The 2018 Jaguar F-TYPE is launched with a slight rejuvenation and a visually appealing exterior seen on its headlights, rear
lights and bumper in enhancing its existing contemporary design to match the pure performance of this 2.0L turbocharged coupe.
Jaguar’s unrivalled balance of a seductive design, stunning performance and outstanding dynamics has always made the F-TYPE unique, in a range that has evolved to include Coupé body styles, manual transmissions, intelligent all-wheel drive and now a powerful four-cylinder.
The new 300PS 2.0-litre turbocharged Ingenium engine delivers Jaguar sports car’s DNA with enhanced agility as well as improved efficiency and affordability. This is a true F-TYPE, with its own unique character. This model retains the performance expected from an F-TYPE, and can accelerate from 0-100km/h in only 5.7 seconds and achieve a top speed of 250km/h. The engine’s high maximum torque of 400Nm is generated from just 1,500rpm.
The latest version introduces new futuristic LED headlights and rear lights which are among improved exterior aesthetics of the F-TYPE. The new headlights from the optional LEDs has a colour temperature of 5,500-6,000K, which feature a colour temperature that is close to daylight resulting in better visibility for night driving and definitely adds on to the styling of the car. With three different beam pattern modes to choose from (i.e: city, highway and bad weather), the driver can choose a mode that suits the driving environment.
A redesigned bumper, a new single exhaust tailpipe finisher and a new 18” wheel also give the F-TYPE a redefined look thereby adding more masculinity to the character of the car. The introduction of the new Silicon Silver exterior colour also emphasise the character lines further and exudes the boldness of the F-TYPE.
Entering the coupe, one will notice significant enhancements that are more luxurious than before. The addition of lightweight slimline seats as well as a new chrome and aluminium trim finishers heighten the driver-focused feel of the interior and perfectly complement the enhanced interior colour schemes including the Siena Tan leather option now available across the range. The seat frames are pressure die-cast magnesium alloy – a material that has a high strength-to-weight ratio and an excellent formability required for an ergonomic form of Jaguar’s innovative seat design. The weight saving compared to their predecessors is more than 8kg.
Every F-TYPE now features the Touch Pro infotainment system with a 10-inch touchscreen. Its super-fast responses, intuitive tablet-style operation, intelligent navigation functions such as Share ETA and online services such as real-time traffic and live weather reports make every journey more rewarding and put a world of information at the driver’s fingertips.
Touch Pro is the most advanced infotainment system ever offered by Jaguar and it comes including a powerful quad-core processor, high-speed 60GB Solid-State Drive (SSD) and an ultra-fast Ethernet network, Touch Pro delivers a world-class performance and functionality as well as an outstanding user experience.
The 2018 F-TYPE 2.0L Ingenium retails at RM575,800 (excluding road tax, registration, and insurance) and it is now available at all Jaguar showrooms nationwide.
