JAGUAR XF SPORTBRAKE

At-a-glance

• The Sportbrake is a premium estate that extends Jaguar's model line up.

• Remote-fold levers drop the 60:40 split rear seats (with integral ski-hatch) to create up to 1675 litres of load-space

• A full five-seater with an additional 48mm of rear headroom

• New rear air suspension allows for self-levelling while load carrying with no dynamic penalty

• Jaguar's Adaptive Dynamics System - which continuously monitors the suspension and can adjust damping rates accordingly up to 500 times a second - is available on all XF Sportbrake derivatives

• Tailgate features 'soft-close' as standard, and can be specified with fully powered open/close functionality

• Premium-quality interior materials used in the cabin are also a feature of the load-space

• Available with both Aero and Black styling packs from for additional on-the-road presence

• Engine options are Jaguar's refined, powerful and efficient range of four and six-cylinder turbo-diesels.

• Matches the XF saloon for both aerodynamics, torsional stiffness and dynamic handling ability

• A range of accessories - both internally mounted by floor rails and externally by roof rails - extends the versatility of the XF Sportbrake still further
