New Jaguar XE to include strong connectivity and head-up display

The new Jaguar XE will be equipped with a wide range of state-of-the art in-car technologies, including a new touch screen system.

The new XE’s InControl infotainment system is designed around an 8-inch touchscreen. A clear, intuitive user interface gives quick, easy access to all features and functions, and voice control using plain speech means that drivers can keep their eyes on the road at all times.

Mike Bell, Jaguar’s global connected car director, said: “With the all-new XE we’re introducing an entire suite of cutting-edge driver aids and entertainment systems. Designed and developed from scratch, they will ensure that every journey you take is simpler, more relaxing, safer, and effortlessly enjoyable.”

Jaguar InControl Remote allows users of iOS and Android smartphones to connect to the car from wherever they are and control a range of vehicle functions. These include seven-day timed pre-setting of the XE’s climate control system, locking or unlocking the doors, or starting the engine.

The XE also functions as a Wi-Fi hotspot, enabling multiple devices to connect to the internet, with the vehicle antenna providing the best possible signal.

Projecting sharp, high-contrast colour images onto the windscreen, the laser head-up display provides the driver with information such as speed and navigation instructions with maximum clarity and minimum distraction. As well as better image quality, the laser HUD is smaller and almost a third lighter than existing systems.
