Geneva, Switzerland – Reported by Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazine
Today Jaguar revealed the company’s first estate car in 90 years, the Jaguar XF Sportbreak. Promised to be the most versatile Jaguar ever created, the Sportbreak is an estate version of the highly acclaimed XF and is set to rival the BMW 5-series Touring and the Audi A6 Avant.
The XF Sportbreak has been created for a practical yet sporty ride, with a larger docking space and additional 48mm of headroom for passengers in the back seat. Remote-fold levers allow the rear seats to be folded down with just one touch to provide an uninterrupted load surface that is 1970mm in length.
The XF Sportbreak firmly emphasizes both the sustainable and sporting sides of its character through its powertrain choices. Exclusively fitted with Jaguar’s range of four-cylinder 2.2-liter and V6 3.0-liter diesel engines, the XF Sportbreak offers an exemplary combination of fuel economy, low emissions, plentiful power and refinement.
Basics of the new Jaguar XF Sportbreak include:
New rear air suspension allows for self-leveling while load carrying with no dynamic penalty
Remote-fold levers drop the 60:40 split rear seats (with integral ski-hatch) to create up to 1675 liters of load space.
Fitted with Jaguar’s Intelligent Stop–Start system, making it the company’s most efficient powertrain to date
Eight-speed automatic gearbox
