Parkers overall rating: 4.1 out of 5 4.1
  • Big boot with practical load area
  • Lots of interior passenger space
  • Vast array of towing and storage accessories

How much space is there?

The wagon shares the four door’s wheelbase so you get the same generous interior space in the front and back, with the Sportbrake’s extended roofline better accommodating for taller passengers, too. There is some space for feet beneath the front seats, but those sat in the middle will have to contend with a wide centre transmission tunnel that’s also quite tall.

The BMW 5 Series tourer pips it for rear legroom, but in terms of outright interior space the Jaguar XF Sportbrake is capacious.

Boot space and storage

Practicality is the name of the game for the Jaguar XF Sportbrake so you get functions like a gesture-controlled bootlid, 40:20:40 split-folding rear seats, the clever Activity Key and Tow Assist technology.

Mild hybrid models have slightly less load space, but you still get a decent 563-litre boot, meaning this is on a par with the BMW 5 Series Touring, Audi A6 Avant and Volvo V90. The Mercedes-Benz E-Class Estate is still the champion.

Fold the rear seats down and this expands to 1,700 litres, with a flat load floor. It’s a big, square space too with no intrusion, with self-levelling rear air suspension to ensure the XF Sportbrake stays composed even with a fridge freezer on board. That flat load floor also means items up to 2.0 metres long can be transported.

Then there are the huge number of accessories to pick from – there’s a maximum roof payload of 100kg, which means you can attach a 320-litre luggage box, ski and snow board holder, cycle rack, or watersports carriers. You can attach up to three bikes onto a tow bar-mounted cycle carrier, or, if you have bigger plans, the towing capacity of 1,900kg to 2,000kg means you can attach all sorts of trailer to the rear.

Storage space up front includes a large centre cubby box, a pair of cupholders, large door bins, glovebox and a sunglasses holder by the rear-view mirror. Those sat in the rear will find a pair of smaller cupholders on the fold-down centre armrest, storage nets on the front seatbacks, a small storage tray beneath the centre air vents and smaller door bins shaped to hold a drinks bottle.

Is it easy to park?

Despite offering more interior room and loadspace over the previous model, the Jaguar XF Sportbrake is actually shorter and lower than the old car. It’s still quite long though, so pick your bay parking space carefully, and make sure you measure out your garage beforehand to make sure you can get the door closed.

Thankfully the view out is good, with large windows and mirrors. Plus, front and rear parking sensors come as standard on all models, along with a 360-degree camera system that can also show the vehicle in 3D.

Safety

  • Jaguar XF Saloon has five Euro NCAP stars
  • No separate rating for the Sportbrake though
  • Lots of autonomous tech to help avoid crashes

While this car doesn’t have its own Euro NCAP rating, the XF Saloon was given the full five stars, so the Sportbrake should perform similarly.

In terms of safety tech there’s plenty on board – autonomous emergency braking, lane-departure warning and lane-keep assist all work to avoid or mitigate the effects of a crash.

A driver condition monitor spots fatigue, and a traffic sign recognition system keeps an eye on speed limits. Adaptive cruise control with queue assist takes the sting out of traffic jams while park assist can automate a bay or parallel parking manoeuvre.
