2018 Jaguar XF Sportbrake spy shots and video

Jaguar last fall indicated that its current XF sedan would soon spawn a wagon, releasing a single teaser photo of a camouflaged prototype.

We now have our own spy shots and video of a prototype for the new XF wagon testing on the Nürburgring and some surrounding roads.

The wagon will be called an XF Sportbrake, just like its predecessor unveiled in 2012. Unlike its predecessor, this new one will be sold in the United States, as confirmed by Jaguar Land Rover North America CEO Joe Eberhardt in late 2016.

The original XF Sportbrake is one of the most beautiful wagons ever built, so it’s understandable Jaguar would want to launch a successor. We’re expecting a debut in the second half of 2017, most likely during September’s Frankfurt auto show. The market launch should follow in early 2018.
