No variant of the Jaguar XE has been crashed by the IIHS or the NHTSA, and with such a limited run of models, it is unlikely that this version will be the first to be willfully smashed.
NHTSA safety ratings are not available at this time.
As standard, the Project 8 shares some safety features with its lesser brethren, including airbags (frontal, side-impact, rear head airbags) and a rearview camera. Other features include parking sensors and automatic high beams. Optionally available too is an adaptive cruise control system with traffic-sign recognition and a head-up display. Forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking is also an available feature.

The 2019 Jaguar XE range as a whole has been unaffected by recalls, but it may be worth noting that the 2018 model suffered two recalls. One was in late October of 2017 for an instrument cluster that would go blank and another was in February 2018 for a fuel leak in the engine compartment.
In terms of warranty, all new Jaguar models come with five years/60,000 miles of limited coverage, as well as complimentary scheduled maintenance, roadside assistance, and powertrain coverage for the same period.
