New Jaguar cars are much more advanced than the classic Jaguar models of yesteryear. We’ve come a long way from the time when power windows, air conditioning, and even seat belts were standard equipment. These days, the options available are far more advanced. While purists might raise an eyebrow, Jaguar Peabody serves drivers who love the fact that Jaguar InControl does so much to enhance their drive.

Jaguar InControl and InControl Plus are infotainment systems. They combine information — maps, navigation, points of interest, and even diagnostics* — with your favorite music and satellite radio (there’s your entertainment). All of it is conveniently accessible through a high-resolution touchscreen that’s within easy reach of the driver.

When they’re done right, infotainment systems shouldn’t detract from their drive, or drive you to distraction. They should be unobtrusive, intuitive, easy to use, and should not distract the driver. Jaguar InTouch succeeds on all counts.

So what does it do? Well, we’re glad you asked. You can use InControl to receive and make hands-free calls, access your favorite media, control climate, and tweak key settings, all without taking your attention away from the drive. You’d think that would be an easy thing to do, but we’ve seen enough manufacturers get it wrong to really appreciate it when one hits the mark as decisively as the Jaguar brand has.

Of course, the only way to find out whether Jaguar InControl — or a new Jaguar vehicle like the 2017 Jaguar F-PACE — is right for you is to get yourself to Jaguar Peabody. We’re located at 247 Newubury St. in Peabody and we’d love to show you all the best of what the company has to offer.
