Following the leaked images of the new XF Sportbrake, and months of teasing us with the camouflaged development mules, Jaguar has finally revealed its eagerly awaited estate XF model, the Sportbrake, at the Geneva motor show.

Sportbrake takes the successful XF, and adds a new level of practicality. The five-seat tourer has increased headroom for back-seat passengers, and with the split-fold rear seats down, it can carry a copious 1675 litres of cargo.
Self-levelling suspension at the rear means heavy loads can be carried without compromising dynamics or safety. Initially powering the Sportbrake will be a choice of two diesel engines - the 187bhp 2.2 four-cylinder engine and the 237/271bhp 3.0-litre V6.
Prices and specifications will be announced nearer the time of the launch, expected to take place towards the end of 2012.
