Exclusively fitted with Jaguar’s range of four-cylinder 2.2-litre and V6 3.0-litre diesel engines, the 2013 Jaguar XF Sportbrake offers an exemplary combination of refinement, fuel economy, low emissions, plentiful power and refinement. The XF Sportbrake is entirely new from the B-pillar backwards, endowing it with a very different aesthetic, exemplified by the tautly-drawn elegance of the side-window line and highlighted by its polished finish. The conjunction of flowing rear window graphic, rising waist and estate roofline lends the XF Sportbrake a dynamic, broad-shouldered stance.
XF Sportbrake Performance
The 2.2-litre four-cylinder engine is offered in combination with an eight-speed gearbox and Jaguar’s Intelligent Stop-Start system, enabling the XF Sportbrake to offer the performance and driver appeal expected of a Jaguar with reduced emissions and improved fuel consumption. When the car comes to a halt a range of parameters are automatically assessed and, if suitable, the engine is stopped.
A Twin Solenoid Starter then restarts the engine in less time than it takes the driver’s foot to move from the brake to the accelerator. The system also offers ‘change of mind’ functionality, enabling the engine to quickly restart even during its rundown phase to allow the driver to, for example, exploit a gap in traffic at a junction.
