Of course, the XF Sportbrake wagon's styling has never been much of a secret: Jaguar engineers have been punting around in a barely-disguised test car for sometime now, with the Sportbrake name emblazoned along its side.
Cosmetically, the Sportbrake shares much of the sedan's look, with only the wagon roofline separating the profiles of the two cars.
The theme continues at the rear, where even the Sportbrake's tail-lights are unchanged from the recently updated units worn by the XF sedan.
Unlike Mercedes-Benz' upcoming and recently spied CLS Shooting Break, the XF Sportbrake focuses on practicality, combining a fast and tapered roofline with a commodious rear cargo area.
The wagon will be especially welcome in Australia, where the XF's 550 sales in 2011 trailed the E-Class (1386), the 5 Series (1384) and the A6 (710).
