The dashboard appears to be influenced by both the F-Type (dual binnacle instrument cluster) and the XJ (center console under the air vents) though, Jaguar did not talk about the design.

Instead, it placed the emphasis on the car's technology features including an all-new InControl infotainment system with 8-inch touchscreen and full smart-phone integration for both iOS and Android devices. The system also functions as a Wi-Fi hotspot for multiple devices.

Jaguar says it will offer a variety of apps allowing smart-phone users to control functions such as door looking and engine start "from anywhere in the world".

The XE will also debut a laser head-up display (HUD), which Jaguar claims, is an industry-first.

"Projecting sharp, high-contrast colour images onto the windscreen, the technology provides the driver with information such as speed and navigation instructions with maximum clarity and minimum distraction. As well as better image quality, the laser HUD is smaller and almost a third lighter than existing systems," said Jaguar in a statement.

I'm sure the interior will look great, but I am not super inspired from what I see in these photos. It all looks a little predictable in my opinion. I won't pass judgement till we can see the actual materials being used for the interior. What do you guys think?

what is it that make an interior unpredictable, would that be a lack of one? I certainly find it predictable that a vehicle should have a cockpit yes ;)

I'm curious about the voice control, Jaguar says it will be so flawless I wont even need my fingers. I'm not sure if I can quite believe that considering the precedent the rest of the industry has set for voice controls!

Why can't you believe that?
I think it's very possible, just a matter of programming. Although I haven yet to see or experience a system like that, it's sure seems doable. Just need to experience this system in full.

I just think that the center console and infotainment unit looks pretty square and simple. It's not like its revolutionary or anything. Like I said though, seeing the actual materials will bring it to life more.

But if it looking square and simple, there's not much material will do to improve that, as that is just with it's design and material won't change it's design, it will help a slight bit, but you're still stuck with the same thing.
