GoodWood: Jaguar XF Sportbrake price announced image

The 2013 Jaguar XF Sportbrake will cost between £31,940 and £51,505 when it goes on sale at the end of the year.

This year at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, British carmaker Jaguar unveiled the new XF Sportbrake.

The XF Sportbrake at launch will be available with the choice of four engines – two 2.2 liter diesel units, outputting either 163 PS or 200 PS and two 3.0 liter diesels with 240 PS or 275 PS outputs. The 2.2 liter 163 PS unit produces 135 g/km emissions and officially returns 55.4 mpg – with a 0-62 mph time of 10 seconds.

If diesel isn’t your thing, the Jaguar XF Sportbrake will also have an optional 3-litre V6 petrol engine with 340PS and 450Nm. It gets to 60mph a mere 0.2 seconds quicker than the Diesel S, but fuel economy drops to 30mph.

The XF saloon and Sportbrake will both adopt the eight-speed automatic gearbox and Stop/Start as standard across the engine range.

Interior changes are limited, but include a revised infotainment system (with improved audio and navigation interfaces) and an optional Meridian sound system which has outputs of 380W and 825W.
