The wagon's shape was drawn on a large scale at Wimbledon.
We don’t need a crystal ball to figure out how the new XF Sportbrake is going to look, but nevertheless it’s nice that Jaguar has decided to drop a teaser of its upcoming wagon. The sedan is already a nice car to begin with, so its long-roof counterpart showing here its massive panoramic glass top should prove to be even more appealing for many people, us included. And since the company has made it clear an XE Sportbrake won’t happen, this will be the only wagon in Jag’s lineup.
Set to go up against the Audi A6, BMW 5 Series, and Mercedes E-Class estates, the new XF Sportbrake will likely mirror the engine lineup of its sedan sibling. As one would expect from a wagon, the ace up its sleeve will be a bigger trunk making it a better companion on extended journeys. Headroom for passengers sitting in the back might improve a little bit as a result of the modified roofline.
The more family-friendly XF will likely swallow more cargo than its predecessor, which was able to carry 550 litres with the rear seats in place and1,675 litres after folding them down.
Jaguar says it will have the XF Sportbrake on sale in Europe this summer, so a full reveal is expected to take place in the coming weeks. We already know it will be available in North America as well and will certainly command a premium over the sedan available right now from $60,000 MSRP in the entry-level trim.
