Sight lines are terrible in the XK Convertible with the top up
CNet

The 2014 Jaguar XK hasn't been rated by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) or National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), and not just because it's so new--many small-volume, expensive luxury vehicles are skipped.

Nevertheless, the XK continues forward with the same safety equipment it has had for the last several years, including standard dual front and side airbags, though curtain airbags don't make the list because of the convertible. Anti-lock brakes, stability control, and traction control are also standard, with sport settings that allow for more slip and yaw.

A rearview camera was added as a standard item last year, joining front and rear parking sensors as compulsory equipment. The camera significantly improves rearward visibility, which can be limited at times due to the small glass height and low roof. Convertibles get standard pop-up roll bars that deploy when the safety systems sense a rollover is imminent.

Optional safety equipment includes adaptive headlights and active cruise control.

Based on the strength of the 2014 Jaguar XK's standard safety equipment, as well as its bonded-aluminum, aerospace-style construction, we have given the car a tentative safety score of 9.

 

Conclusion

The XK hasn't been crash tested, but its high-tech build and standard safety features give it promise.

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.
