Hear The Growl Of The New Four-Cylinder Jaguar F-Type

Don’t worry, the new four-cylinder Jaguar F-Type still sounds sweet.

Written By:

Possibly no car is competent enough of producing as sweet of an exhaust note as a Jaguar F-Type outfitted with a supercharged V-8, but the four-cylinder variant of the sports car is giving it a good try.

In the video above, the more economical F-Type revs its engine, and it's sufficient to get us all fired up. It sounds a bit like other four-cylinder performance cars; it's got a bass-heavy growl with some free-flowing exhaust rumbling.

Jaguar is offering an F-Type with a turbocharged 2.0-litre four cylinder unit from its Ingenium engine family. Though it can't churn out 550bhp like the F-Type R, the new model produces a healthy 296bhp and 400Nm of torque mated to an 8-speed automatic gearbox that sending power to the rear wheels.

The new four-cylinder Jaguar F-Type might not be the quickest sports car of the line, with an estimated 0-100km/h in 5.4 seconds, but its lighter weight guarantees increased agility.

"The introduction of the four-cylinder does not mean that drivers lose out on aural feedback or reward: these have always been an essential part of the F-type's appeal, and have not been compromised," Jaguar originally stated.

"A meticulously-tuned active exhaust is standard on entry-level F-type models, while the R-Dynamic variants feature a switchable active exhaust for an even more involving driving experience," Jaguar further added.
