Following the wrong interpretation of the words of the chief designer of Jaguar, Ian Callum, in which it was understood that the british brand would never build a vehicle with bodywork family comes this image. In we can see a vehicle clearly Jaguar mounted on a body family. This image and the size of the vehicle makes us think that could be the successor of the first XF SportBreak Jaguar.
well this image together with the statements that you have made in the Paris motor show Andy Goss, Sales Operations Director of Jaguar, have confirmed the news. According to Goss in 2017 there will be more additions to the range of models of the manufacturer of the feline and between them will be the new XF Sportbrake. Therefore, the rumors about a potential Jaguar XE family are discarded.
According to the image the prototypes camouflaged of the new XF Sportbrake are already driving on the roads british testing and test development before its market launch next year. This makes us understand that the brand has a very advanced model and during this time have been playing the ball with their statements and intentions.
With the arrival of this model Jaguar will enter fully in the fight by removing customers to the Audi A6 Avant, BMW 5-Series family, and Mercedes-Benza-Class E State. Also, you have to see the faces with the new Volvo V90, a family member who has come to put the market upside down.
Regarding your design we can only say that keep the lines of the front of the new XF saloon. Where you will change, of course, will be in his rear. According to Ian Callum the design of this part will have a line of roof to the coupe styling and a optical rear inspired by the new F-Pace. This design, like the Mercedes CLS Shooting Brake, will not become the most spacious of the segment but are sure to steal your heart more than a father needs the space.
To stop, range mechanics of the new XF SportBrake will be shared with its sedan brother. It will accommodate the new thrusters Ingenium both in diesel and petrol. In addition, since the department of high performance of the brand are already planning a version SVR high performance to compete against the Audi RS6 and Mercedes E63 AMG .
