My biggest gripe with Jags though is the rather generic interior, that really isn't up to the game visually; They need to totally reinvent their interiors, and yes, bring back some wood and real metal, though in a modern treatment way. That piano black, carbon fiber etc dark theme might work for the Germans (and even tehre I find it depressing), but a Jag should be more interesting inside....

For me the line is either ugly as sin (XJ) or generic (the rest). The F Type stands out. I agree with you about the interiors. Senility has reached Callum and no one has guts to fire him.

I prefer Jaguar's generic yet clean interior, than German's pseudo-design interior with "quality gaps īnī cracks" everywhere.

My main problem is, that compared to earlier times, the modern jaguar interiors look too German for me.

Actually, you prefer just to be contrary.

If you say so, at least it works for me, in a world where every person tries to be different and ends up being the same.

When I saw the concept in the metal it did look more of an BMW X4 or Audi A4 sportsback (raised) rather than a Discovery Sport competitor. Its virtually the same size as an (2018/19) X4 but with interior space of an X5

I agree with most here regarding Jaguar interiors of late. Again glimpses of the I-Pace production interior look as if Jaguar has taken the criticism on board. As a lot of the interior comes from the Range Rover Velar I have high hopes of something quite luxurious & special

The production car is being shown to deposit placers over the next couple of weeks prior to the launch on the 1st March - so it will be interesting to see if they are able to keep a lid on it until then
