2012 Jaguar XF: Sleek Center Console

July 17, 2012


It's hard to get over the gimmicky nature of the XF's rising transmission dial. Then again, whenever I look at the overall design of the center console in our Jaguar I can't help but notice that its actually a sleek, simple design that works. 

It puts everything you need right at your fingertips -- the start button, the shifter, the "sport" button (that would be the checkered flag one) and the brake release. Why they bothered to waste space on the "speed warning button" is a mystery, but everything else is in a good spot. 

Heck, it even looks all nice and symetrical. Can't say the same for most of the setups out there these days.
