FEATURES & OPTIONS
With its driver-focused cockpit architecture, simple controls and clear instrumentation, the F-TYPE interior conveys a combination of functional ergonomics and sporting style. It is designed to put the driver first and, with a wide choice of interior colors and textures, presents an excellent opportunity for individual expression.
At one with the car and the road – you and the F-TYPE connect from the moment you press the start button and the engine roars to life. The cabin architecture is designed to provide optimum visibility with minimal distractions. Its 1+1 configuration wraps around the driver, sitting low in the heart of the F-TYPE, close to the center of gravity.
The F-TYPE starts with quintessential British character, but its ultimate personality is up to you. The choices you make create the car you’ll love. Tailor your choices from different seat options, specifying the textures and color combinations. With an exceptional collection of styling packs, accessories and options, your F-TYPE truly becomes your ideal sports car.
To keep the center console as low and sleek as possible, the F-TYPE features Active Center Air Vents. They are activated automatically by the climate control system, and only rise when needed for extra airflow, retracting when not in use. With these deployable air vents, plus the door handles and rear spoiler, the F-TYPE keeps its technology hidden until needed.
The interior of the F-TYPE R Coupe dials up the intensity of the 1+1 experience to represent the pinnacle of Jaguar craftsmanship and dynamics. The R theme gives the car a unique personality and includes Dark Technical Weave Aluminum on the center console finishers. There is premium leather with twin needle stitching and, for more lateral support during more enthusiastic driving, body-hugging Performance seats with R embossed on the headrest. The car also features an R flat-bottomed sport steering wheel with Ignis paddles.
Making a powerful statement, the F-TYPE S and V8 S Performance Pack option includes Gloss Black air-vent surrounds and door-switch surrounds. The dark theme continues with Gloss Black instrumentation rings and Black Hex Aluminum console trim. The flat-bottomed Sport steering wheel included with the Performance Pack also features Gloss Black trim.
Reduce wind noise further for even more peaceful open-top driving with this optional wind deflector, which fits between the rollover protection system.4
The F-TYPE is a pure two-door, two-seat sports car. The driver-focused, asymmetric cockpit is referred to as a “1+1” cabin. The emphasis is on the driver, with a clear division between the driver and passenger sides created by a prominent grab handle on the center console and different trim materials on either side. The grab handle separates the passenger from the driving controls, sending a clear message that these controls are driver interfaces. It also serves as a subtle signal to the potential of the car – it might be time to buckle up and hold on tight.
Every F-TYPE comes standard with a small diameter, three-spoke, leather-covered steering wheel. Multi-function controls for the audio system and cruise control are on the front of the spokes, and paddle shifters for the transmission are on the back. For the ultimate high-performance feel, a flat-bottomed racing-style steering wheel is included in the Performance Pack on the S and V8 S. Both steering wheel styles can be heated, essential for top-down driving on chilly days, if fitted with the optional Climate Pack or Premium Pack. The flat-bottomed steering wheel and the Climate Pack are both standard on the R model.
The dual-function climate-control dials feature LED displays for temperature. On cars equipped with heated seats, the same dials also control seat heating – pushing the dial in changes the display and function to seat-heat control. These unique dials help keep the center dash free of clutter, and add a high-tech touch. Below the dials are toggle switches for the other climate control functions. These switches echo the controls of classic Jaguar sports cars, and are finished in soft-feel matte black.
Two seat styles are available in the F-TYPE. The F-TYPE, S and V8 S come standard with the Sport style seat. On the F-TYPE and F-TYPE S this deeply bolstered seat features six-way power and manual adjustments and leather trim with Suedecloth center sections for high grip during cornering. The F-TYPE V8 S features full leather seat facings and 14-way power adjustment. A racing-style Performance seat is standard on the F-TYPE R and available as a standalone option or as part of the Performance Pack on the S and V8 S. Its aggressive bolstering helps keep the driver in place during spirited driving. Heated seats are available as part of the optional Climate Pack or Premium Pack. The F-TYPE R features the Climate Pack as standard, and also features the ‘R’ badge embossed on the headrests.
Push the start button and the F-TYPE comes alive with a cascade of light from the console’s switchgear. Configurable Lighting, standard on the
F-TYPE S, the F-TYPE V8 S and the F-TYPE R, adds unique personalization, with choices of Phosphor Blue, Pale Blue, White, Coral or Red to suit your mood. Activate Dynamic Mode and the lighting switches to vibrant Red on the door grab handles, center console and instrument cluster.
The F-TYPE Coupe models offer the usability and practicality of a versatile trunk space area. With a capacity of up to 11.65 cubic feet, it is large enough to accommodate a full set of luggage. For ease of access and added convenience, the tailgate can be opened or closed at the touch of a button with the optional powered function. At 7 cubic feet, the F-TYPE Convertible models trunk capacity is larger than the sector average. It is capable of accommodating a golf bag or a full set of luggage.
