Jaguar is reinventing itself, and we like what we are driving. And though much of the spotlight is on the new entry-level XE compact sedan and the F-Pace foray into the SUV segment, we don’t want to leave out efforts to reinvent existing vehicles. Let’s look at which is the best sedan in the Jaguar lineup.
Jaguar F-Type Overview
The Jaguar F-Type R-Dynamic is one of the most desirable sports cars around. The V6 trim has the sweeter handling balance but if you want the full drama and sense of occasion that the F-Type can deliver, the full-fat V8 is where it’s at. The F-Type comes with a surprising list of powertrain and drivetrain options, with rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive, manual transmission and automatic transmission and V6 and V8 models all being available. However, the F-Type R set-up puts the emphasis strongly on performance.
The F-Type range is kicked off with a 2.0-litre 4 cylinder, with the coupe version costing $5,485 less than the ragtop. If you are prepared to spend another $3,000 (for either body style) you could get yourself a 335 bhp V6, which gives the same 0-60mph time, top speed and economy irrespective of whether it is fitted to the coupe or convertible. The F-Type R is powered by a 5.0-litre V8 producing 542 bhp and 680 Nm of torque. The colossal power allows the Jag to sprint forward from 0-60mph in 3.9 seconds before charging on to a limited top speed of 186mph – figures which put it up against some very serious rivals.
At the very top of the F-Type pile is the SVR model. These have an extra 25 bhp and 20Nm of torque pushing the figures up to 567bhp and 700 Nm. Should you need to get away from the lights in a hurry, you will be able to accelerate from 0-60mph in 3.5 seconds, before topping out at 200mph. Floor the throttle and there’s a deep rumble and a surge of acceleration, and the R squirms as the tyres struggle to put down all that power. It’s an intense experience, and anyone who believes a dual-clutch gearbox is the only choice for sports cars should just try the F-Type’s excellent eight-speed auto.
Jaguar XF Overview
The XF 35t AWD R-Sport with a 3.0-liter supercharged V-6 gasoline engine took only 4.9 seconds to hit 60 mph and did the quarter mile in 13.3 seconds at 104.2 mph. Not surprising, the engine generates 340 hp at 6,500 rpm and 332 lb-ft of torque at 4,500 rpm. The XF is a gorgeous car and a step up from the XE with longer lines and proportions. It also has more distinctive rear tail lights, so it should receive more attention on the road.
The interior is more upscale with textured gray metal and gray wood trim on our 20d that works well with the contemporary look and black headliner. There is a larger trunk, heated back seats, power outlets, and HVAC vents. Our 35t AWD R-Sport tester had a sporty black and red interior with red stitching. Its sticker price of $71,485 was slightly more than the $64,645 base price because it had the Comfort and Convenience Package, Technology Package, head-up display, and a metallic paint job. The volume model rode on 20-inch Pirelli PZeros.
In sum, the XF has grown up and expanded its breadth with a diesel. It continues to make itself useful in all climates with all-wheel drive and has elevated its stature with a more upscale choice of materials.
Both Jaguar XF AWD and Jaguar F-type AWD R-Dynamic offer excellent driving experience.
