Last Updated On: 18/08/2020
The latest Jaguar XF Sportbrake delivers all the performance features of the XF and dramatic coupé styling, with all the space of an estate. It combines performance and drivability, refinement and effortless power with a spacious load capacity.
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. 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.
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.
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.
Measuring 4,955mm, the new Sportbrake is 6mm shorter than the previous model, but its wheelbase has been lengthened by 51mm to 2,960mm. This optimises rear legroom and load space and contributes to the vehicle’s refined ride quality.
Jaguar Land Rover’s range of advanced four and six-cylinder petrol and diesel engines provides customary Jaguar performance, efficiency and towing capacity. The range starts with a rear-wheel drive 163PS Ingenium diesel with variable geometry turbocharging that drives like a true Jaguar and provides exceptional efficiency. The advanced powerplant delivers CO2 emissions of just 118g/km with fuel efficiency of 62.8mpg (4.5 l/100km).
At the other end of the performance spectrum, customers can choose the 380PS supercharged V6 petrol engine**. Paired with a ZF eight-speed automatic transmission and Jaguar’s advanced all-wheel drive system, this combination provides sports car performance with the sprint from 0-62mph (100km/h) completed in 5.5 seconds.
A full suite of driver assistance and safety systems is provided, bolstered by Jaguar’s Driver Condition Monitor which examines a range of inputs to detect signs of drowsiness and warn drivers when they need to take a break.
The Sportbrake is available in five model variations: Prestige, Portfolio, R-Sport, Chequered Flag and S.
