2012 Jaguar XF: Makes The Case For Knobs
November 15, 2012
Our longterm 2012 Jaguar XF's slow-responding, odd screen-flow-havin' touchscreen is a few generations behind the times and shows the confidence its designers/engineers had in the then-newish technology. The XF's interface would have benefited greatly from the addition of a knob or two.
Unfortunately, sometimes the ability to do something -- in this case, incorporate many cabin functions into a single touchscreen interface -- crowds out the decision of whether you should. I find myself saying this a lot about touchscreens in cars.
