Snackable Review: Jaguar F-Type V6 S AWD Coupe

The Jaguar F-Type V6 S AWD Coupe is sure to steal hearts with its gorgeous looks and good all-round performance. But it comes at a premium over faster rivals.

PLUS

  • Stunning looks, guaranteed to turn heads regardless of what else is around.
  • The supercharged V6 sounds great, has plenty of power and the eight-speed automatic gearbox is smooth.
  • Adding all-wheel drive does little to dampen the F-Type's agile handling, but adds security on slippery roads.
  • Steering and brakes are excellent, the Jaguar F-Type doesn't just look like a sports car, it feels like one to drive as well.

MINUS

  • Costs quite a lot, particularly as a lot of desirable equipment is optional.
  • Practicality. Forgo a spare wheel and there's reasonable space under the rear hatch, but you're still going to want to pack light for a weekend away.
  • Not as outright fast as rivals like the BMW M4 and Mercedes-AMG C63.
  • All-wheel drive adds almost $17K and is unlikely to be necessary for most drivers.
