Meanwhile in America, we still don't care.
Last week, we reported that Jaguar would stop building wagon variants of its models. This news came directly from Jaguar design chief Ian Callum, who told Automotive News Europe "the [wagon] market is massively shrinking. I'm very sad about it but it's a very difficult market to justify." As it turns out, Callum was misquoted in this interview. Callum took to Twitter to say that "I have been mis-quoted in @Automotive_News regarding the future of Sportbrake. I said there would be no XE Sportbrake. Nothing more!"
It looks like the world will not have to wave goodbye to the XFR-S Sportbrake any time soon. Callum only meant that we won't see a wagon variant of the XE. Unfortunately for wagon fans in the US, we don't get any of these wagon models anyway. This news is pretty good because the XFR-S is arguably the best looking wagon in the world right now, however, we would care more if Jaguar decided to sell it here. Fortunately, an all-new XF is now on sale, so there's still some hope.
