" The award winning Jaguar XF is already established as the most dynamic saloon car in the business segment. With the addition of the Sportbrake, we’re adding space and usability to the existing fun-to-drive package. And with super clean Ingenium engines mated with all-weather traction, we have developed a car to appeal to customers who want an efficient premium estate with low ownership costs."

Introducing the new Jaguar XF Sportbrake

The new XF Sportbrake returns Jaguar to the premium estate segment with a compelling combination of design, driving dynamics and advanced technologies that make it the standout performer.
The XF Sportbrake sets new standards for practicality and convenience with user-friendly features and technologies that make every trip safer, smarter and more relaxed. Its combination of space and efficiency make the Sportbrake the perfect companion for customers with active lifestyles.
With a design that retains the distinctive curves of the saloon at the front, the new XF Sportbrake embodies Jaguar’s key design DNA and incorporates an eye-catching roofline, which sets it apart from the competition. Its sleek silhouette projects a dynamic and purposeful profile that transforms the amount of space available inside.

The interior provides spacious accommodation flooded with natural light from the full-length 1.6sq m panoramic roof. Rear occupants benefit from enhanced knee room and improved headroom, while the practical loadspace can accommodate 565 litres of luggage.
"As with the XF saloon, every line on the Sportbrake serves a clear purpose, creating a fast sweeping silhouette. This gives the car a sense of speed and a very dynamic appearance. As a result, I think it looks just as sporty as the saloon, if not more so."

The new XF Sportbrake builds on the success of the saloon and has all of the advanced all-wheel drive (AWD) technologies and aluminium-intensive architectures that have made the XF a multi-award winner. Jaguar Land Rover’s family of innovative Ingenium powertrains equips the Sportbrake with the latest engine technologies.

The suspension set-up has been specially calibrated to reflect the demands placed on premium lifestyle estate models. The stiff and lightweight set-up gives the spacious estate Jaguar’s signature dynamics: a sports car-inspired character with agile handling and dynamic responses. Self-levelling air sprung rear suspension is fitted as standard to ensure the XF Sportbrake maintains its composure, even when fully loaded.
Jaguar’s optional Configurable Dynamics system, enables drivers to fine-tune settings for the steering, transmission and throttle. With Adaptive Dynamics dampers fitted, customers can also tune the suspension settings for a personalised driving experience.
