The new #Jaguar #ftype is a true driver-focused sports car that offers reward and engagement like no other. A new embedded #spotify app enhances the driving experience further, giving Premium #spotify subscribers instant, on-demand access to a growing library of more than 50 million tracks and more than 700 thousand podcasts.

Developed with #spotify, the new app is integrated within the fast, intuitive Touch Pro infotainment system so customers can enjoy their favourite playlists without connecting their phone. And through the #spotify Connect feature, playback can resume seamlessly from any other device when customers get into their car.

Alan Volkaerts, Vehicle Line Director, #Jaguar F-TYPE, said: “Our customers expect the latest infotainment and connectivity technology, and the new F-TYPE’s embedded #spotify app has been developed to offer them exactly that.

“Our engineers have worked closely with #spotify to integrate this app into the Touch Pro infotainment system, and as a result our customers can have access to a huge library of music without needing to connect their phones. And the #seamlessplayback between devices in the home to the car – and back again – makes the new #ftype even more enjoyable to drive.”

The new #ftype features a wealth of other driver-focused technologies, including a reconfigurable, high-definition, 12.3-inch TFT instrument cluster and Smartphone Pack with Apple CarPlay® as standard. Smartphone Pack also includes Android Auto™and Baidu CarLife, depending on market applicability, as standard. The two superb Meridian audio systems – including a surround sound system with 12 speakers including two subwoofers – offer enhanced sound reproduction. SOTA functionality means future software updates can be made to the Touch Pro infotainment system at the customer’s convenience without having to visit a Retailer.

The new #ftype is the first #Jaguar model to feature the embedded #spotify app, which is also backward-compatible with existing #Jaguar models equipped with the Touch Pro infotainment, Online Media feature and software-over-the-air (SOTA) functionality. Installing it is easy: Via a micro-SIM card in the vehicle or through a Wi-Fi connection, customers can, in three simple steps, download the app and update the online media sources with #spotify.

The new #Jaguar #ftype is available to order now at #Jaguar.com, priced from £54,060 in the UK.
