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 seamless playback between devices in the home to the car – and back again – makes the new F-TYPE even more enjoyable to drive.
