Passenger & boot space

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 copious 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 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.

In terms of boot space, the XF Sportbrake loses out to the E-Class Estate by quite some margin. Its load bay is also smaller than the 5 Series Touring's although larger than the V90's. The XF Sportbrake’s 40/20/40 split-folding rear seats lie completely flat when folded down, resulting in a long, well-shaped extended boot that Jaguar claims can take a decent-sized fridge-freezer.
