Incon­trol Touch Stan­dard Key fea­tures: Wi-fi, DAB, Blue­tooth

ALL ver­sions of the F-pace fea­ture the brand’s lat­est Incon­trol Touch Nav­i­ga­tion, which is con­trolled via an eight-inch touch­screen. The graph­ics aren’t as crisp as the Audi’s, but the set-up is re­spon­sive and the four-way home screen gives you quick ac­cess to the nav, au­dio, phone and cli­mate con­trol func­tions. Pro­gram­ming a des­ti­na­tion is easy, and the 3D map­ping is clear.

The set-up is packed with fea­tures, in­clud­ing the Incon­trol Apps ser­vice, which uses your smart­phone to con­nect you to ser­vices such as Spo­tify, park­ing apps and var­i­ous In­ter­net ra­dio sta­tions. Also in­cluded is In­con­nect Wi-fi. This re­quires a sub­scrip­tion, although it turns your car into a 4G hotspot.

Up­grade to the £1,780 Nav­i­ga­tion Pro pack­age and you get a larger 12. 2-inch screen, plus a sim­i­lar-sized TFT dis­play ahead of the driver that re­places the tra­di­tional dials. Also in­cluded is a 380W Merid­ian sound sys­tem, which can be or­dered on its own for £680. FOR & AGAINST
