Jaguar unveils new estate

This is our first proper look at the Jaguar XF Sportbrake.

Like its saloon brother, the Sportbrake will come with the option of all-wheel drive and All-Surface Progress Control too, meaning you should find traction whatever the weather; it has a colossal 565-litre boot tacked onto the back of it, with the ability to carry up to 1,700 litres possible; it'll tow up to two tonnes, if you're a lifestyle kind of person, and there's self-levelling rear suspension too; and a panoramic sunroof and Gesture Control are part of the equipment highlights.

It also comes with a range of Ingenium petrol and diesel engines, although (in good news for Ireland, at least) of the five launch motors, four are diesels. Base model is the 163hp 2.0-litre four-cylinder motor, good for 62.8mpg (4.5 litres/100km) and 119g/km, with 0-100km/h in 8.7 seconds and a top speed of 212km/h, while at the other end of the scale is the mighty 300hp 3.0-litre V6 S, rocking in a 0-100km/h time of 6.1 seconds, a 250km/h top whack, 49.6mpg (5.7 litres/100km) and 149g/km CO2. The solitary petrol option is a 250hp four-pot motor of middling stats.

The Sportbrake is likely to command around a €3,000 premium on the equivalent XF saloon.

Orders are being taken now for the Jaguar XF Sportbrake and the first cars should be with customers later this year.
