Fuel economy

Petrol engines 25.0 - 31.1 mpg
  • Mid-20s for most of the F-Type models 
  • Manual gearboxes harm economy 
  • Driving quickly will see the figures drop

It’s a sports car so this really shouldn’t be upper most in your mind but Jaguar F-Type running costs are surprisingly good.

The 2.0-litre four-cylinder is, unsurprisingly, the most economical, claiming 30.4-31.2mpg. Move up to the 340hp V6 and you can expect 25.1mpg from the rear-wheel drive manual, while the automatic returns up to 27.9mpg. 

Next up, the 380hp V6 with rear-wheel drive and manual gearbox should do 24.6mpg, while the automatic version is slightly better at 26.2mpg. Add all-wheel drive into the mix and it falls again slightly to 25.4mpg. 

Surprisingly, the V8s claim around 25mpg each, but this is unlikely in the real world if you spend a lot of the time driving it to enjoy that sound. It’ll easily tumble into the teens if you do this.

As with the fuel economy figures, it’s the 2.0-litre petrol that returns the most impressive CO2 emissions figures at 179g/km. 

The V6s fall anywhere between 223 and 242g/km, while the V8s aren’t far behind at all at 249g/km for both the 550hp and 575hp versions.

Jaguar usually scores extremely well for customer satisfaction surveys.

Also the company has a strong reputation for building aluminium cars plus many of the parts used on the car have come from other models in the Jaguar range.
