Re: Jaguar XF Sportbrake

Sexy or strange is a POV.
Strange to me, is buying a wagon, that compromises utility and space. IOW, why freaking bother.

As Jaguar, Volvo, and even Ford with the ROW Fusion wagon have shown, it's not an either/or proposition.

Re: Jaguar XF Sportbrake

Obviously the Jag is sexier and with a price to match, but are you suggesting they both have the same utility space and comfortable seating for 7?

Really!?!?!?!



And F-150 borrowed some of the Flex stylings at the front end.




And did the 2018 Flex just get LED tail lamps? Time to check the order guide...Flex Limited!

If you want a truck, you buy a truck. If you want a car, you buy a car. Nothing difficult about that decision.

Re: Jaguar XF Sportbrake


It's interesting to see how the renderings are done.

But a new MKT could just be a 7-passenger Continental Wagon.

Strange comment.
Not related either.

Re: Jaguar XF Sportbrake

Anyone who has traveled while using a 3rd row can attest to the fact that you quickly give up a lot of space for luggage and gear. So although added space and utility rarely lends itself to better aesthetics, it pays dividends when called upon.

It is called having the "choice".

Having both a wagon and SUV in the driveway, I do not feel any compromises with the wagon at all. In fact it is a pleasure to have a vehicle satisfy the "I wanna have some driving fun" desire , which for me I do not get driving a high center of gravity vehicle.

If driving dynamics is not your priority than stay away from low riding, road eating vehicles and get the high riders. Choice is good IMO.

Agreed. I was just pointing out how the Flex crosses over from SUV into wagon as well.
