What is it? You no longer need to splash your cash on the top-of-the-range 5.0 litre V8 or 3.0 litre V6 as a  new greener and crucially cheaper turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder Ingenium petrol engine has joined the F-Type line up.

First impressions of the new Jaguar F-type?  Stylish, sassy, sexy, this seductive two seater is simply one of the most stunning looking cars. Subtle changes to the 2017 car include  new led headlamps and redesigned bumpers.

What about the interior?  Slip into the driver’s seat of the F-Type and you’ll instantly feel like a star. Everything’s geared towards making you feel glamorous from the sports steering wheel to the sumptuous seats. The F-Type also gets the latest touch pro infotainment system. Luggage space at 310 litres means you won’t struggle to swallow the spoils from a day’s worth of shopping.

Engine choice? The new 296hp 2.0 petrol engine is the most powerful four  cylinder ever in a production Jaguar.

Jaguar F-type on road?  It is also the lightest F-Type ever and can accelerate from 0-60 in only 5.4 seconds with a top speed of 155mph. On the road it feels light, agile and precise and sounds incredible with an engine growl that is sure to turn heads and  the steering is incredibly accurate, just point it in the direction you want to go and off it shoots.

How much? Prices start at  £49,900 plus fuel economy is a decent  39.2mpg and CO2 emissions are 163g/km.

How safe? The F-Type comes equipped with a full array of safety features to lessen the risk of accidents and to protect occupants and other road uses. New technologies including Autonomous Emergency braking, Lane Keep Assist and Driver Condition Mointor.

What are my options? There is also the range topping  F-Type with its 5.0-litre V8 supercharged petrol producing 495hp or a 3.0 litre with 380 hp.
