2021 Jaguar XF Sportbrake Facelift Spied, Should Debut Late Next Year

The Jaguar XF is approaching middle age, so the company is working on a facelift for their mid-sized sedan and wagon.

The latter was spotted by spy photographers earlier today and it appears the Sportbrake will receive a minor refreshing similar to the given to the 2020 XE.

Despite the heavy camouflage, we can see the model has been equipped with new headlights and a modestly revised front bumper. The changes are echoed out back as the model appears to have an updated rear bumper and slimmer taillights.

While the exterior styling changes are pretty minor, bigger updates are expected in the cabin. Like the XE, the XF is expected to feature a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, an updated infotainment system and a second touchscreen display for accessing the climate control system and adjusting the heated / ventilated seats.

We can also expect a new steering wheel and a revised center console which could see the rotary gear knob replaced by a more conventional shifter. Other updates are expected to include higher quality materials, new switchgear and revised trim / upholstery options.

Under the hood, there should be cleaner diesels that comply with future emission standards. The model could also be offered with a new mild-hybrid powertrain that features a 3.0-liter inline-six engine that produces 395 hp (295 kW / 400 PS) and 405 lb-ft (550 Nm) of torque.

The facelifted Jaguar XF will reportedly debut in the second half of 2020. This means the model will be unveiled several months after the facelifted F-Pace.
