There aren't any U.S.-market crash tests for the 2014 Jaguar XF. And while it doesn't offer the kind of advanced accident avoidance features you'll find in rivals like the BMW 5-Series and Mercedes-Benz E-Class, all the protection basics are here.The XF's standard safety set includes six standard airbags to go with its anti-lock brakes, stability control, and active front headrests. Rear parking sensors are standard, and front sensors are optional on base versions and standard on more expensive models. 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.
A rearview camera is an option on most models, and given the XF's narrow window of rearward visibility, it should be included as standard.
Jaguar is offering all-wheel drive now, on models equipped with the 340-hp supercharged V-6. Jaguar is noting that this system is oriented toward safety and traction, rather than all-out performance.
Although there aren't any U.S. test results for the XF, it's earned a decent four-star rating in rigorous European crash tests.
