Jaguar X-Type 2002-08 models mfg. after Dec. 2001FRONTAL OFFSET TEST OVERALL EVALUATION: Good Structure/safety cage Injury measures Restraints/dummy kinematics Head/neck Chest Leg/foot, left Leg/foot, right Good Good Good Acceptable Good Good Important: Frontal crash test ratings can be compared only among vehicles of similar weight. Test details: The Jaguar X-Type was introduced in the 2002 model year. All 2002 and later X-Type models manufactured after December 2001 include structural modifications to improve occupant protection in frontal crashes (note: information about when a specific vehicle was manufactured is on the certification label typically affixed to the car on or near the driver door). The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has evaluated the crashworthiness of an X-Type with the structural changes in a 40 mph frontal offset crash test into a deformable barrier. Restraints/dummy kinematics — Dummy movement was well controlled. During rebound, the dummy's head hit the roof rail and A-pillar. Injury measures — Measures taken from the head, neck, chest and right leg indicate low risk of injuries to these body regions in a crash of this severity. Forces on the left tibia indicate that injuries to the lower leg would be possible. Head accelerations from the roof rail/A-pillar hits were low.
