Jaguar has added a new entry-level four-cylinder engine to its F-Type lineup, and the first thing that many people asked was, “What will it sound like?”
Besides the Jaguar F-Type being one of the prettiest coupes on the market right now, it’s also one of the best sounding with its deep and burbling V8 giving enthusiasts the giggles all around and the V6 not that far behind. Turbo four-cylinders typically don’t sound as good as V6s or V8s, so naturally, people were concerned.
Thankfully, Jaguar has released a promotional video for the new four-cylinder F-Type where we can hear it. Ian Hoban, the director of the F-Type line, assures us in the video that, “It drives and sounds like a true Jaguar sports car.”
Don’t get your hopes up: the 4-cylinder Jaguar F-Type sounds nothing like the V6 or V8 and definitely isn’t as spine-tingling, but it also doesn’t sound lifeless either. The sound clip is short, but check it out in the video posted above. We can’t wait to compare this to the four-cylinder Porsche 718 Cayman and Boxster.
