For those of you who don’t know, NHTSA is an agency that conducts various (crash) tests, to determine the safety of the car, and scores them on certain parameters. For some reason, none of the model years of the F-Pace has been crash-tested by NHTSA yet since its launch. As for the competition, the 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class managed to score a perfect 5 out of 5 stars with 5 stars in almost all the individual tests except the rollover test where it managed to score 4 out of 5 stars. The same is the case with the 2021 Audi Q5 and the 2021 BMW X3 as well. Hence, the 2021 F-Pace is up against some tough competition when it comes to the safety of the car. But as of now, it is difficult to judge the safety quotient of the 2021 F-Pace and compare it with its competitors due to the lack of NHTSA test reports.

The 2021 Jaguar F-Pace is set to get some nice improvements and updates over the previous model. The 2021 F-Pace is basically a facelift of the previous model with new design elements and styling tweaks, both inside and out. At the price it comes at, it will face competition from the likes of the Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class, the Audi Q5 and the BMW X3. 

As far as safety features are concerned, the 2021 Jaguar F Pace R Dynamic is expected to carry forward features from the last model year. Jaguars are known for their strong built and robust nature, which is accompanied by a vast collection of safety features. Let’s take a closer look. 

2021 Jaguar F-Pace R-Dynamic S 400: Safety

Just like the older models, the new 2021 F-Pace is also based on the same JLR D7a platform. This platform was developed as a Premium Lightweight Architecture (PLA) aluminum platform for larger vehicles. Although the new 2021 F-Pace is expected to get some improvements with regards to the available safety tech and features in the car, there aren’t any official details regarding that from the company yet. That being said, the previous model was well equipped with most of the modern advanced safety features and driving aids to keep the occupants as safe as possible. Hence, the 2021 F-Pace could be expected to be similarly safe, if not safer.

Some of the expected standard safety features expected for the 2021 F-PACE R-Dynamic S 400 should include:

  • Emergency braking
  • Lane Keep Assist and Driver Condition Monitor
  • Front and Rear parking aid
  • Rear camera
  • Park Assist
  • 360-degree parking aid
  • Rear Traffic Monitor
  • Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop and Go and Steering Assist
  • Blind Spot Assist
  • High-Speed Emergency Braking
  • Clear Exit Monitor
  • ClearSight Plan View

What features make the 2021 Jaguar F-Pace R-Dynamic S 400 safe? 

Although the official details about the safety features and driving aid on-board the 2021 F-Pace R-Dynamic S 400 has not been shared by the company yet, we could still expect it to have some of these advanced safety features onboard, either as standard or as an option:

  • Emergency Braking: When a potential collision is detected, the F-Pace gives an audible forward collision warning. Visual warnings follow. If the driver takes no action, the system applies the brakes to help reduce the severity of the possible impact. The system also includes pedestrian sensing.

  • Lane Keep Assist and Driver Condition Monitor: Lane Keep Assist detects when your vehicle is unintentionally drifting out of your lane and applies a corrective torque to the steering wheel, encouraging you to guide your vehicle back. Driver Condition Monitor detects if the driver is starting to feel drowsy by monitoring steering inputs and brake and throttle pedal activity to give you an early warning when you need to take a break.

  • Rear Traffic Monitor: It is particularly useful when reversing out of a perpendicular parking spot. The system warns you of vehicles, pedestrians, or other hazards approaching from another side of your vehicle.

  • Blind Spot Assist: It can help you prevent foreseeable collisions. If a vehicle is detected in your blind spot when you begin to change lanes, a small warning light illuminates in the corresponding side mirror. Corrective torque is also applied to the steering wheel, encouraging you to guide yourself away from the approaching vehicle.

  • High-Speed Emergency Braking: It detects when a potential frontal collision with another vehicle may occur and displays a forward alert to warn the driver to brake. If the driver does not react, the car will deploy the brakes to reduce the severity of the possible impact.

  • Adaptive Cruise Control with Steering Assist: It makes highway driving and heavy traffic situations easier and more comfortable. It achieves this by gently assisting steering, acceleration, and braking to center the vehicle in the lane while maintaining a set distance from vehicles ahead.

  • Front and Rear Parking Aid: It makes maneuvering easier with the help of sensors in the front and rear bumpers which are activated manually or when reverse is selected. As you park, the display and audio feedback indicate how close you are to obstacles.

Is the 2021 Jaguar F-Pace R-Dynamic S 400 safe enough?

It is quite early to comment about the safety quotient of the new F-Pace as it has not been tested by NHTSA and IIHS yet. Nonetheless, the SUV can be packed to the brim with most of the modern advanced safety features and driving aids to keep the occupants as safe as possible. It is up against some of the most capable SUVs in the market in terms of safety that performed pretty well in both the NHTSA and IIHS’ crash tests, and the F-Pace shouldn’t disappoint in that regard as well. Jaguar is expected to uphold the safety of its occupants and well its reputation in terms of the safety of its cars well.

2021 Audi

Pros - Seats are power-adjustable, space, storage cubbies, SiriusXM.

Cons - Gas guzzling V8, costly options.

One of the most reliable options. My RSQ8 is the best when it comes to the power but the way it delivers it is smooth and comfortable with easy to drive. The handling is good and it moves effortlessly in traffic as well in congested spaces. The infotainment screen is big, bright, and responsive. The interior is good. It is Spacious and airy. Seats are comfortable, and it has a number of good features as standard. Bulky styling The brakes work fantastically, which I feel makes me feel safer, rather than trying to rely on airbags, and belts. Excels in almost all conditions. Got a good deal so I? happy with what I paid. good team of staff
