For enhanced safety, the front and rear seat shoulder belts of the Jaguar XF are height-adjustable to accommodate a wide variety of driver and passenger heights. A better fit can prevent injuries and the increased comfort also encourages passengers to buckle up. The Cadillac CTS-V has only front height-adjustable seat belts.

The XF has standard whiplash protection, which use a specially designed headrest to protect the driver and front passenger from whiplash. During a rear-end collision, the whiplash protection system moves the headrests forward to prevent neck and spine injuries. The CTS-V doesn’t offer a whiplash protection system.

The XF has standard parking sensors to help warn the driver about vehicles, pedestrians or other obstacles behind or, optionally, in front of the vehicle. The CTS-V doesn’t offer a front parking aid.

The XF’s optional blind spot warning system uses rear-aimed sensors monitored by computer to alert the driver to moving objects in the vehicle’s blind spots where the side view mirrors don’t reveal them. The CTS-V doesn’t offer a system to reveal objects in the driver's blind spots.

Both the XF and the CTS-V have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, front side-impact airbags, head airbags, front seatbelt pretensioners, height adjustable front shoulder belts, four wheel antilock brakes, traction control and electronic stability systems to prevent skidding.

The XFR’s 255/35R20 front and 285/30R20 rear tires provide better handling because they have a lower 35 series front and 30 series rear profile (height to width ratio) that provides a stiffer sidewall than the CTS-V’s 40 series front and 35 series rear tires.

For better ride, handling and brake cooling the XF offers optional 20 inch wheels. The CTS-V’s largest wheels are only 19 inches.

Changing a flat tire near traffic can be dangerous and inconvenient. The run-flat tires available on the XF can be driven up to 50 miles without any air pressure, allowing you to drive to a service station for a repair. The CTS-V doesn’t offer run-flat tires.

The XF has a standard space-saver spare tire so you can replace a flat tire and drive to have the flat repaired or replaced. A spare tire isn’t available on the CTS-V, it requires you to depend on roadside assistance and your vehicle will have to be towed.

The Jaguar XF may be more efficient, handle and accelerate better because it weighs up to about 200 pounds less than the Cadillac CTS-V.

The design of the Jaguar XF amounts to more than styling. The XF has an aerodynamic coefficient of drag of .29 Cd. That is significantly lower than the CTS-V (.355) and many sports cars. A more efficient exterior helps keep the interior quieter and helps the XF get better fuel mileage.

As tested by Road & Track, the interior of the XFR is quieter than the CTS-V:

The XF’s front and rear power windows all open or close with one touch of the switches, making it more convenient at drive-up windows and toll booths, or when talking with someone outside of the car. The CTS-V’s rear power window switches have to be held the entire time to close them fully.

If the windows are left down on the XF the driver can raise them all using the key in the outside lock cylinder. On a hot day the driver can lower the windows from outside the vehicle using the key in the outside lock cylinder or the keyless remote. The driver of the CTS-V can only operate the windows from inside the vehicle, with the ignition on.

The XF has a standard locking fuel door with a remote release located convenient to the driver. A locking fuel door helps prevent vandalism, such as sugar in the tank and fuel theft. The CTS-V doesn’t offer a locking fuel door.

The XF’s rain-sensitive wipers adjust their speed and turn on and off automatically based on the amount of rainfall on the windshield. This allows the driver to concentrate on driving without constantly adjusting the wipers. The CTS-V’s standard manually variable intermittent wipers have to be constantly adjusted.

A power rear sun shade is optional in the XF to help block heat and glare for the rear passengers. The CTS-V doesn’t offer a rear sun shade.

The XF has standard automatic dimming rear and side view mirrors which automatically darken quickly when headlights shine on them, keeping following vehicles from blinding or distracting the driver. The CTS-V has an automatic rear view mirror, but its side mirrors don’t dim.

To keep a safe, consistent following distance, the XF offers an optional Adaptive Cruise Control, which alters the speed of the vehicle without driver intervention. This allows the driver to use cruise control more safely without constantly having to disengage it when approaching slower traffic. The CTS-V doesn’t offer an adaptive cruise control.
