More tech for updated Jaguar F-Type

Sportiest Jaguar is set for 2018 thanks to style and technology upgrades

Jaguar's F-Type coupe and convertible have been treated to a raft of updates for 2018.

Thanks to the driving pleasure it offers, the F-Type already has broad appeal – its wide model line-up can rival both the Mercedes SLC and more expensive SL, and competes with both the Porsche 718 Boxster and Cayman and the legendary 911. With the latest improvements, the F-Type should be an even more tempting proposition at both ends of the range.

The line-up now uses a similar naming structure to Land Rover, with the model hierarchy ranked by power output. Notably, even the the entry-level, four-cylinder 2.0-litre P300 now has brake-based torque vectoring, as do the V6-engined P340 and P380, the latter of which gains a limited-slip differential and adaptive suspension. The previous 400 Sport has been discontinued, but the fire-breathing V8-engined F-Type R and SVR remain.

The F-Type has also received a welcome infotainment update, with Jaguar's InControl Touch Pro system now standard. It uses a 10-inch touchscreen and it's promised that Apple CarPlay and Android Auto will be introduced later in the year. Elsewhere, the interior is brightened up by new air-vent trims and a frameless rear-view mirror.

Outside, there are new alloy wheel designs and the SVR can be chosen with a subtle 'spoiler delete' option. Thanks to 18 new paint colours, it should be easier to ensure your new F-Type stands out from a crowd, too. And for an extra £6,000, many of the new hues are available with a matt finish through Jaguar's Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) division.

You can order an updated Jaguar F-Type now, with prices starting at £50,810 for the P300 Coupe. More aggressive R-Dynamic models with LED lights, sports exhausts and bigger wheels cost an additional £3,700, with the Convertible priced £5,500 higher. The flagship SVR Convertible costs £118,235.

Customer deliveries are expected to begin next month.
