This is a car Jaguar needs, to compete with German rivals, which is a wagon version of its XF saloon. The long overdue estate will make its debut at the upcoming Geneva show, but an image of its behind, without any disguise, has been leaked online. It’s grainy, and could have been scanned/snapped from publicity materials.

It’s not fashionable to simply call it the “XF Wagon,” so Jaguar has named it XF Sportbrake. The leaked pic shows a good looking estate car with a sloping roofline and sharply raked tailgate. Quite sleek, and it retains the signature rear look of the XF saloon, with a chrome bar linking the two tail lamp clusters.

And unlike some wagons, the rear screen appears linked to the side glass areas. Blacked out pillars are also present on Jaguar’s XJ limo.

This front image was released earlier by Jaguar itself to promote the car. No big difference with the facelifted XF sedan, but the chrome element in the lower bumper curves in the different direction.

Powertrains will be shared with the sedan, which means 2.2L four-cylinder and 3.0L V6 diesels will be offered beside a 5.0L petrol V8. The UK reports say there’s no supercharged XFR Sportbrake for now.

The facelifted XF was introduced in Malaysia last month, click here for the launch report.
