This multi-layered virtual display has been remodeled and combines a new design and graphical interface, adding advanced functionality to ensure that the right settings are selected. The Instrument Panel Display is fully integrated with the 20.32 cm Touch-screen to put all information behind the wheel or on the centre console.
The front seats feature fine-tuned electric adjustment and 5 different massage programmes. The rear features airline-style reclining seats complete with 3 massage programmes and memory. They can be programmed to return to an upright position when the door is opened and a ‘front passenger seat away’ function allows rear occupants to move the empty front passenger seat forward to increase legroom and aid access.
The rear cabin is further enhanced with individual 25.90 cm HD screens for the rear passenger. The centre armrest houses the multimedia remote and front and rear seat controls, as well as providing useful storage. Folding business tables, LED reading lights, drop-in footrests and electric side rear window blinds are also available to add comfort, convenience and privacy.
The 2016 XJ gets All Surface Progress Control (ASPC) technology which is a low speed cruise control that helps the car to cope with low traction situations. ASPC allows one to concentrate on steering the vehicle and when activated, one can use the cruise control buttons to set a ‘target’ speed between 3.6 km/h and 30 km/h. The system then works to achieve and maintain that speed while exerting optimum traction control.
The InControl Touch Pro enhances entertainment to the very highest level. The 20.32 cm Touch-screen at the heart of the centre console is large and highly-responsive with a customizable home screen and lightning fast response time. Pinpoint touch control allows one to manipulate and interact with information swiftly and seamlessly. The Touch-screen responds in the same manner as a smartphone or tablet computer, providing multi-touch gestures such as pinch, zoom and swipe.
