2020 BMW 7-Series vs 2020 Jaguar F-Type

 

The 2020 BMW 7 Series is a blend of luxury and comfort, and also a combination of an exceptionally spacious cabin with potent engine options. It may have some technological drawbacks, but it offers outstanding on-road performance and all key technologies are present.

The 2020 Jaguar F-Type earns top marks for its responsive handling and the multiple engine choices it offers. But it fails to meet the cabin standards in its class, being placed at the bottom of our luxury sports car rankings.

Design & Style

The two-door F-Type is a 2-Seater sports car with both coupe and convertible body styles. It comes with supportive, comfortable seats that keep passengers steady even on curvy roads. It has plenty of room for most adults and the interior contains some high-quality materials. However, the cabins in lower trims have an ill-fitting hard plastic which fails to give the luxury touch like in its rival’s. Some may also find it uncomfortable to climb this low-slung car.

The 7 Series standard configuration is a 5-seater but the upgrades in higher trim levels only have the capacity for four occupants. This luxury sedan comes with a spacious interior, plenty of head- and legroom, and heated front seats. The front seats also have 20-way power adjustments for the greater convenience of passengers.  The acoustic side glass in its uplevel models keep the cabin soundproof, plus you also get several upgrade options like air fragrance system, ceramic controls, wood inlays, etc.

Technology & Safety

2020 Jaguar F-Type is equipped with plenty of standard tech like Apple CarPlay, AndroidAuto, 10-inch touch screen, etc. Its navigation system has sharp graphics and is also quite user-friendly; it lacks the innovation that you find in its rival brands. The infotainment system too is quite complicated. Some additional tech features like HD Radio, 10-speaker Meridian sound system, Smartphone integration with Jaguar’s InControl Apps are present in this model. It has some major safety features like lane keep assist, automatic emergency braking, speed limiter, blind spot monitoring, etc.

For 2020, BMW 7 has witnessed some useful upgrades like the standard voice controls in its infotainment system. The simple voice commands make it easy to use applications like the navigation system, get fuel warning, change radio stations, etc. You can also interact with the system using the standard gesture control.  Android users may be disappointed by the missing Android Auto, but it has most other important features plus a panoramic moonroof with power shade, Harman Kardon surround-sound system, quad-zone automatic climate control and a long list of safety functions like adaptive cruise control, parking sensor, forward collision warning, rear cross traffic alert, and plenty more.

Performance

Jaguar comes with a simplified powertrain on its F-type model and its engines are paired with 8-speed automatic transmission. Both V-6 and V-8 engines come with standard all-wheel-drive for a power-packed performance. The basic trim offers the 296-hp turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine and lets you choose between rear- or all-wheel drive.  For a beastly engine-power, you may go with a higher trim and get a V-8.

2020 BMW 7-Series has a different powertrain for each trim level, which means you get to choose from different engine options. Paired with each engine is a slick shifting 8-speed automatic transmission for a smooth ride. Even the base trim level, 740i, produces plenty of horsepower. The base engine consists of a turbocharged 3.0-liter six-cylinder which produces 335 hp. The 740e is now replaced by 745e which is a PHEV that includes a turbocharged 3.0-liter straight-six engine and produces 389 hp.

The Bottom Line

Jaguar F-type is a sleek looking car with great handling; however, it misses the upscale composition inside its cabin and is not a good pick if you are seeking pampering accommodation. BMW 7-series is an amalgamation of sporty elegance and fine interior. The cabin engulfs you in a tech-fest of creature comfort while the extremely potent engine blows your mind with its humongous performance.
