2011 Jaguar XK Safety

9.0
On Safety

Neither of the major crash-testing agencies has rated the 2011 Jaguar XK, in either coupe or convertible form.

Both the NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) and the IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety) have each changed their rating criteria for the new model year, and many vehicles are on the to-do list. However, neither group had crashed the XK before the standards changed either--so we're assigning a relatively high safety score to the XK based on its long list of safety features and the inherent strength of its bonded-aluminum body. 

No crash-test scores have surfaced, but the 2011 Jaguar XK has reassuring safety features and a strongly built body.

We'll update our ratings when more data is available.

In every XK, you'll find dual front and side airbags, along with anti-lock brakes, as well as traction and stability control. Also standard are front and rear parking sensors--but a rearview camera isn't offered, and the XK lacks side curtain airbags since it's frequently cut down into Convertible form.

Options include active cruise control and adaptive headlights.
