The 2019 Jaguar F-Type coupe and roadster versions now get torque-vectoring and a bigger 10-inch touchscreen infotainment system as standard across the range.
While the new Jaguar F-Type SVR is grabbing all the headlines, the company’s given the rest of the F-Type range a couple of updates to keep new buyers happy. Thankfully, most of the updates are functional and not just cosmetic.
Standard equipment on the 2019 Jaguar F-Type now includes brake-based torque vectoring and a bigger 10-inch touchscreen infotainment system. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are still missing surprisingly, but Jaguar will roll out updates later this year and that’ll bring smartphone connectivity feature to the system.
Jaguar has also introduced new nomenclature to the F-Type range with this update. The entry-level 2.0-litre turbo model will come badged as P300 (300 refers to the power output of the variant metric – 300PS). The 3.0-litre supercharged V6 engines will don P340 and P380 badges. The V6 variants now also get limited-slip differential and adaptive dampers as standard. The range-topping supercharged V8 variants will continue with R and SVR monikers.
There are a couple more changes, including redesigned air-vents and a frameless rear-view mirror. Additionally, the 2019 F-Type will have as many as 18 exterior colour options, including matte-finish paint schemes.
At the moment, the 2019 F-Type will go on sale in UK from May 2018. However, it shouldn’t take Jaguar Land Rover India long to bring the new F-Type to our shores, since the company recently announced that it’ll launch 10 new models in the country during 2018-19.
