JAGUAR XE AND ALL-NEW XF ACHIEVE FIVE-STAR EURO NCAP SCORES

Euro NCAP has announced its latest crash safety results, which saw the Jaguar XE and XF scoop five stars.

XE and XF scored highly in every category - Adult Occupant, Child Occupant, Pedestrian and Safety Assist - and are among the most highly rated models in their segments.

Both models offer a full suite of active safety technologies and advanced driver assistance systems* including Dynamic Stability Control, Electronic Traction Control, Emergency Brake Assist, Lane Departure Warning, Blind Spot Monitor, Closing Vehicle Sensing, Reverse Traffic Detection, Traffic Sign Recognition and Adaptive Cruise Control. Additional features offered in the XF - and which will be offered in the 2017 Model Year XE - include Lane Keep Assist, Driver Condition Monitor and Adaptive Speed Limiter.

Jaguar XE and XF’s Vehicle Line Director, Kevin Stride said, "The XE and XF were engineered without compromise: we placed just as much focus on safety as we did on dynamics, performance, refinement and efficiency, and our stringent in-house standards far exceed the requirements of legislative and consumer tests.” He continued, "Everything from the aluminium alloys we developed for the body structures to the state-of-the-art stereo camera at the heart of the Autonomous Emergency Braking system has been painstakingly optimised to deliver world-class levels of safety."

*The features described above may be optional and market dependent.
