The 2010 Jaguar XF has a long list of standard safety equipment, which most reviews around the Web note. Edmunds reports that the gear includes anti-lock brakes, stability control, active front headrests, and side and curtain airbags. "The Supercharged adds a blind spot monitor to the list," they point out. Along with the aforementioned safety gear, Cars.com observes that "traction control and an electronic stability system" come standard on the 2010 Jaguar XF. For those interested in automatic cruise control, Cars.com states that the Jaguar XF features an "adaptive cruise control" system with the ability to "determine if a collision is imminent and alert the driver."
At this writing, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has not yet performed crash tests on the 2010 Jaguar XF. Neither has the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), an insurance industry-funded research group.
TheCarConnection.com will revisit the XF's safety rating when crash data becomes available.
The sole omission from the 2009 Jaguar XF's safety gear seems to be all-wheel drive. In its class, Edmunds says, the XF faces competitors like the Audi A6, BMW 5-Series, Infiniti M45, and Mercedes-Benz E-Class, most of which offer all-wheel drive, potentially "an advantage for those who have to deal with slippery weather conditions."
