2021 Jaguar F-Type Performance Review

Scorecard

Performance: 9.1

The 2021 Jaguar F-Type offers impressive performance. It has a range of powerful turbocharged and supercharged engines, each of which delivers brisk acceleration. The F-Type feels balanced through turns, and its steering is finely calibrated. It has a livable ride quality on uneven road surfaces as well.

  • "Acceleration is strong in any version, but it’s hard to imagine forgoing the supercharged V8. It’s one of the best engines around, delivering tremendous power with a spine-tingling growl. Flooring the V8’s throttle at around 60 mph is a peak experience. The V6-powered P380 versions are perfectly capable and have the slight advantage of less weight up front, but the F-Type feels incomplete without that V8." -- Autotrader
  • "Leave everything in its default mode and the result is a surprisingly capable daily driver." -- CNET
  • "This F-Type tackles corners with aggressive precision. Weight balance is excellent, and the car feels eager to move and change direction, especially with the four-cylinder up front. The summer tires add confidence, allowing you to toss this car into corners and rail through them with glee." -- Edmunds (2019)

Engine Options, Horsepower, and Acceleration

  • Base engine: turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder with 296 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque (P300)
  • Available engines:
    • supercharged 3.0-liter V6 with 380 horsepower and 339 pound-feet of torque (P380)
    • supercharged 5.0-liter V8 with 575 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque (F-Type R)
  • Drivetrain: standard rear-wheel drive; available all-wheel drive
  • Transmission: eight-speed automatic

The Jaguar F-Type is available in three basic configurations: P300, P380, and F-Type R. Each of these models can accelerate up to speed assertively, though the F-Type R’s V8 is easily the most entertaining engine of the bunch. It produces a deep exhaust note, and it can shuttle the F-Type from zero to 60 mph in just 3.5 seconds. The four-cylinder P300 and V6 P380 models can hit 60 mph in 5.5 and five seconds, respectively. All three models are paired with a refined eight-speed automatic transmission that provides smooth yet prompt gear changes.

  • "… the four-cylinder F-type is a pleasant surprise, reasonably quick, and roughly 450 pounds lighter than the R." -- Car and Driver
  • "The F-Type's aural dimension, meanwhile, grows in awesomeness from the nice-enough 4-cylinder engine to the mischievous supercharged V6 to the wild supercharged V8. … Standstill-to-60-mph acceleration times run from a respectable 5.4 seconds to a 'next stop, the moon' 3.5 seconds." -- Kelley Blue Book (2020)
  • "There's plenty of passing power in the four-cylinder F-Type and it doesn't feel taxed running up grades either. The 0-60 mph sprint takes 5.5 seconds, which is still pretty quick, but slower than similarly priced rivals such as the Porsche Cayman S. Straight-line speed is not this Jag's best asset." -- Edmunds (2019)

MPG Estimates

The Jaguar F-Type gets about average fuel economy for a luxury sports car.

  • P300, RWD: 23/30 mpg city/highway
  • P380, AWD: 18/26 mpg
  • R, AWD: 16/24 mpg

Handling and Braking

The Jaguar F-Type is a rewarding car to drive. It feels agile and composed around sharp turns. The steering is responsive and well-weighted, and the brakes slow down the Jaguar confidently. The F-Type does have a firm ride quality, but the suspension filters out most larger bumps and dips in the road comfortably.

  • "From the first few corners we attack, it's apparent the changes have reaped huge gains. The steering is sharper than ever and well weighted, and despite the still-wet roads, we hustle the F-Type with nearly as much confidence as we'd have done in the dry. Understeer is well mitigated (an advantage of the chassis changes), and larger doses of throttle out of a tight bend sends the tail wide very controllably, keeping things entertaining. Generally, the F-Type remains neutral and well composed, just as happy to drive quickly as it is to potter around town." -- Automobile Magazine
  • "On winding roads, the F-Type is less involving than Porsche’s best (but Porsche’s best is the absolute best). However, the Jag is without question a world-class sports machine with stunning ability and high-speed stability. In normal circumstances, the AWD system favors the rear wheels for a sporty feel. On a twisting road, slippery surfaces or a racetrack, the system can send 50 percent of the torque to the front wheels for optimum grip and traction." -- Autotrader
  • "In suburban life, the 2021 F-Type is impressively pliant. The car's standard adaptive suspension has been further refined, and it doesn't take long for me to notice just how smooth the F-Type feels as I worm my way through traffic. Despite the 20-inch rollers and thin-enough Pirelli P-Zero summer tires (265/35 front, 305/30 rear), most road annoyances disappear in the dampers, but the inherent stiffness in this coupe's small body means I never forget what car I'm actually in." -- CNET
