PRESTIGE car brand Jaguar is jumping back into the premium estate space of the market, with the introduction of the new Jaguar XF Sportbrake.
The XF Sportbrake sets new standards for practicality and convenience with user-friendly features and technologies including self levelling air ride suspension, a gesture controlled blind for the 1.6m2 panoramic roof, gesture controlled tailgate, and a completely redesigned 10-inch infotainment system.
Powered by new state-of-the-art four-cylinder Ingenium petrol and diesel engines, designed to deliver clean, efficient power from 132kW to 184kW, the XF Sportbrake will also have the option of a powerful 221kW/700Nm 3.0-litre V6 diesel, capable of sprinting to 100kph in 6.6 seconds – not bad for a wagon.
Load space will be an astounding 1,700 litres with the split folding rear seats lowered, thanks to a 565 litre boot space, while cabin air filtration and ionisation will remove pollutants entering the vehicle to provided added safety to families. Jaguar’s driver condition monitoring system also detects signs of drowsiness and warn drivers when they need to take a break, and joins a full suite of driver assistance and safety systems.
The 2018 Jaguar XF Sportbrake will hit the road in Australia at the end of the year, with pricing starting from $90,400 (plus on-roads) for the R-Sport 20d RWD auto.
