The Jaguar F-Type is an all-new, two-seater open top sports car, something that the British company has not produced in many years. Front engined with a choice of three engines, it is exclusively rear-wheel drive and - for now - features a fabric roof.

As you would expect from a premium manufacturer the Jaguar F-Type safety levels are impressive for both passive and active safety systems.

There is the usual mix of airbags for driver and passenger plus there is ABS, emergency brake assist and stability control. There are also chrome roll over hoops if the worst comes to the worst and the car flips over.

Reliability

This is an all-new car so there is no track record as yet for Jaguar F-Type reliability but the British company scores extremely well for customer satisfaction surveys.

Also the company has a strong reputation for building aluminium cars plus many of the parts used on the car have come from other models in the Jaguar range.
