We know that we haven’t managed to surprise you with the sheetmetal of the all-new XF Sportbrake. And that’s because Jaguar themselves wanted you to know what it looks like. They even created a dedicated Twitter page where they endlessly talk about the balance between sportiness and practicality, and how difficult it is to obtain. They even post links of ice igloos, rock climbers sleeping on the mountain and plush hotels to make you understand. God that’s a strange Twitter account!
Getting back to the XF Sportbrake, this is an estate version of the XF that will bow at the Geneva Motor Show next week. These photos released by JokeforBlog show what look to be scans of a marketing or sales brochure. So what do these photos reveal that hasn’t already been seen?
First off, the new taillights are similar but not identical to those on the sedan. Below, we’ve posted a photo of the 2012 XF’s back end for you to compare at your leisure, and notice the chrome and the gate are flatter in the estate version.
Also revealed by the brochure scans is the cavernous interior. The rear seats have a 60/40 split and fold completely flat to create a load space big enough for a stuffed elk or a whole pack of dogs after you’ve cleaned their paws. Just like any true Audi A6 Avant rival, you should get all the nets and movable rails to keep everything in place.
Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
