Jaguar F-Type Long-Term Update 7: 2015 F-Type R Coupe

File this under color me surprised. We swallowed a spoonful of grief a couple COTYs ago when we praised the Corvette Stingray for its fuel economy but mistakenly dinged the Jaguar F-Type for its thirst. (Real MPG was pending and proved us wrong.) The EPA numbers for the 5.0-liter, supercharged V-8 sex machine are 16/23 city/highway, slightly worse than a 4x4 Ford F-150 with the 2.7-liter EcoBoost. But hey, the curvalicious baddie Brit is a sports car with 550 horsepower. It's supposed to get pickup-esque mileage. Want better? Buy a Prius, Captain Joykiller.

The plastic bottom of the luggage cover has partially separated from the carpeted top part. We blame glue not designed for California.© Provided by MotorTrend The plastic bottom of the luggage cover has partially separated from the carpeted top part. We blame glue not designed for California. Our Real MPG numbers for the F-Type are substantially better than what the sticker on the window says. City mileage rises from 16 to 19 mpg. But the red Jag's city mileage ain't nothing compared to how it performs on the highway—28.9 mpg. The EPA combined number is 18 mpg, but our guys racked up 22.3. A discrepancy of 24 percent. That is, to quote the usually not very quotable Paris Hilton, huge.
