[Video] 2018 Jaguar XF Sportbrake teases glass roof image

The British automaker has decided to kick off the teasing game for the upcoming XF Sportbrake station wagon – though imagining how the more versatile version will look is not a hard exercise.

The sleek sedan is going to be joined by its long-roof counterpart which – at least optionally – is apparently coming with an extended panoramic glass roof to provide more natural light inside the cabin. The XF Sportbrake is the only address in Jaguar’s lineup if you really want the wagon body type, because the premium automaker has already made it clear its entry-level XE is not receiving the Sportbrake treatment. The XF on the other hand is going to have a handful when it enters the crowded segment – since the BMW 5 Series, and Mercedes E-Class estates are basically all-new generations – whereas the British contender is a facelift.

The XF Sportbrake should come with basically the same engine roster as the sedan version, with a much larger boot and perhaps better head room for the rear passengers thanks to the new roofline. Jaguar even says the XF Sportbrake will reach dealerships this summer in Europe, so the introduction is to be expected sooner than later – and we also know it will become available in the United States later on.
