F-Type interior a disappointment?

G'day,

Am I the only one who is deeply unimpressed with the interior of the F-Type?

Just crappy plastics, cheap-looking switchgear, a 1998-look centre-console, no wood (not even an option - isn't this a Jaguar?), and overall looking like it wouldn't be out of place in a low-rent 15-year-old Chrysler?

For the money - in Australia I expect my fully-loaded V8S to cost AUD$300,000 / GBP$200,000 / USD$315,000 - when I saw the prototype at the Sydney Show in person I nearly died from disappointment. Take a look at a Bentley or Aston and you're more on track with what I was expecting.

It's just so - er - crap. No class, refinement, style, character. Just bluntly functional - a 'there you go - an interior' approach that even Peugeot wouldn't dare to try and get away with.

Look forward to your comments.

The F-type certainly could do with a more upmarket approach to its interior , most likely it will improve with time , one of my pet hates is the non sporty looking steering wheel cheap looking plastics , maybe Jag should look at the Audi interiors for some inspiration

Had the opportunity to view the F-type in the Flesh and my earlier comment may have been a bit harsh as i quite like the finnish however , it can allways be improved .

The interior of the F-Type is actually quite nice in my opinion. Very nice leather, the steering wheel looks and feels great, very up class. As a comparison point with a similarly priced vehicle look at the Porsche line up. To get a Porsche optioned out in leather the way the F-Type is costs $$$ ( I should know, I had a couple before moving to the F-type ). In the US the F-Type new is about a third the price of a Bentley ( or more if you look at a V-6 model ) and almost half an Aston Martin.
