Parkers overall rating: 4.5 out of 5 4.5

There's a multiude of systems fitted to improve Jaguar XKR-S Convertible safety. Most important is a rollover protection system that’ll do its best to protect occupants if the car ends up upside down. There’s an adaptive restraint technology system that pre-loads seatbelts and other safety systems if it thinks an accident is imminent. Front and side airbags for both driver and passenger, whiplash reduction, pedestrian safety, ISOFIX child seat fitting at the rear, dynamic stability control and active differential control, emergency brake assist and electronic brake distribution are all featured too.

The seats have a whiplash reduction system and although the car hasn’t been tested by Euro NCAP, the body should protect you well should the worst happen.

You can get a holdall in the boot and a couple of bags in the token rear seats but don’t expect to carry a lot of stuff if you are planning a weekend away. At the front there’s more than enough head- and legroom, and although the A-pillars are pretty sizeable they are not intrusive. Rear visibility isn’t great though, but obviously improves when you put the roof down.
