Date:6 March 2012 Tags:,

Today Jaguar revealed the company’s first estate car in 90 years, the Jaguar XF Sportbrake. Promised to be the most versatile Jaguar ever created, the Sportbrake is an estate version of the highly acclaimed XF and is set to rival the BMW 5-series Touring and Audi A6 Avant.

The XF Sportbrake has been created for a practical yet sporty ride, with a larger docking space and additional 48 mm of headroom for passengers in the back seat. Remote-fold levers allow the rear seats to be folded down with just one touch to provide an uninterrupted load surface that is 1 970 mm in length.

The XF Sportbrake firmly emphasises both the sustainable and sporting sides of its character through its powertrain choices. Exclusively fitted with Jaguar’s range of four-cylinder 2,2-litre and V6 3,0-litre diesel engines, the XF Sportbrake offers an exemplary combination of refinement, fuel economy, low emissions, plentiful power and refinement.

Basics of the new Jaguar XF Sportbrake include:
• New rear air suspension allows for self-levelling while load carrying with no dynamic penalty.
• Remote-fold levers drop the 60:40 split rear seats (with integral ski-hatch) to create up to 1 675 litres of load-space
• Fitted with Jaguar’s Intelligent Stop-Start system, making it the company’s most efficient powertrain to date
• Eight-speed automatic gearbox.
