Jaguar Australia today confirmed that it will bring the sleek XF Sportbrake wagon to local showrooms, reversing an earlier decision to leave it out of the local lineup.

Speaking with TMR today, Jaguar Australia’s brand manager Mark Eedle said the decision to now offer the XF Sportbrake was thanks to the success of the wider XF range.

“We feel that the XF Sportbrake gives us a good opportunity to showcase a broader range of product,” Mr Eedle said.

“After the successful repositioning of MY13 XF, it’s given us the confidence to bring the Sportbrake here.”

Originally, Jaguar said that it would be prohibitive to engineer the rear seats to suit Australia’s top-tether child-seat requirements, but now says that in combination with new ISOFIX restraints, the top-tether anchor point will be installed to suit local design rules.

It has a fight on its hands, however. The Audi A6 Avant, Mercedes-Benz E-Class Estate and BMW 5 Series Touring all have an established following - but crucially, all are available with petrol engines.

The XF Sportbrake, by contrast, will be available only in turbo-diesel form with the 2.2 and 3.0 litre engines both finding their way under the bonnet.

Mr Eedle cautioned that it would be brought in limited numbers but wouldn’t be drawn on pricing at this stage.

“We can expect the XF Sportbrake here, late in quarter one of next year”, Mr Eedle said.
