New Jaguar XF Sportbrake prices announced

Jaguar XF Sportbrake prices start from £31,940 for the estate – less than £2,000 more than the saloon version – for entry-level versions.

There is plenty of choice in the new XF Sportbrake range including 2.2-litre diesel engines in 163PS or 200PS variations and a 3.0-litre V6 diesel in 240PS or 275PS variations.

The 2.2-litre 200PS replaces the current 190PS version available in the saloon, while the V6 is an all-new engine set to also appear in the new Jaguar F-Type sports car.

Unsurprisingly, the 2.2-litre returns the lowest running costs with fuel economy of 55.4mpg and 135g/km of CO2 emissions.

These are lower than the current saloon version but the new engines will be introduced to the four-door model when the XF Sportbrake arrives towards the end of 2012.

All models will be matched to an eight-speed automatic gearbox and will include stop-start technology to reduce emissions by up to six per cent.

Equipment levels in the premium XF Sportbrake mirror those of the generously-equipped saloon and the same four trim levels are available; SE Business, Luxury, Sport and Portfolio, although some have different variations depending on options chosen.

However, all models get Bi-Xenon headlamps, LED daytime running lamps, DAB digital radio, 7″ colour touch-screen display and blue interior lighting.

The seats are upholstered with leather and the Jaguar XF comes with a new, upgraded Meridian sound system with amplifier and speaker units.

Deliveries of the updated Jaguar XF saloon will take place September with prices starting from £29,940. The new Jaguar XF Sportbrake will arrive later and cost from £31,940.
