Jaguar InControl Touch in-car infotainment review

From the outset, the InControl system appears bright and sleek, but it's held back by sluggish responses to operator inputs

The Jaguar InControl infotainment system looks good with its big screen, and is easy enough to view, but it is a slight case of style over substance.

The home screen is very clear, and features four main options, yet some  of the layout choices seem less than logical – such as the provision of a small button with squares on for the satellite navigation settings.

On the whole the system is very usable, but it can be slow to respond to inputs. When we tested it we found that the volume would change seconds after we twisted the dial. However, this is weighed up against the cost, which is reasonable. The standard model gives you an eight-inch touchscreen, navigation and DAB.
