This is arguably the weakest aspect of the I-pace’s entire cabin. While the integration of the twin screens into the upper and lower dash fascia has been executed very tidily indeed, the responsiveness of the software along with a lack of intuitiveness are ultimately the system’s undoing. There’s a noticeable degree of lag between input and response that might be acceptable on a more run-of-the-mill infotainment system but needs to be ironed out when applied to a vehicle costing in excess of £60,000.
These grumbles aside, the level of features that you get with the system is at least acceptable. DAB radio, Bluetooth connectivity, satellite navigation and a rear-view parking camera are all included as standard. That said, Jaguar doesn’t make specifying Apple Carplay or Android Auto compatibility an option, which seems like a missed opportunity owing to their superior intuitiveness.
Meridian sound systems are standard across the board, with an 825W surround sound system available as a £600 option.
