Jaguar XF Sportbrake Comes At A Lower Price Tag

jaguar xf sportbrake

Those who want to own a Jaguar but cannot afford its skyrocketing price tags will have the chance through the Jaguar XF Sportbrake, which will be valued at a reasonable price of just $48,770. That’s pretty low for a car bearing the Jaguar name.

If you want the wagon counterpart, you’ll have to shell out a lot more. The wagon version will cost a whopping $71,445 since it will only come in two high-equipment trim levels. No base model for this variant, unfortunately.

In the “near future,” Jaguar Land Rover North American CEO Joe Eberhardt said that Jaguar enthusiasts can have the XF Sportback on a more reasonable price range. There are plans to produce more variants of the mid-size luxury wagon.

There are no exact details yet about the XF Sportbrake, but all we know is that the wagon will have the most powerful and expensive powertrain in the XF lineup—that’s a supercharged V-6 engine paired with an all-wheel-drive system and can power up the vehicle up to 380 horsepower.

To bring the cost down on the XF Sportbrake, Jaguar would have to use its new Ingenium turbocharged four-cylinder engine. For the sedan, the gas-powered four-cylinder will be available in two power capabilities—one producing 247 horsepower and the other churning up 296 horses.

You may also opt for a diesel engine that produces 180 horsepower on a turbocharged four-cylinder as well.

But if you’ve got the money to spare, you can wait for Jaguar’s flagship XJ and compact XE sedans. These are going to be a handful in the price department, though, since the tags are well north of $100,000 each.

The XJR575, which can produce 575 horses, will go on sale later this year for $123,395. Aside from that, the full-size luxury sedan will also have an additional 105 horsepower over the next XJ model—the XJ Supercharged. The difference will allow the XJR575 to reach 186 mph. the XJ Supercharged an only do a measly 155 mph.

 

 

3 Things You Have To Know About The 2018 Jaguar XF Sportbrake

Jaguar XF Sportbrake

If you have money to burn (we’re assuming a Jaguar is only for the moneyed, okay?), then the 2018 Jaguar XF Sportbrake is definitely something you need to have. Spy shots of a new XF wagon from Jaguar was seen being tested in Nurburgring and some surrounding roads.

Called the XF Sportbrake, the wagon will be the next generation of its predecessor unveiled last 2012. But unlike the current model in the market, this one is finally going to be sold in the United States.

Competition

You’ll want to know which brands the Jaguar is competing with this particular wagon of theirs, right? Well, it seems like based on specs and designs alone, the XF Sportbrake will be vying with the Mercedes-Benz E-Class wagon, the Volvo V90, and the Porsche Panamera wagon, which is yet to be unveiled.

Future

This particular model is going to be the last body style for the current XF. The standard sedan versions were released in 2015 while in 2016, we saw the long-wheelbase XF L for the Chinese market. As for the XE sedan? There’s not going to be a wagon version of that, unfortunately. This was confirmed by Jaguar design head Ian Callum.

Power

We still don’t know exactly what’s under the hood of the XF Sportbrake. There’s a good chance, though, that Jaguar launches an XF SVR Sportbrake. This will the successor to the original XFR-S Sportbrake.

The XF SVR and the XFR-S Sportbrake will most likely offer the supercharged 5.0-liter V-8 engine in the F-Type SVR. This engine can produce a whopping 575 horsepower.

The 2012 XF Sportbrake was one of Jaguar’s most successful wagons. It’s only fitting that Jaguar builds its predecessor. It will most likely launch in the second half of 2017, probably at the September Frankfurt Auto Show.

The market launch of the upcoming Jaguar XF Sportbrake is expected in 2018.

3 Things You Should Know About The 2018 Jaguar XF Sportbrake

Spy shots of the 2018 Jaguar XF Sportbrake, which will be introduced at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show, have recently been released, and it confirmed some rumors we have heard in the past. For one, though details are scarce because the prototype was heavily camouflaged, it has an untouched front design as compared to the changes made on the sedan and the rear end is now significantly longer.

Jaguar was Hesitant

Jaguar was, at first, hesitant to introduce a wagon variant of their business saloon because competition is tough in the segment, especially with German competitors such as the E-Class Estate, the Audi A6 Avant and the 5 Series Touring. These are all well-established models, especially in their hometown of Germany. But another thing that made Jaguar hesitant was that the market seems to be declining with regards to this particular segment.

But, of course, Jaguar did not simply give up. They already have experience with a competent family wagon that has an appealing and interesting design, and the Jaguar XF Sportbrake is no different. There is no word yet on how the 2018 model will be patterned, though the proportions hidden by the camouflage in the spy shots clearly hint similarity with its predecessor. With the chiseled design of the 2016 XF in mind, there is already a clearer picture of how this new XF Sportbrake will look like.

Changes are Internal

Not much are changing in terms of the overall exterior look of the XF Sportbrake. Instead, adjustments and modifications are all happening under the hood (and maybe even in the interior setup). The XF Sportbrake will be based on the XF sedan, which explains the identical front.

Rumored V8 Might Be True

The XF Sportbrake will be made of aluminum material, making it lighter in weight. It will come with the Ingenium four- and six-cylinder diesel and gasoline engines, as well as a rumored plug-in hybrid drivetrain. Also in the pipeline is a possible 5.0-liter V8 with a production of either 550 horsepower or 575 horsepower, just like what Jaguar did with the F-Type SVR.
