Passenger & boot space
How it copes with people and clutter
As with the Jaguar XF saloon, interior space is one of the Sportbrake’s strongest assets. Up front, two tall adults are able to stretch out thanks to copious leg and head room – even if it is slightly less cavernous than the BMW 5 Series Touring.
In the rear, head and leg room are good enough for 6ft tall adults to sit behind similarly-sized folk in the front – even with the optional panoramic roof fitted. If you want even more space, the Volvo V90 is more capacious, but the XF Sportbrake offers a touch more knee room and foot space under the front seats than the 5 Series Touring.
