Space & practicality

How it copes with people and clutter

As with the saloon, interior space is one of the XF Sportbrake’s strongest assets. Up front, two tall adults are able to stretch out, thanks to a copious amount of leg and head room – even if it is slightly less cavernous than the 5 Series Touring.

In the rear, both head and leg room are good enough for 6ft-tall adults to sit behind similar-sized folk, 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.

In terms of boot space, the XF Sportbrake loses out to the class-leading E-Class Estate by quite some margin. It's also smaller than the 5 Series Touring but larger than both the V90 and Audi A6 Avant. The XF Sportbrake’s rear seats have also been re-engineered for the Sportbrake in order to allow for a flat load bay when they're folded. The result is a long, well-shaped boot that Jaguar claims can take a decent-sized fridge-freezer.

Unlike the saloon, the XF Sportbrake’s rear seats come as standard with a 40/20/40 split, and the rear audio speakers have been moved from the parcel shelf to the rooflining in order to further increase load space.
