Jaguar XF Sportbrake pictures leaked online

Want to know what the Jaguar XF Sportbrake will look like when it is unveiled at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show? Some official pictures of the XFSportbrake have been leaked online, days prior to its scheduled launch. The pictures, which seem to be scanned from a brochure, shows the XFSportbrake featuring a sleek window line and a boot-lip spoiler. 

The pictures also show that Jaguar gave the XF Sportbrake the same disguised C-pillar treatment as the Jaguar XJ. It looks like the XF Sportbrake carry similar rear light arrangement from the saloon. Aside from that, the XF Sportbrake also appears similar to the saloon model from the B-pillars forward.

Jaguar created the XF Sportbrake to compete with the Audi A6 Avant and BMW 5-Series Touring. The XFSportbrake retains the sleek profile of the XF saloon and may feature the same load-lugging capacity as its potential Audi and BMW rivals, and may even be better. Jaguar retained XF Sportbrake’s approximate wheelbase as well as its rear overhang, allowing the Mercedes-Benz E-Class Estate to carry more luggage – beneath the floor.

A picture of the interior of the XF Sportbrake reveals that its rear seats could fold flat, and there also seems to be an additional loading compartment beneath the floor. Jaguar has yet to announce the engine that will power the XF Sportbrake, although it is expected that a 2.2-litre four-cylinder diesel will likely be fitted.  Other engine options include a pair of 3.0-litre V6 diesels and a naturally-aspirated 5.0-litre V8 petrol.  Jaguar will also offer a ski hatch version of the XF Sportbrake.
