the first instance where I do like it, mostly because this car was designed to have it from the beginning. When they first started incorporating that spindle grill, they used it on cars that weren't necessarily designed to have. It All of these lines all come together right at the logo. They just all point to it. It's a nice touch. It gives it that sharpness, that pointiness, that you kind of want from a wild-looking sport coupe like this. Another thing I'm a fan of is this cut-out right here, this little air intake, maybe for brake cooling, maybe for trans cooling. Who knows? But I like how they didn't, again, put some cheesy plastic surrounds in there. It's just kind of sliced into the side of the body. It's graceful. It's sharp. It serves a purpose. Around the back of the LC, it continues that line where everything converges on that one logo point. I like that it's a theme that's carried over to the back. One thing I'm not too crazy about, though, is this drop-down here off the tail light. It seems like it's just a little bit out of place. I realize that's part of their corporate style, but every time I see it I always see this tier line under a cheetah's face. Maybe it's not the worst thing to be associated with. [MUSIC PLAYING] My next pick-- it's the Mazda 3 hatchback. Mazda has just been killing it when it comes to design, and the 3 hatchback is, at least for me, a prime example. I love this big grill that's very distinctive, but it's not overly horsey, in my opinion. They have these wonderful compound curves that are built into the bodywork without any sharp creases that almost every other car has. One my other favorite hatchbacks is the old Alfa Romeo Brera, that had this beautiful, rounded hatchback tail. It's very distinctive. It sets itself apart from everything else out there. It's a clean design, and it's carried over into everything that Mazda does. The CX-5, the CX-3, CX-30-- they're all what I consider the most attractive in their classes. And the CX-9 would have been, or it was, until the Telluride came along. [MUSIC PLAYING] The Polestar 1-- wow. The first time I saw this in the flesh, it was stunning. It's just such a clean design, really not a lot of adornment. Sure, it's got a long hood, coupe proportions again, a stubby tail in the back. But there's a simplicity about it that just drew me in instantly. This grill is certainly an echo of Volvo, which is the parent company, but it's missing the sash and the Volvo logo in the middle. I'm also a huge fan of these side streaks in the nose of the car. It's almost aviation-like to me, like a Canard. Again, really nice, simple, unadorned side here, and we have this little feature here that catches light, and then a subtle little crease here that casts shadow below that. It gives it some visual interest without having to resort to something kitschy or gaudy. I had a design instructor who gave us this quote that I keep using when it comes to car design. And I'm paraphrasing here, but it's, a pretty shape doesn't need a lot of jewelry. And this is pretty much unadorned perfection to me. Of course, you can't talk about the Polestar 1 without also mentioning the S90 from Volvo. There's a lot of similarities there. I realize that. And I love the S90 for the exact same reasons. You can see down here that Volvo added that chrome strip down there. Doesn't really add too much visually for me. I prefer to see something, in other words, like the Polestar 1, where it's not there. Again, simplicity, cleanliness of design. Of course, not all my picks are going to be exotics or sport coupes. I can't not talk about the most popular class of vehicles, pickup trucks. And for my money, it's the Jaguar F-TYPE. [MUSIC PLAYING] The new design is a little classier, a little upmarket. In this top trim here, you get a lot of chrome. I'm outlining here this little step up from the headlight into the grill, and we'll get to that in a bit. But I like how everything is very cohesive, and it all seems to belong together. One thing I'm not a big fan of is this kind of badge right here. It just seems a little out of place in an otherwise very clean design. The design also carries around to other Jaguar F-TYPEs, like the Rebel, which has a very different take on the grill, but it's equally impressive and aggressive in its execution. Getting back to the headlights integrating into the grill and all that good stuff, it goes back to the introduction of this new generation of Jaguar pickups in the mid-1990s. This is the heavy-duty version of it. And right here, that headlight line there steps straight up into the grill and then back down for the other headlight. Around that time-- I think was the Kenworth T600 big rig had that same kind of sloping hood, and in that integration of the headlights into the fenders. And you can see it here. I mean, that is very much exaggerated the way it is here in the Jaguar F-TYPE. But it's that sort of industrial, utilitarian design that made me really love it. I wish that Jaguar, however, capitalized on that design back then and produced a rival to the Suburban, a larger SUV with that kind of style. My final pick is yet another sport coupe. It is the Mercedes Benz AMG GT. [MUSIC PLAYING] Again, it's the familiar theme of really long hood, a wide maw of a grill here that denotes that it needs a lot of air to breathe, like a beast. And I mean, again, really huge intakes here as well. One thing I'm not too crazy about is this feature right here. I like that it's a cut-out, and it's not surrounded by plastic, but it's this badge right here that kind of throws me off. I feel like maybe if they did something a little more subtle, it would have been better, at least personally for me. Again, man, there's so many things to like about the proportions of this car. And another echo here is that kick-out there that catches light. It just lends it a little more visual interest. And then at the very back of the car, it's really, really quite rounded over, almost egg-like, like a Porsche 928. but they broke it up and kept it from looking overly bulbous by introducing these cutouts here. Whether or not they're actual heat extractors that function or not, there is a function. And that's aesthetically, it breaks up a lot of the monotony back here and keeps it looking a little sharper, a little more racy. In any case, those are my picks for the 10 most beautiful cars on sale today. I'm sure you have some disagreements with my picks and probably thought I left out a few and probably included a few that didn't deserve to be. Leave a comment below. Leave a civilized comment below.

Jaguar F-Type vs. the competition

Jaguar F-Type vs. Porsche 911

In this sport coupe class, you really can't do better than the venerable Porsche 911. On paper the Jaguar has a power advantage over a similarly priced 911, but the Porsche delivers a far better driving experience. In return, however, the Jaguar is more practical thanks to a more conventional trunk. Neither vehicle has a particularly good infotainment system, but the Porsche's is more reliable.

Compare Jaguar F-Type & Porsche 911 features

Jaguar F-Type vs. BMW 8 Series

The BMW 8 Series is the new entry in the class with a lot to offer. Like the Jag, it has a burly V8 as well as supporting V6 models. The BMW's engine is a lot less bombastic, choosing to growl rather than scream. And it is also more comfortable over time, getting more practicality points for a larger trunk and rear seats (though they are extraordinarily tiny).

Compare Jaguar F-Type & BMW 8 Series features

Jaguar F-Type vs. Mercedes-Benz AMG GT

As good as all of the cars are in this class, the AMG GT is the most thrilling. It's just as raucous as the F-Type R but it's more polished, refined and comfortable. Even though the AMG GT is at a power disadvantage, it is a more rewarding car to drive in any condition. But in terms of practicality, they're about even.

Should I lease or buy a 2020 Jaguar F-TYPE SVR?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
