Speaking about the advanced Land Rover InControl Touch Pro infotainment system, it gets a large 10.2-inch touchscreen and intuitive menus, replicating the look and feel of smartphone apps and allowing users to swipe and pinch, just as they would on a tablet. The screen does not require any 'hard' buttons and provides a super-wide 21:9 high resolution screen format.

Land Rover has intoduced a trio of new driver assistance systems: Driver Condition Monitor, Intelligent Speed Limiter, and Lane Keep Assist. The 'Driver Condition Monitor' feature, using an algorithm which continuously monitors driver inputs looking for signs of fatigue, alerts the driver via visual and audible warnings if it detects signs of driver drowsiness. The 'Intelligent Speed Limiter' help drivers to keep to the speed limit. The system takes advantage of the Traffic Sign Recognition feature to detect changes to the prevailing speed limit. The 'Lane Keep Assist' uses the forward-facing camera on the vehicle to detect lane markings. If the driver begins to veer out of their lane without indicating, the vehicle is designed to gently counter-steer to ensure it does not leave its lane unintentionally.
