When Jaguar introduced their all-new F-Type, back in 2013, the car became an instant hit and now, two years later, the sales are great and there are only positive reviews of the car. F-Type is based on the platform of the XK convertible and it is a direct successor of the Jaguar XKR. Now, the Indian owned British manufacturer has decided to deliver an early update of the car, which is going to be sold as a 2016 Jaguar F-Type Coupe. Since this is a mid-cycle update, there are going to be introduced only some minor changes, while the all-new F-Type is not even in plans of the company.
When it comes to the exterior, there are practically going to be no changes introduced with the 2016 Jaguar F-Type Coupe. The only change that can actually be seen, especially when compared with the previous model is that the new F-Type in all-wheel drive version has different design of the hood with completely different air intakes. That is basically everything that is going to be changed. However, at the Auto Show in Los Angeles (where the company introduced the 2016 Jaguar F-Type Coupe) they have shown a new version of the F-Type – the convertible.
Unlike the exterior of the 2016 Jaguar F-Type Coupe, the interior gets more updates and changes. First of all, the new F-Type gets a completely new center console, along with the new central tunnel, between the driver and the passenger (the central tunnel had to be redesigned, in order to be able to fit the newest feature available with the 2016 Jaguar F-Type Coupe – the 6-speed manual gearbox). Furthermore, the features and equipment list will be expanded and the newest additions are: new multimedia system, Meridian premium audio system with 770W amplifier, power seats which are adjustable in 14 directions, panoramic roof (available only in the 2016 Jaguar F-Type Coupe), breaking distribution system, electric power steering, power tailgate and lots of safety and assistance systems.
The British manufacturer decided to incorporate InControl secure and InControl remote systems. InControl secure is a system that warns the owner if the car is being stolen and immediately contacts law enforcement. InControl remote function enables the owner to check the locks status and fuel level on his or her smartphone. Furthermore, by using the InControl remote, owner can start the car or control the climate settings.

The new Jaguar F-Type Coupe is available with three different engines – first is the 3.0l V6 engine that produces 340 horsepower and it is going to be paired with the new 6-speed manual transmission. Second is the same engine, but with more power – 380 horsepower and it comes with automatic transmission. The third engine is the most powerful – 5.0l V8 engine that produces 550 horsepower and it only comes with automatic transmission.
