2016 Jaguar XF Driver Assistance Features and Benefits

With its robust engine choices, responsive handing and quick acceleration, the 2016 Jaguar XF is a joy to drive. The new XF also comes with a multitude of driver assistance features, offering such benefits as convenience, making your driving experience smoother and more enjoyable and an increased level of safety.  

Autonomous Emergency Braking

With the XF’s available Autonomous Emergency Braking system, a forward facing camera watches for a potential collision. If one is detected, the vehicle gives an audible forward collision warning. Visual warnings in the Head-Up Display and instrument cluster are also displayed. If a collision is still anticipated and the driver takes no action, the system is designed to then apply the brakes to help reduce the severity of the possible impact.

Advanced Parking Aids

The Advanced Parking Aids make parking in tight spaces easier than ever. Sensors measure the space and, if suitable, will enable the XF to accurately steer itself during either parallel or perpendicular parking maneuvers – the driver retains control of the brakes and accelerator. For parallel spaces, an exit-assist function can help guide the XF out again.

Lane Keep Assist with Driver Conditioning Monitor

The available Lane Keep Assist with Driver Conditioning Monitor is designed to sense unintentional lane drift and to help steer the vehicle back into its lane. Also working to help keep you safe, DCM constantly analyses driving inputs to detect lapses in concentration due to tiredness. When the system determines that a potentially drowsy driver is at the wheel, it suggests taking a break via a notification in the instrument cluster and a slight shake of the steering wheel.

Traffic Sign Recognition with Intelligent Speed Limiter

The XF’s available  Traffic Sign Recognition technology uses a forward-facing camera to detect speed limit and no passing road signs, then displays them to the driver on the instrument panel. This system takes account of temporary speed limits. The Intelligent Speed Limiter, if activated, will use the signage information, alongside map data from the navigation system, to help keep XF under the appropriate speed limit.

In addition to the driver assistance systems, the 2016 Jaguar XF offers many other advanced technological features. This includes such things as the Meridian Sound System, InControl multimedia system and Head-Up Display system, which uses laser technology to  project a range of important information onto the windshield.
