Wagon/estate variant of the Jaguar XF is sporting its name, 'Sportbrake', on the side of the prototype spied here

These are the first spy shots available of the 2012 Jaguar XF Sportbrake, caught while out for a test drive in Britain.

How do we know that Jaguar will be calling the wagon/estate variant of the XF the Sportbrake? Well, it's written in bold type on the side the prototype spied here. There's also a message about following them on Twitter.

Still, there's the camo trying to cover things up so Jaguar isn't giving everything away. But we can make out much of the rounded shape of the rear of this wagon model which gives the car a light, sporty look.

The XF Sportbrake will be competing against some illustrious company such as the Audi A6 Avant and the BMW 5-Series Touring.

The 2012 Jaguar XF Sportbrake is expected to make a debut at the Geneva motor show next March.

Oh I've been looking forward to this car. It's just a shame they probably won't offer it in a manual :(

big cars are better automatic. small and proper sporty cars need manual. plus the autos these days are faster and generally more economical than the manuals anyway. the paddles are there for manual control

It is a Jagg not a Toyota. all luxury cars deserves an auto box - it has flappy paddles if you want to engage in spirited driving - if that is not enough for you then you want the car for the wrong reasons.

I agree my dad as an xf and the manual paddles are great much better to use than my manual gearbox on my five series if u want to use it as a manual

"all luxury cars deserves an auto box" I disagree, I like driving a luxury car as much as anyone, but I like the added economy, power and reduced CO2 emissions that come from a manual gearbox, I also like the fact that a manual gearbox constantly engages you in driving even if you are just taking a lazy Sunday drive. If you drive an automatic you need not take a Sunday drive at all. Just sit at home and watch driver POV videos on youtube, it is basically the same thing. I learnt to drive in an automatic and vowed that I would never drive a manual. However after learning a manual I discovered that it is a completely different experience and now I don't think I will ever own another automatic again..

I reckon you're right - those XF saloon lights look stuck on to disguise a different rear. I'm sure it'll be a great alternative to the ambiguous A4 Avants / 3 Series Tourings / C-Class Estates on British roads, but can't help think the shape looks a little bit like a Holden Commodore wagon in Australia: http://www.carsguide.com.au/images/uploads/Holden-Commodore-wagon-green-3.jpg
