After numerous official ‘spy shots’ and teases, the new Jaguar XF Sportbrake estate has finally been unveiled.

The launch of the new XF Sportbrake also marks ten years since the launch of the original XF saloon at the 2007 Frankfurt motor show.

The XF Sportbrake shares most of its underpinnings and technology with the second-generation XF saloon, but does gain a few new features. It will launch with a range of Ingenium diesel engines, as well as the new Ingenium petrol engines that are also being introduced to the XF saloon.

Innovations for the XF Sportbrake include gesture control operation for the tailgate and panoramic roof, a driver drowsiness detection system and a waterproof car key. Furthermore, an optional air purification system will work to clean cabin air against external pollution.

The XF Sportbrake boasts a 565-litre load space with the rear seats up. The rear suspension is self-levelling to keep the ride under control regardless of load. Towing capacity is rated at two tonnes. 

To publicise Jaguar’s sponsorship of the Wimbledon tennis tournament, the XF Sportbrake was unveiled on a replica Centre Court. The car will now embark upon a UK-wide tour of tennis clubs and schools, with Andy Murray’s Wimbledon trophy safely stored within, helping to inspire the next generation of British tennis talent.
