    When Jaguar first plotted the F-type , there was no four-cylinder model in the product plan, only sixes and eights. But since its launch, the landscape has shifted: Putting a four in the F-type not only made sense, it was inevitable. The Ingenium is a 2. Perhaps apparently less logical is the decision not to offer the manual six-speed manual transmission. I know, we all bang on about the death of manuals, and then no-one buys one when given the chance. The standard alloy wheels are 18 inches in diameter, not 19 inches, but buyers will probably remedy that with a flourish of pen on the options list.

    Other than that, the key identifier is the central exhaust outlet. The rest is just as gorgeous as a V6 or a V8, including the interior, which remains the best of any modern Jaguar with its snug, cockpit-like architecture and low-set driving position. Throttle response of this turbocharged F feels much mushier after the zing of the supercharged models, and the electrically assisted steering is different too.

    You notice the weight moving around more at the rear end during the early phase of a corner, and you can exploit that to make the rear slide just a fraction; it adds to the sensation that this is a very nimble, playful kind of F-type. We drove both the convertible and coupe, and it was pretty remarkable how much stiffer and cohesive the coupe felt.

    The convertible was much fussier in the way it rode. Ah yes, the important bit. The V6 and V8 models sound sensational, so you inevitably lose something along with a couple of cylinders. The eight-speed auto helps keep you in the powerband, shifting quickly and with pleasingly physical slaps of engagement and a frisky aural accompaniment that adds another dimension to the experience too. A few small flaws aside, adding a four-cylinder Ingenium engine into the F-type mix is a success.

    It evens summons a pretty rousing soundtrack, though the V6 and V8s remain more compelling. The biggest problem could be the price. Perhaps the four-cylinder F-type would make a more compelling case for itself if the V6 was dropped, and only the more powerful PS V6 S offered. Check out the rest of our Jaguar reviews here.
