*Due to lack of NHTSA and IIHS crash testing.

Since the XF has yet to be crash-tested, we’re unable to rate its safety. Buyers who want the latest safety and driver assists still have a satisfying selection of choices available as options.

Neither agency has yet crash-tested the 2018 XF. Instead, Jaguar jazzes up the sedan’s list of optional active-safety features, adding forward traffic detection and forward vehicle guidance. Both technologies integrate with the 360-degree camera system to identify low or incoming objects and notify the driver of a possible collision.

Crash Test Results

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the nonprofit, independent Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) evaluate vehicles for crashworthiness in the United States. NHTSA assigns cars an overall rating out of five stars. IIHS uses a different set of tests, grades cars on a scale of Good to Poor, and awards the vehicles that perform best across its tests with Top Safety Pick or Top Safety Pick+ honors, the latter of which requires that the subject’s automated forward-collision-braking system performs well.

Airbags, Child Seats, and Spare Tire Location

Installing a child seat in the XF was uncomplicated, with easy-to-access LATCH anchors and enough space to avoid front-seat interference. We did need extra support to create a level surface for the seat, though.

Active-Safety Features

The XF is available with many of the assists expected on cars of this caliber, but none of it is standard. Advanced features such as a 360-degree camera, adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist, and automated emergency braking either cost a princely sum or are reserved for the top R-Sport trim and S model. Exceptional technology such as semi-autonomous driving is available on rivals such as the Mercedes-Benz E-class and the Volvo S90, but not the Jaguar.
