While the scores for pedestrian and safety assistance systems stand at 81% and 82% respectively.
Kevin Stride, Vehicle Line Director, Jaguar XE, XF, F-PACE 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."
“Everything from the aluminum 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.” Watch: Euro NCAP Crash Test of Jaguar XF 2015
