Looking through our archives, we’ve been spying on the refreshed Jaguar XF for almost a year now. Judging by these new spy shots of the XF Sportbrake, it almost seems that the engineers of the British company are not making progress in the development of the model.
Caught entering the Nürburgring track in Germany, this prototype looks virtually identical to the test car we first spotted in September last year. Even the camouflage pattern appears to be absolutely the same with many details covering the corresponding front fairing between the new prototype and the one from 10 months ago.
Even despite the camouflage that covers most of the exterior, we can say there should be a pair of thinner headlights up front and a more prominent grille. Inside, the refreshed XF Wagon is expected to see an improvement in quality and functionality, borrowing from the Jaguar I-Pace, including a new steering wheel and secondary display for the climate controls.
It’s hard to predict what will be available under the hood, but there are rumors that the 380 horsepower (283 kilowatt) supercharged 3.0-liter V6 engine could be discontinued. That could leave the base 2.0-liter inline-four as the model’s only gasoline engine. Depending on the region, there should also be a six-cylinder diesel.

Jaguar is currently working on a number of new products – including the refreshed F-Pace – and we expect the revamped XF Sportbrake to break in several weeks. It is expected to go on sale before the end of the year as a 2021 model.
