The XK offers you and your passengers a range of advanced safety systems.

Adaptive Restraint Technology System (ARTSTM)

The Jaguar Adaptive Restraint Technology System (ARTS™) features intelligent sensors that are designed to assess the severity of an impact. These sensors calculate driver and passenger weight, seat position and seatbelt status in order to deploy the dual stage airbags in the most effective manner.6


Convertible models feature a rollover protection system. On-board sensors are designed to detect an impending rollover, and deploy two concealed protection bars within 65 milliseconds that spring up from behind the rear seats to lock into place.4

  1. Advanced Braking

    Anti-lock brakes on the XK vary the brake pressure during an emergency stop to help prevent the wheels from locking and to help maintain steering control. Emergency Brake Assist (EBA) offers further reassurance. This system is designed to apply increased braking pressure in the event of sudden application of the brake pedal.

  2. Enhanced Security

    All models feature central locking, an alarm and engine immobilizer. Door locks can be controlled either remotely from your key fob, or by using the button on the door handle with the standard Jaguar Smart Key System™ with Keyless Entry. At night the key fob can also be used to activate the headlights as you approach the car. As an additional security feature, the doors will lock automatically when the car reaches a pre-set speed chosen by the driver. The door mirrors can be set to automatically fold when the vehicle is locked, giving you a quick visual indication your car is secure.

  3. Protective Body Shell

    The XK body and chassis, whether Coupe or Convertible, is engineered for both performance and safety. This reinforced structure incorporates light-yet-strong aluminum alloys to enhance the structural rigidity of the passenger cabin and help reduce intrusion upon impact.

  4. Tire Pressure Monitoring System

    Correct tire pressure is vital to your car's efficiency and handling. The Tire Pressure Monitoring System in the XK can help you maintain your tires correctly. It issues an automatic alert if the pressure in any of your tires falls below a certain threshold.
