Jaguar is trying its hand again in the wagon market, as the new car will be targeted towards European buyers and will be based off of the XF. The Jaguar XF Estate, as its known, will compete against the Audi, BMW and Mercedes-Benz’s wagons.
Upscale station wagons haven't had much success this side of the Atlantic, however across the pond they have built up quite a following. Jaguar's last wagon to come to the U.S. was the 2004 X-Type Estate, though its run was cut short due to lack of popularity primarily attributed to the sedan it was based off of. Jaguar, however, is trying its hand again in the wagon market, as the new car will be targeted towards Europe and based off of the XF. The Jaguar XF Estate, as its known, will compete against the Audi, BMW and Mercedes-Benz's wagons.
"I can't say when or how much, but it is on the cards," said Andrew Whyman, XF Vehicle Engineering Manager for Jaguar to Carsales. He continued, "Ian Callum (Jaguar Design Chief) will do something different with this. It will be slightly different, with character and panache." Kevin Goult, brand manager for Jaguar Australia spoke to motoring.com.au, saying that the local importer would consider bringing a future XF wagon variant to Australia, but that it may be a limited run model. No other details have been released at this time. Photos displayed are of the 2012 Jaguar XF / 2008 Jaguar X-Type Estate.
