The XJ has a 10.0in touchscreen infotainment system as standard, complete with sat-nav, Bluetooth connectivity and a DAB radio. Syncing a phone is easy, but there’s no Apple CarPlay or Android Auto; instead, you have to rely on Jaguar’s own smartphone integration solution, which is far more frustrating to use.
The system is not as polished or sophisticated as those fitted in any of its rivals. The graphics look a little dated, especially on the 12.3in fully digital instrument panel. Some of the icons are too small to hit on the move, too, and the system can be slow to respond.
You can download an app for your phone to remote start the car, send routes to the sat-nav to follow or check fuel levels.
