Road & Track



The Jaguar XF doesn't have a backstop of federal or industry crash-test data to confirm its safety, but new features bring it a bit closer to the standards being raised all the time by the likes of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class and Lexus GS.

The XF has six standard airbags to go with its anti-lock brakes, stability control, and active front headrests. Some electronic assistants are available--rear parking sensors are standard, and front sensors are optional on base versions and standard on more expensive models. A rearview camera is an option on most models, and given the XF's narrow window of visibility to the rear, we think it should be standard.  Supercharged and XFR models get blind-spot monitors, another great feature in a car with limited visibility, while adaptive cruise control with a collision warning system is an option on all versions.

All-wheel drive is at long last available, though only on the XF equipped with Jaguar's new 340-hp, supercharged V-6.

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.

Conclusion

No crash-test data is available, but the XF now offers blind-spot monitors--though a rearview camera's an option on most models.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
