You sit low in nice race-inspired seats that keep you in place no matter how hard you push this Jag. The grained leather and suede cloth that covers the seats have a fine premium feel; as do the other materials used within the cabin. As far as creature comforts are concerned, the key elements include the Meridian Sound System, InControl Apps, Rearview Camera, Front and Rear parking aid an air quality sensor.
