The new XE will be the first model from Jaguar Land Rover to get an all-new infotainment system called InControl. The new XE will make its global debut at the upcoming Paris motor show in October.
Designed and developed as a brand new system, InControl is based around an 8-inch touchscreen interface, and includes full smartphone integration for both iOS and Android units. It gets specially designed apps and the ability to function as a Wifi hotspot for multiple devices.
Another new feature is the InControl Remote. It allows users to connect to the car remotely and pre-set the heating/cooling system, locate the car in a car park, unlock the car, or even start the engine. The new InControl system also functions as a tracking device, displaying the vehicle's location should it be stolen. An industry first for the XE is laser projection for the head-up display, which shows speed and navigation information.
Powered by engines from Jaguar's new Ingenium range, the new XE will be available in three guises – the standard XE, XE S and XER-S.
