21MY electronic handbook now available

Post by Cabby » Thu Nov 19, 2020 8:10 pm

I can't see this has been mentioned but over the past couple of days Jaguar have updated the handbook to show details for the 2021 MY. There aren't too many changes, but I wanted to see more about Pivi Pro and the surround cameras and this is covered at a relatively high level.

You'll find it here:

Most disappointing thing is that the stupid choke cable back seat releasers are still in the boot! If they can fit a proper seat back release in the middle, why not for the other two?

They're the worst thing about the car. Even my wife's Skoda Citigo has better.

No, the worst thing about the car is that fold down rear seats are an option that I didnt specify in my otherwise perfect build HSE. I just assumed they would come with it, as my last one had them...

But yes the choke pull arrangement is ridiculous. I had it in my (previous gen) XF's, I would have to essentially kneel inside the boot and push the back of the seat with one hand while pulling the choke on the other

Fold down split rear seats now standard in 2021 spec.
You pay extra for heated split rear seats but who pays for that luxury?!

I got them for mine, and Mum and Dad really appreciated them last winter! :D

This winter, we might not be able to take them out anywhere, even though they are pretty fit for 85+ year olds... :cry:

Stay safe out there, folks!

Anyone know whether my spare wheel and boot floor etc would fit in the new model?

The spare wheel will fit but they have changed the position of the battery on the MY20 and it's now right at the back. They have added a bracket which fits underneath the wheel. The locking bolt and collar which hold the spare in place, screws into the bracket. There are some pics in this post: viewtopic.php?f=22&t=3049&hilit=spacesaver&start=50
Don't know if the floor is the same though.

The boot floor on the MY20 has a moulded-in raised section over the spare wheel, which now apparently sits a bit higher than the one on previous model years. I don't know why JLR moved the battery to the rear and added the bracket, as this is what seems to raise the spare wheel. There is also now a lot of space wasted ahead of the battery - although I have used this to stash a warning triangle, a wooden block (for spreading the load under the jack) and some old rags for use if/when I need to change a wheel.
