All New Jaguar F-Type Interior - Web Exclusive

The car’s driving position is 20mm lower than in the Jaguar XKR-S, dropping the center of gravity and allowing the driver to feel more connected to the car.

The F-Type’s asymmetric cabin layout reflects the focus on the driver. The aim was to create an enveloping cockpit for the driver, with all the controls placed to hand and logically grouped, allowing maximum attention on the driving experience.

A small-diameter, flat-bottom, three-spoke steering wheel comes as part of an optional performance pack. Numerals on the tachometer are larger and bolder than those on the speedometer, to enhance visibility when shifting. A TFT LCD screen between the two dials provides further information for the driver.

The controls are dual-purpose: in cars fitted with heated seats, pushing the left- or right-hand dial will control the temperature for each seat.

The switches are finished in soft-feel matte black with white markings for maximum legibility, and the highlight accents are deliberately understated satin chrome or dark aluminum. The two S models feature darker finishes than in the standard V6 F-Type.

Sports seats feature power recline and height adjustment with manual control of fore/aft movement to hwlp weight reduction. Available Performance seats can be ordered with additional side bolstering for greater support during high-force cornering. Both seats can also be optioned with full power adjustment, including adjustable lumbar and side support. The car’s driving position is 20mm lower than in the Jaguar XKR-S, dropping the center of gravity and allowing the driver to feel more connected to the car.

Two audio systems from premium British experts Meridian are available. They are offered in either 10- or 12-speaker layout with output of 380 or 770 watts, respectively. The top of the range is the Meridian Trifield System, which places both occupants at the center of their own perfectly focused sound field.
