SPIED: Jaguar Revisits Station Wagon Territory with New XF Sportbrake

The last time Jaguar offered a station wagon model was with the ill-fated X-Type Sportwagon, which was produced from 2004 to 2009. But Jaguar is getting ready to give it another try, this time with an estate model based on the mid-size XF, with which it will go against the BMW 5-Series Touring and the Audi A6 Avant.

Oddly, Jaguar wants us to know about the car that will be named XF Sportbrake well before its release and has already set up a dedicated Twitter account where it published these two “spy” photos of the estate with half its body covered in swirly camo.

The pictures reveal a faintly sloping roofline with a spoiler attached at the rear, while it appears that the XF Sportbrake may also get a wraparound rear windshield. And for those of you wondering, the prototype was fitted with fake add-on tail lamps.

The more practical version of the British firm’s premium XF series will carry the same exact engine lineup as the saloon ranging from the frugal 190HP 2.2-liter turbodiesel all the way up to a 510HP supercharged V8 petrol for the range-topping XF-R model, which was recently confirmed by Jaguar’s chief designer, Ian Callum.

Look for the introduction of the new XF Sportbrake at a major international motor show next year.
