Jaguar XF Sportbrake

What It’s Really Like to Drive the Jaguar XF Sportbrake! When Jaguar first announced the new XF wagon, we shared, “the wagon will share an aluminum architecture and Ingenium engine (both gasoline and diesel) with the XF sedan and will be approved for “global markets.”

According to Motor Trend, the Sportbrake is, “Low-slung and handsome, the Sportbrake combines the graceful driving dynamics of the XF sedan with the load carrying capacity and winter road capability of the F-Pace. It is, for most people, the rational alternative to an SUV. And that’s the problem: although automotive consumers always rationalize their purchases, their purchase decisions are rarely rational. Right now, SUVs are hot, and wagons are not. It’s as simple as that.”

According to iNews, the Sportbrake is, “It also works well with the eight-speed auto, although there can be a touch of hesitation when pulling away – something of a trait of JLR transmissions these days. Once you’re up to speed, it’s all very slick, with just 2000rpm on the rev counter at 70mph and a pleasantly hushed ambience in the cabin.”
