The Sportback will usher in two new engines
The Jaguar XF Sportbrake will cost from £31,940 when it goes on sale at the end of the year after its UK debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. The model will also mark the introduction of new variants of the 2.2-litre four-cylinder diesel.
The PSA-derived unit will be offered in 160 and 197bhp outputs, and will replace the current 187bhp engine. Both models share the same CO2 rating of 135 or 139g/km, depending on spec, and fuel economy of 55.4mpg.
A 3.0-litre V6 diesel engine producing either 237 or 271bhp will also be available, but the saloon’s new 335bhp supercharged V6 petrol unit will not be offered at launch.
The saloon’s eight-speed automatic gearbox and stop-start are standard on all models. Jaguar claims these changes reduce emissions by up to six per cent.
Jaguar’s new 3.0-litre supercharged V6 is currently the most potent engine in the standard XF’s line-up. The engine, which will be shared with the Jaguar F-Type, replaces the naturally-aspirated 5.0-litre V8 and is capable of powering the XF saloon to 62mph in 5.7sec. Jaguar claims combined fuel consumption of 30mpg on the combined cycle with emissions of 224g/km.
Trim grades follow the current XF saloon, comprising SE Business, Luxury, Sport, Premium Luxury and Portfolio.
The Jaguar XFR saloon can now be specified with a Speed Pack, which raises the top speed to 174bhp, and equipped with revised engine and gearbox settings, a front splitter and new rear wing.
