As promised, the next-generation Jaguar XF Sportbrake sport wagon was finally unveiled today in Wimbledon, England, with the participation of top-ranked tennis star Andy Murray.
The previous generation of the XF wagon was never produced for North America, but the new model will hit our shores a little later this year, the company has announced (just for the U.S. as there are no immediate plans for Canada). The Sportbrake will team up with the XF sedan to give Jaguar a potent one-two punch in the mid-size luxury car market segment.
"The iconic Jaguar posters of the 1950s promised customers grace, pace and space,” said Ian Callum, Jaguar Director of Design. “The XF Sportbrake re-imagines this offer for 21st-century active families, with stunning looks, sports car performance and a load space fit for active lifestyles."
In addition to its highly aerodynamic contours (which result in a drag co-efficient of just 0.29), the Jaguar XF Sportbrake comes with a 380-hp supercharged V6, the Driver Condition Monitoring system for detecting driver drowsiness, a panoramic sunroof with gesture-controlled sunblind, and 878 litres of trunk space that expands to over 1,950 litres with the rear row of seats folded down.
