British car maker Jaguar has updated its flagship sports car - the F-Type - for the 2019 model year. The two-door coupe and convertible version of the Jaguar F-Type get a host of feature upgrades for the new year including a bigger infotainment screen, special paint options and torque vectoring. The updated F-Type also gets the automaker's new power-based badging system as part of the changes. Visually, the 2019 edition gets no changes and continues to boast its beautiful curves that we've grown to love.
At the outset, the 2019 Jaguar F-Type now gets the P300 nameplate for the entry-level four-cylinder model, while the V6 models are badged as either P340 or P380. Jaguar has discontinued the F-Type 400 Sport globally from the model range, but the F-Type R and SVR models remain unchanged.
Inside, the upgrades on the 2019 Jaguar F-Type include a new 10-inch InControl Touch Pro infotainment screen as standard. The unit however, does not support Apple CarPlay or Android Auto yet, but Jaguar did say that the infotainment system will receive the update sometime later this year. There's a new trim for the air vents as well, along with frameless rear view mirror.
Another major update includes the new brake-based torque vectoring system on the 2019 Jaguar F-Type. The P380 trim also adds a limited-slip differential and adaptive dampers to the package.
The MY2019 Jaguar F-Type is available in a total of 18 paint options, while customers can also opt for different paint finishes including matte, gloss and so on, courtesy of the automaker's Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) division. Other personalisation options include new alloy wheel designs, while the F-Type SVR gets the spoiler delete option as well.
Engine options on the Jaguar F-Type include a 2.0-litre four-cylinder motor on the entry-level coupe, while the P340 and P380 use a 3.0-litre V6 supercharged engine. The top-of-the-line F-Type SVR Coupe and Convertible use the 5.0-litre Supercharged V8 engine with 567 bhp on offer.
Prices for the 2019 Jaguar F-Type start from 50,810 Pounds for the basic coupe version, while the range-topping SVR convertible is priced at 118,235 Pounds. The automaker has commenced accepting orders for the 2019 edition in the UK, while deliveries are set to begin by next month.
Expect Jaguar Land Rover to introduce the 2019 F-Type in India as well later this year. The model is built in the UK and comes to India as a Completely Built Unit (CBU). Expect prices for the 2019 Jaguar F-Type to start north of ₹ 1 crore, going all the way to nearly ₹ 3 crore for the SVR version.
