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 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.
