2014 Jaguar F-Type Comfort & Quality

9.0
Comfort & Quality
The Jaguar F-Type is a two-seater--no package shelves masquerading as back seat nubs here. Those seats are fairly spacious in every regard except leg room; the passenger gets shorted several inches versus the driver, and neither is abundant, though only drivers over the six-foot mark will likely notice.

Aside from that one shortfall, the interior of the F-Type is quite comfortable. With the top up, all is quiet and calm. Lower the top, and wind intrusion is minimal until you begin to approach triple-digit speeds.

Worth noting are the optional fully power-adjustable seats. With a smart sport design and adjustable pneumatic bolsters, the seats are very good at holding the driver and passenger in place--and they look rather smart, too.

The 2014 Jagaur F-Type's interior is beautifully made, but a tiny trunk limits weekend getaway luggage.

The F-Type's trunk is minimal, even by sports car standards--the tiny Mazda MX-5 Miata offers more space. The seven cubic feet in the F-Type's trunk are arranged in a thin layer, making it difficult to fit even medium-sized bags.

As for materials, fit, and finish, the F-Type is absolutely on par with any other Jaguar product we've driven in recent years, which is to say: it's very well built. Beautifully stitched leather melds cleanly with robust-feeling plastic and metal trim, doors shut firmly and solidly, and the controls all seem meaty and durable in hand.
