D he Jaguar XF as a station wagon has been haunted since 2009 There should be gazettes, trade fair premieres, there should be studies, but none of them existed. Instead, consequent silence, until shortly before the premiere at the Geneva Motor Show, the first Erlkönig models appeared with effective advertising.
Jaguar XF Sportbrake with 550 liters load volume
Visually it was already clear that the Jaguar XF Sportbrake is a Jaguar XF - at least up to the B-pillar. Behind it, the station wagon follows its own (roof) line. The belt line rises towards the rear as the XF Sportbrake continues and guides the view of the rear of the estate with its rather narrow window in the flap.
And what's behind the flap and the two narrow taillights with LED inserts? The Jaguar XF Sportbrake has a trunk volume of 550 liters. If you fold down the rear bench seat (ratio 40:60 using the pull lever in the trunk), there is only enough space for two passengers, but the level storage space increases to 1,675 liters, the length of the loading zone is 1.97 meters and the width says Jaguar with 1.064 meters.
Hidden compartment and detachable trailer coupling
In terms of cargo space, the Jaguar XF is Sportbrake is on par with the Audi A6 Avant (656 /1,660 liters) or BMW 5 Series Touring (560 /1,670 liters), but the T-model of the Mercedes E-Class is a long way off (695 /1,950 liters).
In a hidden compartment underneath the load compartment floor, an additional 28 liters of capacity are free - if the Type Repair System has been ordered. The detachable towbar can be stored in another compartment. Once it is installed, a trailer load of 1,850 kilos can be hooked. The trailer track stabilization is activated automatically when it is installed.
