Jaguar Wagons May Coexist With Jaguar Crossovers After All

It turns out the eulogy for Jaguar wagons, or Sportbrakes, was premature. Thank the car gods.

In a tweet Tuesday, Jaguar Director of Design Ian Callum (pictured) said he was misquoted in an April 18 Autonews Europe story, in which it was inferred Jaguar would not make a successor to the XF Sportbrake and leave the segment to German and Swedish rivals.

Rather, it’s the new XE compact sedan that won’t get a Sportbrake derivative. The Auto News reporter says he’s amending the piece.

Callum hasn’t confirmed, however, there will be a successor to the XF wagon, now that the XF sedan has been on sale for a while. And he has also reinforced the idea Jaguar will continue to focus on crossovers, given the strong initial interest in the F-Pace and rumors of larger and smaller Jag SUVs. But there is a glimmer of hope the brand will have at least one traditional long-roofed car.

Please send it to the U.S., please and thank you.
