Jaguar XF Saloon And Sportbrake: Something To Suit Every Taste
Jaguar XF Saloon And Sportbrake: The Differences
Jaguar XF Saloon And Sportbrake: The Differences=
The Jaguar XF Saloon and XF Sportbrake have strengths to suit virtually every taste. The XF is a large executive class car that rivals the BMW 5 Series and Mercedes-Benz E-Class.
The Saloon suits those that want the prestige associated with the body style, such as executives that like to make an impression on their colleagues and clients.
Jaguar claims it has “outstanding comfort and space”, plus a rigid body to help ensure “agile handling”. The XF Sportbrake (estate) has a larger boot and more of a outdoor adventure, family-focussed, image.
The manufacturer says it provides motorists with the “exhilaration of a powerful sporting style with the convenience and versatility of an estate.” XF Sportbrake cargo capacity is 550-litres (to the luggage cover) rising to 1,675 with the rear seats folded flat.
The Saloon's is 540/963-litres. The Sportbrake also has additional rear headroom thanks to its longer and higher roof line. The Sportbrake – in certain forms – also has a button that minimises physical effort by electrically closing its tailgate. The Sportbrake is available with optional features that make transporting cargo safer and easier. Highlights include the luggage guard that prevents cargo leaping from the boot into the passenger compartment during hard braking, or a collision. It complements a load space retention kit that incorporates rails in the floor, a telescopic rod and a strap.
