A focus on safety

XK Rhodium Silver

XK’s safety systems are designed to lessen the risk of an accident and to help protect occupants and other road users.


    Jaguar's unique and highly advanced Adaptive Restraint Technology System (ARTS™) can help to protect front seat occupants in the event of a collision. Within a fraction of a second, ARTS™ is designed to assess the severity of any impact and, using weight sensors in the front seats plus sensors to detect the seat position and the seat belt status, deploy the dual-stage airbag in the most appropriate way.


    The industry-leading Pedestrian Contact Sensing System™ and automatically deployable bonnet can also help protect those outside the car. The system is designed to raise the bonnet slightly if it detects contact with a pedestrian in order to help prevent their head from contacting hard points under the bonnet.


    The XK Convertible has its own array of safety features, including a highly advanced roll-over protection system. If the car's on-board sensors detect an impending roll-over, two massively strong hoops – normally hidden under the rear tonneau – are triggered and designed to be deployed and to lock behind the rear seats within 65 milliseconds.


    The XK features a number of safety systems designed to improve road-holding and stability:
    - Emergency Brake Assist (EBA)
    - Electronic Brake force Distribution (EBD)
    - Anti-lock Braking System (ABS)
    - Traction Control (through engine and brake intervention)
    - Dynamic Stability Control (DSC)


    Door locks on the XK are controlled remotely from the key fob, and each door can also be locked or double-locked with a button on the handle. In addition, the doors will lock automatically when the car reaches a pre-set speed, which can be chosen by the driver.  XK is also protected by an alarm and engine immobiliser. Approach XK after dark and simply press the key fob to switch on the approach illumination. The headlamps come on and XK welcomes you.  The headlamps also stay on after you leave the car to help you on your way.
