The Jaguar XFR-S Sportbrake was presented for the first time at the Geneva Motor Show, and it is the kind of car that will change your perception on station-wagon models.
The car looks better than the regular XF Sportbrake but the reason to want it is for its 5.0 liter supercharged V8. Using an eight speed automatic transmission, it produces 550PS and 680Nm and it can reach 100km/h in 4.8 seconds and has an electronically limited top speed of 300km/h.
A tad too fast for a station wagon you say?
The XFR-S Sportbrake also comes with the added wife/family-convincing benefit of 1,675 liters of rear load space with the rear seats folded down.
"Combining real-world versatility with electrifying performance, the XFR-S Sportbrake brings Jaguar's sporting character to life in a truly engaging car that will satisfy the most demanding of drivers while fitting into the most active of lifestyles," says Dean Murden, Vehicle Programme Director at Jaguar.

Winter can be a tough season for car dealerships in colder climates as the bad weather dampens many customers’ enthusiasm for taking test drives, surprise storms cause people to cancel their appointments and avoid leaving the house, and people worry about damaging a new purchase in the elements. President’s Day sales offer some reprieve as great deals and the thought of spring approaching encourage many to get out to the lot, but between New Year’s Eve and President’s Day, it’s often a quiet time for dealerships.
