2012 Jaguar XF: Simple Cruise
July 23, 2012
Our longterm Jaguar XF has a simple and effective cruise interface. It can be operated easily by feel alone, there's no silly adaptive nonsense, and best of all, there's no redundant, unnecessary, pointless "on/off" switch. That's correct, in this Jag you don't have to turn the cruise on before you turn it on -- if you want to set your speed, you rock the scrolly wheel thing upwards to "+" and your speed is set. Done. No power switch needed.
Other automakers, especially those that require the cruise be "powered on" every bloody time the key is cycled, take note.
