Jaguar has gone to enormous length to make sure the debut of the new 2018 Jaguar XF Sportbrake (estate) is a memorable one, because God knows it is hard to make wagons seem exciting. They enlisted the services of world tennis number one Andy Murray. Jaguar is the Official Car Partner of The Wimbledon Championships.
But enough about those shenanigans. Let’s check out the car itself. As you would expect, 2018 Jaguar XF Sportbrake is a brilliant effort as far as estate cars go. It is handsome, elegant, practical above the average standards of this class, and it boasts great powertrains and features. The key features of the new Sportbrake include super-sized, full-length, panoramic roof, Driver Condition Monitoring to detect signs of tiredness after an active day and a waterproof Activity Key you can wear while playing sport. So this is more of a soccer player’s car than a soccer mom’s car!
