Jenny reviews the 2019 Jaguar F-Type in the r-design trim and with a 2 litre turbocharged engine. The newly introduced to Australia smaller 2 litre engine for the F-Type is a controversial choice.

It’s a convertible, it has an 8-speed ZF automatic and its also a RWD. The engine turbocharged Inline 4 engine has 221 kW of power and 400 Nm of torque.

Other engine options for the Jaguar F-Type include a V6 that Simone reviewed a while back that gives closer to 300 kW and a beastly V8 with 423 kW.
