2018 Jaguar XF Sportbrake Car Review

There are all sorts of Jaguars to lust after. The XF Sportbrake is particularly desirable if you want performance and a way to get the family where they need to be. Simply put, it’s a station wagon, or in other words a low slung crossover. Tom Voelk finds it’s a good option for people who love driving, need practicality and crave individuality.

About Tom:
Tom Voelk is an award-winning automotive contributor to The New York Times. His podcast was the first to win an Emmy Award. He also married way out of his league. Now, stop reading this promotional copy bragging about Tom’s photography and editing skills and watch a couple episodes. It’s much more interesting.

    Automotive journalists love different things because they get bored a lot quicker than your regular consumer. I've owned one car for the last decade. Automotive journalists Drive 20 cars a week. Things that are weird and different journalists love. Journalist love Mazda's and station wagons. And journalists don't have to deal with cars that break down very much. Because they're constantly driving brand new vehicles.

    Cool, but why must all cars these days have such a sloping roof line at the back? The rear window is so small. No visibility. A sporty design goes before everything these days. Even security. Very short-sighted imo. Juvenile.

    Tom … I’m going to be relocating to Seattle soon. The neighborhood you drove through looks like the type I would like to live in. What’s that neighborhood called/zip code so I can house hunt? Btw, I like wagons but drive a BMW 530e. 😕

    Tom you are one of just a few whose reviews I relish to watch.   Excellent review of this station wagon.  Its pretty cool actually and Jag seems to be improving their offerings lately.   Well done Tom.

    Loved your review as always. I'm not impressed with this car for some reason… I think the rear could have been more Sporty I do know that it's a "Luxury" but Luxury and Sporty go hand and hand most of the time now a days. Yup a active spoiler(hidden) would have sold this for me…on a wagon yes make it work I don't make cars you do lol

    I adore estates. And maybe that's the first step: We all stop calling them 'station wagons' and use their proper name, estates. Or Sportbrakes, for extra marks.

    I will always choose a wagon over an SUV, so long as I've got the choice. This is a nice one!

    Just way overpriced. I mean no Apple Carplay. I would buy a RWD station wagon if one could be around $40k. Not $80k plus. Maybe the Kia Stinger is close enough to what I need

    So you're telling me the Cars of Sherwood Park magazine will never be big due to the fact that I think this car is absolutely disgusting.. aha

    Do both you and your evil twin wear matching smoking jackets while discussing the virtues of estates?

    Do I live in a cave or was there no marketing for this sexy machine? This is the first time I've heard of the brittish wagon and I must say…daaammmmnnnnn

    Nice review on an unusual car, Tom.

    Can you explain to me why premium car manufacturers can't seem to produce an electronic interface – something that they push as a feature – that isn't sluggish or buggy?

    Beautiful, stylish, classy…love wagons! But alas, we drive an Odyssey and a CRV which we love…but the wagon… Love Tom and his delightful reviews, watch many reviews but keep Tom's for last…we would adopt Tom in Canada if we could…

    In my opinion, Jag needs to revise the price, they are charging way more than its worth. Jag got this priced incorrectly, it is priced at least $15,000 more than it should be. JLR should see an increased sale if they consider revisiting their price tag
