The Jaguar F-Type four-cylinder has arrived Down Under with pricing starting from $107,012+ORC for the entry-level sports car.

THE 221KW JAGUAR F-TYPE 2.0-litre four-cylinder (221kW and 400Nm) has finally arrived in Australia completing that model’s line-up here. Prices start at $107,012+ORC. The F-Type four-cylinder can get from 0-100km/h in 5.7 seconds and has a top speed of 249km/h; the engine is mated to an eight-speed automatic.

Ron Lee, Engineering Director of Powertrain, Jaguar Land Rover, said: “The 221kW Ingenium petrol engine is engineered to deliver a compelling blend of performance, refinement and efficiency. Cutting-edge technologies including electrohydraulic intake valve lift control, integrated exhaust manifold and a twin-scroll turbocharger with ceramic ball bearings make this the most advanced petrol engine we’ve ever produced.

“Not only is this the most powerful four-cylinder ever offered in a production Jaguar, it also develops the highest specific power and torque ratings of any engine in the F-TYPE range. It’s a natural fit for a Jaguar sports car.”

Practical Motoring will have a first drive review in the New Year.
