Jaguar is a car company that we think of less likely to build a station wagon, but with world of dead SUVs and full of crossovers, a station wagon sounds more reasonable and economical. With that, Jaguar is introducing its latest XF Sportbrake station wagon for the masses.
The Jaguar XF Sportbrake wagon is based on the XF sedan, go figure. It offers with longer roofing and more cargo space than the saloon version. With 19 cubic feet of cargo space when the rear seats are in place and 59 cubic feet when they are folded down, the Jaguar XF Sportbrake wagon’s cargo space is identical to the Mercedes-Benz E-Class Estate wagon.
You may think that the Jaguar XF Sportbrake wagon is more heavier than the sedan version, but not by much, just only 154 pounds more. And to keep the curb weight down for better fuel efficiency, the Jaguar XF Sportbrake wagon is equipped with a 2.2-liter four-cylinder diesel engine. But if you want more power, a 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder diesel engine is also available. Jaguar hasn’t specified the power output of these diesel engine, but we’re guessing 170 horsepower for the 2.2-liter engine and 240 horsepower for the 3.0-liter engine. Power is shifted through the rear wheels via an 8-speed automatic transmission.
We are assuming that the diesel engines for the Jaguar XF Sportbrake wagon will be available in Europe, and we think that the Jaguar XF Sportbrake wagon will likely be available in the States as well, so we are guessing a V6 engine or V8 engine will be available if the import is going to happen.
