Earlier this year we have been served with the spy shots of the Jaguar XF with estate body, signifying Jaguar's entry into the large estate tapping into the market of BMW 5 Series and BMW E Class Touring. In the UK market, or European for the matter, there is always a demand for large estate with torquey engine and can be hooked to a caravan for the English gentleman to travel to the cold countryside to sip a tea within the warmth of the campfire. Now those gents have another option, in the shape of stylishly proportioned Jaguar XF Sport Brake, due to be unveiled in Geneva.
Leaked from the brochure perhaps, but we can clearly see that the Sport Brake variant retains the Sedan raising belt line and sloping rear roof, tastefully adorned with chromed accents that trimmed the darkened D-pillar. The darkened pillar trimmed with chrome garnish is a reminiscence of the bigger and never XJ model, which premièred the latest of Jaguar design language.
The car is expected to carry all those improved items from the facelifted XF which include an all-new front end which totally get away from the previous bulbous looks. The lines are now deeply elegant and really shout some English taste to it.
The powertrain option should mirror those on the sedan, which include the four-cylinder 2.2L turbodiesel with 190PS, 3.0L V6 turbodiesel with 240PS and 275PS state of tune, 3.0L V6 gasoline that produced 238PS, 5.0L V8 petrol that kicks out 385PS and perhaps the thundering supercharged 5.0L V8 that punched 510PS. All the diesel version drive the rear wheel via an 8 speed auto transmission while the petrol sticks to the older 6 speed automatic gearbox.
