Neither the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) nor the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has crash-tested the Jaguar XF, which makes judging its safety more difficult. We're giving credit here to its extensive set of safety features, with a nod to the four-star rating it earned in similar European crash tests.
Six airbags are standard in the XF, along with anti-lock brakes and stability control, active front headrests, and electronic assistants like a rearview camera. Supercharged and XFR models get a blind-spot monitor, and adaptive cruise control with a collision warning system is available.
Unlike other sedans in its class, the XF doesn't offer an all-wheel-drive option, which in some climates could be considered a vital safety feature for less experienced drivers.
