With the mid-cycle facelift, Jaguar has brought in a complete makeover for the F-Type regarding its new front-end and updated interior. The 2020 F-Type comes with an entirely new face that bears no similarity with that of its predecessor. The automaker manages to give the new F-Type a wider and longer look at the front without having to tweak its dimensions. The sportscar now features J-shaped LED headlamps, refreshed front grille and bumper that seems to sit in a lower position. Still, the F-Type retains its breathtaking silhouette with muscular lines and creases on its body. Changes are also minor at the rear, save for a set of slimmer taillights.
The interior of the Jaguar F-Type sports the most significant updates. The all-new luxury car now makes use of materials with higher quality. There’s a large 10-inch touchscreen infotainment system that packs Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity along with a massive 12.3-inch screen for the digital instrument cluster.
The 2020 Jaguar F-Type offers two engine options to choose from, including a 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine making 300 HP of max power (P300) and 400 Nm of peak torque, alongside a massive 5.0-litre supercharged V8 motor available in two states of tune. You read that right, the less powerful version (P450) is capable of developing 450 HP and 580 Nm while the more powerful V8 (P575) can put out 575 HP and a whopping 700 Nm of peak torque.
The F-Type is claimed to sprint up to 100 kmph from a standstill in 5.7 seconds (for the 300 HP model), 4.6 seconds (for the P450) and only 3.7 seconds (for the most powerful version). It achieves the top speeds rated at 250 kmph, 285 kmph and 300 kmph, respectively. Transmission duties are taken over by an 8-speed automatic unit as standard across the range. The P300 and P450 are rear-wheel-drive models while the range-topping P575 is all-wheel-drive.
