Jaguar has begun to roll-out images and info about the wagon variant of its XF range, with an unusual spot of groundskeeping at Wimbledon.

Under the direction of Jaguar design director, Ian Callum, Wimbledon's head groundsman has deviated from the usual tennis court linework to instead trace out the silhouette of the XF Sportbrake (below), the more practical counterpart to the XF sedan.

A second image of the car itself has also been released by Jaguar (top of page), presenting a top-down view of the XF Sportbrake that reveals the previous version's blacked-out D-pillar has been nixed in favour of a more traditional glasshouse, though still with a swept rear roof in keeping with the XF’s dynamic design.

“With XF Sportbrake we’ve created a silhouette which sweeps towards the rear, almost into the distance, and really gives the car a sense of speed and sportiness,” Callum said.

“It will bring new levels of practicality to the range without sacrificing the dynamic design and agile handling our customers expect.”

Set for a full unveiling before going on sale in the Northern Hemisphere summer, the new XF Sportbrake has been confirmed for a local arrival by Jaguar Australia Senior PR Executive, James Scrimshaw, at the 2016 Paris Motor Show where the car was first announced.

Australian timing and specifications are still to be confirmed, but given the slow uptake of wagons compared with sedans here expect a slimmer lineup of Sportbrake variants compared to the sedan.
