Parkers overall rating: 4.2 out of 5 4.2
  • 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.

  • Big boot with practical load area
  • Lots of interior passenger space
  • Vast array of towing and storage accessories

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.

We’ve explained the passenger space available in the Comfort section, but in terms of outright interior room the Jaguar XF Sportbrake is very capacious indeed.

A flat load floor means items up to 2.0 metres long can be transported, plus a towing capacity of 1,900kg to 2,000kg means you can attach all sorts of trailer to the electrically deployable tow ball.

Then there are the huge number of accessories you can pick – 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. Up to three bikes can be attached to a tow bar-mounted cycle carrier too.

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 before purchase to make sure you can get the door closed.

A decent 565-litre boot expands to 1,700 litres, with a flat load floor, by folding down the rear seats. It’s a big, square space too with no intrusion too, with self-levelling rear air suspension to ensure the XF Sportbrake stays composed even with a fridge freezer on board.

One downside is the location of the AdBlue filler on diesel cars – inside the boot high up on the left hand side. Be very careful when refilling your tank…
