The two-tone Ebony and Oyster leather in our test car grants the XF Sportbrake a light, airy and pleasant interior, but the Jaguar otherwise shows its age from behind the wheel.
While it is easy enough to learn how to use and integrated cleanly into the XF’s dash fascia, the software and graphics are now starting to show their age – particularly against the increasingly advanced systems now offered by all three of Jaguar’s German rivals.
That said, most of the features you’d expect to find at this price point are present. Satellite navigation, DAB radio and Bluetooth connectivity are all standard, although Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are conspicuous by their absence. JLR’s InControl software provides an alternative in this regard and enables apps such as Spotify to be used on the go.
