British Refinement Built with the Track in Mind

When you're looking for the ultimate British sports car, the 2020 Jaguar F-TYPE has you covered with one of the sharpest designs you'll find on the St. Petersburg roads. Other drivers can't help but stop and admire as this ride's body lines seamlessly flow in an aerodynamic fashion.

Meanwhile, the available carbon fiber roof packs a woven design under a lacquered finish for the ultimate sporty look while also cutting weight for maximum performance. When you're ready to let the natural Florida rays in, raise and lower your top in a rapid 12 seconds at speeds up to 30 mph in the convertible models. In the back, slim LED red lights leave a lasting impression on all drivers you pass on the highways.

Get behind the wheel of this Jaguar, and you'll enjoy miles of sporty and track-spirited rides to match the looks. But how does this fine ride stack up against other good-looking sports cars? See how this ride compares as we explore the 2020 Jaguar F-TYPE vs Chevy Corvette. Or take the 2020 Jaguar F-TYPE for a spin yourself with a test drive when you visit Jaguar St. Petersburg.

The Pinnacle of British Performance

When it comes to track-worthy performance, the 2020 Jaguar F-TYPE never disappoints thanks to features like the aluminum double-wishbone suspension. Combined with the Electric Power Assisted Steering (EPAS), these features allow you to dive into corners at full speed, and exit with finesse like a pro. You'll also get your choice between four available braking systems—including available carbon ceramic brakes for help coming to a stop in demanding condition, or taking a quick turn while making your engine growl.

For even more sporty handling, Torque Vectoring allows for braking inside the front and rear wheels when you corner for the ultimate racecar performance. Take it a step further with the available Electronic Active Differential, which manages the torque in each rear wheel for even more powerful steering, grip, and handling when you need it.

Under the hood of your 2020 F-TYPE works one of three motors to keep the action coming. Even the base 2.0L 4-cylinder turbocharged engine packs 296 horsepower for fun drives anywhere—whether it's a commute to Bradenton or a cruise across the state. For maximum power, opt for the available 5.0L V8 engine for supercar-tier 575 horsepower and 516 lb-ft torque. It's all the power you'll need to rush from 0-60 in an eye-blinking 3.5 seconds. Or get up and going on US-19 to reach Palm Harbor in record time.

To further help with those big supercar specs, you'll have an 8-speed Quickshift automatic transmission precisely shifting gears, allowing for aggressive speed and smooth cruises. Keep the ride going on slick roads with available all-wheel drive sending power to all four wheels to maintain control.

By comparison, the 6.2L V8 DI motor is standard across all 2020 Chevy Corvette Stingrays. With 490 horsepower and 465 lb-ft torque (upgradeable to 495 horsepower and 470 lb-ft torque), you'll enjoy quick and sporty rides, albeit at the cost of nearly 100 horsepower and torque when compared to the 2020 Jaguar F-TYPE.

There's plenty of sporty options packed into the 2020 Corvette like a Limited-Slip rear differential, available double wishbone suspension, and power steering. However, rear-wheel drive is your only option—which is what gives the 2020 Jaguar F-TYPE a win for performance.

An Interior Tailored to Your Style

When you step inside the 2020 Jaguar F-TYPE, you'll get your choice of color, stitching, and materials to ensure your cabin fits your personal tastes. Make yourself comfortable in the driver's seat, and watch all your critical information appear on two analog dials that are always easy to read.

Keep the sporty vibes alive with the seats constructed from light magnesium. They're designed to ensure every drive is comfortable, yet these seats also help cut weight to keep the 2020 F-TYPE running at optimal performance. Make sure your cabin reflects that high performance or Sunday driving moods with ambient lighting, filling your cabin with soft and vibrant glows of color of your choice.

Stay connected on the road with the standard 10-inch touchscreen. With Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™, you'll respond to your texts, calls, and jam out to your saved tunes hands-free. You can also listen to more than 100 stations of commercial-free music, news, and comedy with standard SiriusXM™ satellite radio. Need to find your way around Clearwater? A standard navigation system has you covered with turn-by-turn directions and points of interest to help you find local fuel stations and restaurants.

Enter the 2020 Chevy Corvette, and you'll also find a sporty interior. Instead of analog dials displaying accurate measures, you'll have a digital system for your speedometer and tachometer. For your infotainment, you'll have an 8-inch touch screen (two inches smaller than the F-TYPE) also loaded with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and SiriusXM. However, note that navigation does not come standard. You'll also have a spacious trunk with 12.6 cubic feet of cargo space, but your adventures are ready for anything when you choose the 2020 F-TYPE with nearly two more cubic feet of cargo space at 14.4 cubic feet.

Safety's Never Compromised for the Sportiness

The 2020 Jaguar F-TYPE values your safety—which is why numerous driver-assists come standard to help you securely navigate around Florida—while also making your drives easier. Stay alert during all your rides with a Driver Condition Monitor. When you display signs of drowsiness or fatigue, your sports car lets you know to pull over and take a break before your driving becomes dangerous.

When you're hauling down the highways, Lane Keep Assist sends you alerts when you accidentally leave your lane to help you prevent side collisions. Meanwhile, Traffic Sign Recognition with Adaptive Speed Limiter keeps you updated on the local speed limits and conditions so that you can always obey the local traffic laws.

After a long day of driving, Front Parking Aid and Rear Parking Aid are here to help you navigate into those tight parallel spots. When you pull too close to other items, you'll hear alerts, letting you know to hit the brakes and avoid a dent.

For standard safety in the 2020 Corvette, Rear Park Assist comes standard to help you back into those ultra-tight spaces. However, features like Traffic Sign Recognition and a Driver Condition Monitor aren't available—which gives the 2020 Jaguar F-TYPE the win for safety.
