Jaguar F-Type Convertible review

£56,880 - £128,105
Published: 22 Mar 2021


What is it like on the inside?

It’s a strict two seater where interior storage is at a premium and boot capacity is sadly lacking. There is zero space behind the seats, so if two of you are on board coats and jackets will need to travel in the boot, and wallets, phones and keys will have to find some space in the shallow door pockets (largely inaccessible when the doors are closed), glovebox and central cupholders and locker. None of which are generous.

And nor is that boot itself. Just 132 litres, and oddly shaped, broad and shallow, not much suited for carrying anything other than coats and jackets. Squishy bags are going to have to be squished to fit.

It’s just as well that the interior design is decent. It used to be fabulous, but time has ticked on and the F-Type’s materials and quality haven’t, which means you cast your eyes around a little disappointed at what your money has bought you. The shaping of the centre console, the driver-centric layout and dash is all good, we have no issue with the joystick-style gear selector and the air vents that rise up out of the dash top add a welcome bit of theatre. Updates to the on-board infotainment mean Jaguar has just about kept pace with its German rivals.
