British luxury automobile brand Jaguar has unveiled the new F-Type, both in the convertible and the coupe form. The highlight of the updated Jaguar F-Type is the design that has become sharper than before with subtle changes inside as well. Additionally, Jaguar will be offering new engine options on its sports car which also include a new V8. The pricing for the UK market starts at £54,060 (Rs 50.08 lakh, excluding import duty and taxes). The updated F-Type will primarily compete with the Porsche 911 and can be expected to arrive in India by the end of next year.

The 2021 Jaguar F-Type gets a sharper front profile

Exterior design

The Jaguar F-Type has always been about the design and we personally loved the way it looked. For the latest iteration, Jaguar has made the front look sharper with the new Pixel LED headlights with DRLs that have replaced the previous unit. The new lights have been re-positioned to sit under the hood line, giving the sportcar am overview of a larger car. The front bumper has been reworked too to accommodate the larger grille and also the larger scoops which do add to the aggressive theme. The silhouette of the F-Type has been left unchanged except for the new clam shell bonnet with vents. Also, the sportscar features new 10-spoke 20-inch alloys. The updated rear profile does not look too distinct compared to the present offering as it comes with restyled tail lights from Jaguar I-Pace EV. Further, the number plate angle too has been altered.

Cabin design and features

Jaguar has equipped the cabin of the new F-Type with a new 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster that also features navigation. The central infotainment system too has been upgraded as it now features a 10-inch touchscreen unit. The layout of controls have been updated too that should make the cabin feel more spacious. It also gets the latest JLR InControl Pro infotainment software for central touchscreen unit. The upholstery features windsor leather and satin-finish noble chrome. Jaguar Leaper motifs have been placed in the headrests, with the subtle 'Jaguar Est.1935' markings on the centre console finisher, glovebox release button surround, and seatbelt guides.

Powertrain options

The four engine options in the updated Jaguar F-Type are the 300PS turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine, 380PS supercharged 3.0-litre V6 in the R-Dynamic model and the 575PS supercharged 5-litre V8 for the R models. Jaguar has chucked the 340PS version that was available with a V6. Also, the power output of the V8 that previously made 550PS has been updated to deliver 575PS, that was offered in the SVR. There is also the 450PS 5.0-litre V8 that is offered on the Coupe and Convertible, R-Dyamic and First Edition models. While an option of a manual transmission was on offer previously, the updated F-Type gets an eight-speed automatic as standard with quicker shifts. The base model with 2-litre is offered with a RWD drivetrain while the V6 and the V8 are offered in AWD. The suspension setup has been tweaked with revised adaptive dampers and aluminium castings for the rear. Jaguar has also updated the wheel bearings and now also offers carbon-ceramic brakes on the R models that was previously offered on the SVR. The 450PS  with its all-wheel drive and rear-wheel drive does 0 to 100kmph in  4.4 seconds and has a maximum speed of 285kmph. The all-wheel drive F-Type R's supercharged V8 that makes 575PS and 700Nm claims to do 0-100kmph in 3.5 seconds with an electronically-limited 300kmph. UK, EU and select Overseas markets will get te 300PS four-cylinder, 450PS V8, 575PS V8 while the North American market gets the 300PS four-cylinder, 380PS V6, 575PS V8.
