Its the path of least resistance for Jaguar. Being at a point where they still have to establish their bread and butter of the brand, keeping things simple and streamlined is the way to go. All i'd care to see are subtle differences, not too much to ask for.
I agree. I'll be perfectly content if it's very similar, which it should be, to the F-Pace interior and what they currently have going on. A dial shifter would be good enough for me, I don't mind at all. That infotainment screen at such a large angle is throwing me off, but upon closer inspection, I'm not even sure if that's a screen or just a piece of plastic.
Looking at it again, I doubt it'll be a dial shifter with how far back the shift stick is from where the dial is located on the F-Pace. We can look forward to a similar center stack layout with a larger storage cubby for your phone.
If Jaguar is really set on adding the wireless charging cubby, they should make it the side of a notepad. Phones are getting progressively larger and a person's phone may not fit in there to utilize the feature.
