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.
Featuring two large analog dials – essential in a sports car – instruments are simple, clear and easy to read. The three-spoke steering wheel incorporates key functions for ease of control. On automatic models, gear selector paddles mounted behind the spokes, let you select gears sequentially with your fingertips, without taking your hands from the wheel. The console-mounted Jaguar SportShift Selector offers full Auto Mode plus a Sport Mode, which allows manual operation for even greater driver involvement. Sequential gear selection is provided by tipping the lever forward to shift down a ratio, and pulling it back to shift up a gear. The F-TYPE has an 8 inch color Touch-screen that provides intuitive control of many features, including navigation and infotainment systems such as Jaguar InControl® and the 770W Meridian™ Sound System.5
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.
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 – you may want to 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 (on automatic transmission models) are on the back. For the ultimate high-performance feel, a flat-bottomed racing-style steering wheel comes standard on the S and R models. Both steering wheel styles can be heated, essential for top-down driving on chilly days, if fitted with the optional Climate Pack or Premium + Vision Pack. The Climate Pack is standard on R models.
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 and F-TYPE S come standard with the Sport style seat which features 14-way power adjustments and leather trim with Suedecloth center sections for high grip during cornering. The F-TYPE R 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 an option on the F-TYPE and F-TYPE S models. 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 + Vision Pack. The F-TYPE R features the Climate Pack as standard, and also features the ‘R’ badge embossed on the headrests.
The Suedecloth Interior Pack further enhances the sporty, dynamic appeal of the F-TYPE interior. This option includes Performance Seats in Premium leather with Suedecloth facings, door inserts, instrument binnacle detailing and grab handle trim. The Suedecloth touches extend to headlining and visors as well. The Pack also includes Cirrus contrast stitching on seats, doors and fascia.
Push the start button and the F-TYPE roars to life with a cascade of light from the console’s switchgear. Configurable Lighting, standard on the
F-TYPE S and 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 set of luggage or two golf bags. 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 (standard on R Coupe). 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 set of luggage.
