Moderate overlap front

Rating applies to 2002-08 models built after December 2001

Tested vehicle: 2002 Jaguar X-Type 3.0 4-door

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.

Driver restraints and dummy kinematics

Action shot taken during the frontal offset crash test.

The dummy's position in relation to the steering wheel and instrument panel after the crash test indicates that the driver's survival space was maintained well.

Loading of the head into the airbag is shown in this photo taken during the crash test.

Forces on the lower left leg were just high enough to indicate the possibility of injury.
