2013 Jaguar XF Sportbrake live photos

Jaguar and Geneva have always had a special connection, ever since the now-famous E-Type was launched at the show back in 1961.

The XF Sportbrake isn't as glamorous as an E-Type but Jaguar's wagon is still a sophisticated beast, and we grabbed some live photos of it on the show floor.

The Sportbrake still hasn't been confirmed for the U.S. market, but in Europe the car will get Jaguar's full range of gasoline and diesel engines, which includes the 2.2-liter, four-cylinder turbodiesel, a 3.0-liter turbodiesel, and even the range-topping XFR.

To cope with the extra weight likely to be placed in the trunk, all XF Sportbrakes are equipped with self-leveling air suspension, rather than coil springs. The setup has been tuned to deliver the same impressive handling as the sedans.

The XF's styling has made a successful transition from sedan to wagon, looking every bit as sleek as the regular car. Like Jaguar's flagship XJ models, the XF Sportbrake has gloss black rear pillars, to create the illusion of the tailgate glass wrapping around the sides.

For more information on the car, head over to our XF Sportbrake preview. You'll find all the latest news from Geneva on our dedicated show page.

  1. Where the blacked-out C pillar is more successful on darker-colored XJ's where it's presence is better disguised - It works far better here on lighter-colored Sportbrakes.

    Lets home Mr Tata sends these Stateside where it will give the E Class Estate a run for it's money.
