Scooped: F-Type interior

These are the clearest views yet of the F-Type interior.
  • Joystick gear selector replaces familar Jaguar rotary dial, manual option is unlikely
  • Large touchscreen dominates central aspect
  • Much has been carried over directly from the popular C-X16 concept
  • Steering wheel is also a chip off the C-X16 block

What can we deduce from these latest F-Type cabin pictures?

Well, the central dashboard stack is seen completely undisguised for the first time, showing marked differences to previous mules which simply contained hacked XJ consoles.

The production F-type's interior is dominated by a large central touchscreen for the infotainment and navigation systems, likely shared with other products in Jaguar Land Rover's range. The interface will operate the Meridian hi-fi seen fitted to the driver's door panel in these shots.

Underneath the screen we see three rotary heating and ventilation controls, the current popular arrangement for cilmate control, and preserved intact from the C-X16.

How about the driving contact points?

The F-type will shun Jaguar Land Rover's familiar rotary pop-up gear selector in favour of a BMW-style joystick control, with a Sport mode for manual ratio shifting clearly visible on the the selector face. Drivers will nudge the stick to the left for manual gear selection.

The mysterious toggle switch in front of the gear selector looks to be the same dynamic mode switch the C-X16 boasted, albeit relocated from the side of the centre console. A chequered flag emblem is just visible, suggesting this control will be in charge of slecting less assisted, more aggressive driving modes tailored for road or track, akin to Ferrari's famous steering wheel manettino switch. Make no mistake, the F-type is gunning for serious sports car status, rather than wafty old Jag territory.

Meanwhile, the dished steering wheel also looks to be a C-X16 carry-over item, showing a flat-bottomed design and suede-covered surface.
