Jaguar is celebrating the 10th anniversary of the XF first going into production with the unveiling of the XF Sportbrake, a lifestyle estate. The new model has been given a range of upgrades in comparison to the XF saloon, including two Ingenium petrol engines producing 197 hp and 247 hp, along with convenience and safety features. Earlier this year Jaguar Land Rover’s latest Ingenium engines were introduced to deliver improved efficiency, lower running costs and enhanced performance. The Sportbrake will officially be unveiled on 14th June.
The long-wheelbase model of the XF was introduced in China last year, with enhanced rear comfort and Clear Exit Detection technology to warn passengers of passing traffic when exiting the vehicle.
