With its competition stepping up and raising the stakes, the 2017 Jaguar XF Sportbrake has very little to lose and almost everything to gain. This just might spark the old rivalries and start some new ones, but first things first. This is what we’ve got so far.
2017 Jaguar XF Sportbrake Release Date
The release date is going to depend largely on the market you are in. Still, the first models should make an appearance as early as 2017.
Jaguar XF Sportbrake Price
The base model should not go for anything less than $50,000 and considering all the optional equipment, the final price tag might be a lot higher than that. It all depends on how strong your will to resist its allure is.
The new and improved design language did not circumvent the 2017/2018 Jaguar XF Sprotbrake. The lines are as simple and elegant as they get, so it is hard to imagine how the designers might improve upon them, and not ruin the whole thing.
The lighter materials are going to be the main source of extra performance, and the increased dimensions should not be much of a problem in this regard. Even a carbon fiber trim should be available to those who like to shed all the unnecessary weight.
The new LED headlights, taillights and daytime running lights are all on par with modern trends, and all the extra features are going to make an appearance in due time.
Interior of Jaguar XF Sportbrake
On the inside, the 2017 Jaguar XF Sportbrake is going to benefit from its larger wheelbase. This is going to be appreciated by passengers in the back seat. They could use some more legroom and now they just might get it.
The rest will probably go straight to the cargo space, so this aspect should also be mentioned. As for the other features, there should be an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system on the central console, as well as the audio system with 8 speakers.
Jaguar has never really skimped out on materials, so it stands to reason that they will offer all the quality materials one can rightfully expect.
If you are willing to pay a little extra, you can get a larger, 10.2-inch touchscreen and all the extra features it has to offer.Although, this is more useful to professional drivers and those who like to pretend to be.
The 2017 Jaguar XF Sportbrake is going to bring all the power that British auto industry has to offer. This means we can expect no less that a 3.0 L V-6 that can easily dish out at least 335 hp and 332 lb-ft of torque.
Of course, if you want something a bit less awesome, you could always opt for the 2.0 L version with 161 hp. The usual lineup consists of several engine options, burning gasoline or diesel respectively, but the exact lineup is still a head-scratcher at this time.
The transmission is either a 6-speed manual or an 8-speed automatic. It all depends on the kind of engine that you opted for.
