MPG, running costs & CO2 Rating

2.0 out of 5

With any luck you’ll be having too much fun in your Jaguar F-Type to spend time worrying about fuel economy. It’s always best to bear the F-Type’s performance potential in mind when you consider its economy then the quoted figures don’t look quite so bad – particularly those for the 2.0-litre model.

If you’re hoping to run a Jaguar F-Type as a company car, it’s worth noting that all models fall into the maximum 37% Benefit-in-Kind (BiK) company-car tax rating.

Not even the 2.0-litre engines manage above 30mpg, which is a little low considering similarly powerful hot hatchbacks tend to manage around 35mpg even with heavy four-wheel-drive systems. In terms of economy, the V8 won’t cost an awful lot more to run, with both 444bhp and 567bhp versions returning around 26mpg. You could even argue that the power the supercharged P575 model produces makes its fuel consumption seem somewhat acceptable.

All F-Types attract the standard rate of road tax a year, plus an additional surcharge the first five times you renew your tax – this is applicable to any car priced at £40,000 or more. That means you can expect an annual bill of nearly £500 during that period.

While the F-Type Coupe is a desirable car, it does depreciate quite heavily; typically after three years and 36,000 miles of ownership, we’d expect a 2.0-litre model to retain 40% of its purchase price, with a V8 model faring slightly worse at just 35% retained value. Thanks to its lower running costs, the 2.0-litre is likely to be more sought-after on the used market.

Insurance

As with any high-performance car, insurance is likely to be expensive. The entry-level four-cylinder car nestles into group 43, with the 5.0-litre V8 models falling into the highest insurance group 50.

With a car like this, it’s worth contacting your insurance company for a quote prior to making a purchase decision so you can factor the price into the cost of ownership.

Servicing

Routine servicing costs for the F-Type Coupe are roughly equivalent to those for the Jaguar XF and Jaguar XJ luxury executive saloons. However, frequent high-speed driving is likely to result in some fairly significant bills during ownership – tyres, brake discs and pads can all be expected to need renewing regularly. Keeping a high-performance car in optimal condition can prove costly.

Warranty

All Jaguars sold in the UK are covered by a three-year/unlimited-mileage warranty, which includes European roadside assistance. The warranty can be extended at extra cost by arrangement through your Jaguar dealership.
