For The XF Sportbrake is an elegantly proportioned estate car and features a dramatic interior design theme. It’s also brilliant to drive, thanks to its sensational handling and a supple motorway ride.
Against The boot is too shallow, and the seats and the quality of the trim doesn’t measure up to the price tag. The engines aren’t as clean or as fuel-efficient as those in key rivals.
What Car? says
The Jaguar XF Sportbrake is a finely balanced sporting estate. It looks the part and it’s well equipped, but it's not particularly spacious and in some areas, it lacks the requisite premium feel.

The Jaguar XF Sportbrake is an interesting mix of strengths and weaknesses, meaning it’ll suit some people down to the ground, but for others, it’ll be rather disappointing.
If you’re after a proper estate car that can swallow huge loads on a regular basis, you’ll fall into the latter category. The shallow boot can’t match those of rival wagons for space or versatility.
If, however, you’re after a ‘lifestyle’ estate, the Jag could well fit the bill. It’s great fun to drive and the cabin has all the drama of the saloon’s. It still can’t match its main rivals on quality or running costs, though.
