Now that Jaguar’s F-type fleet includes six distinct models, picking one that best suits your fancy can be daunting. The coupes excel in aesthetics and practicality, the convertibles are more fun. Venturing beyond that body-style fork, this test of a V-6 S coupe should assist your smart purchase decision.

The $77,925 S coupe lives at the sensible end of the price range; it is $12,000 more than the base hardtop, $22,000 less than the 550-hp R coupe, and $15,000 less than the most powerful convertible. What you get here is the aluminum-intensive body and chassis common to all F-types, a ZF eight-speed paddle-shifted automatic (a manual is coming soon), and a 3.0-liter supercharged V-6 boosted to 380 horsepower. Spending the extra $12,000 over the base coupe means 40 additional ponies, one-inch-larger (19-inch) wheels, bigger front brakes, cockpit-adjustable dampers, a limited-slip differential, launch control, and what Jaguar calls an Active Sport Exhaust system.
