Jaguar has announced the new XF Sportbrake at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show. Practically, it is a Touring version of the XF series, but with sportier and more sleek appearance.

"There is a faily high roofline by necessity, but because of the rising waistline, it still gives the impression of this tapering side window so the car still looks low and lean.", commented Jaguar Studio Director Wayne Burgess.

"This is precisely why Jaguar chose to include the word "sport" in the vehicle's name.", he added.

The XF Sportbrake boasts an impressive cargo area of 1 675 liters. It is also not much heavier than the saloon -  just under 70kg.

The engine range includes two diesel units – the super-efficient 2.2 liter four cylinder and the mighty 3.0 liter V6. Both are coupled with an 8-speed automatic gearbox, which sends all torque to the rear wheels.

Stay tuned for more details!
