The long-awaited Jaguar XF Sportbrake will be rolling into Geneva’s PALExpo Convention Center next week, it seems, and thanks to a brochure falling into the wrong hands we’ve got these preliminary pics to show our readers before we get a look at the wagon in the flesh, so to speak, at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show.
Considering the strong popularity of station wagons – aka “shooting brakes” in Brit-speak – it’s a surprise that it has taken Jaguar so long to bring into its line-up after a few false starts over the decades.
But the maker is now on a roll, along with its British sibling Land Rover, and between them they plan more than three dozen new products, variants and major powertrain launches before mid-decade, according to senior company officials.
The brochure images – which align with recent spy shots – reveal that from the B-pillar forward Jaguar has maintained the basic look of the XF sedan. But from mid-body back it’s all-new, including the use of black-out trim that appears lifted from the bigger Jaguar XJ.
