2018 Jaguar F-Type
The Jag’s steering is delightfully light and accurate, if not exactly dripping with road feel. The standard 18-inch Michelin rubber on my test car split the difference between grip and comfort. Pushed hard, the F-Type was reluctant to let go. It’s not exactly the kind of sports car that buys into the “slow car fast” mantra since it’s rather rapid, but among F-Types, it's easiest to squeeze the most (legal) fun out of the 4-cylinder version.
My low-option tester—$65,663 with heated seats, a panoramic glass roof, and a few comfort items—best encapsulates the new entry-level F-Type’s virtues. It’s roomier and softer than a Porsche 718 Cayman, which seems like its closest rival. Pick the British Racing Green paint—because this F-Type honors the brand’s past better than the more manic 6- and 8-cylinder models—and set about on your continental journey.
