Glad to see Jaguar keeping the wagon. I find wagons sexy! I do hope though that the styling of the next XF will be close to the F-Pace or even pushing it further fresh. I personally find the XE boring to look at, and that's cause it came many years after the XF carrying mostly the same design cues.

Callum seems to have run out of fresh ideas.

I would agree if it was not the whole premium segment that currently only seems to manage new cars that looks exactly like either the car they replace or a 0,986% scale version of another model. The "OMG just nothing new" seems to be the new modern for the premium segment, and even mass market models form VAG, and, as far as the new Fiesta is an indicator, also Ford, currently hardly manage to look new.

Callum got punked when when Bertone did the gorgeous B99 that screamed "next XJ" and then Jaguar with the Merkur Scorpio looking hatchbackesque mess that his XJ was. Instead of an emergency redesign when the sales of the XJ collapsed, they've kept on with the same old failure.

I still think the XJ is a stunner. Stands out from the crowd even today.

Unfortunately, Callum's XJ has never sold anywhere near as well as the Forduar XJ that preceded it. The XJ's situation is so dire in the USA that the Hyundai Equus sold nearly as well.

So against all denial at first, here is the official teaser of the second generation Sportbreak.

Wait, what denial was there? Callum said he was misquoted when outlets reported last yr that he said there would be no XF wagon, and Jaguar apparently had shown a preview late last yr.

I imagine it'll be lovely. I do wonder what market impact this will have, given the presence of the F-Pace....

The bottom line, however, is that Callum's styling genius is long gone. Some heritage styling for the sedans is desperately necessary. The Bertone B99 showed how to do heritage without being retro. It is still gorgeous while the XJ looks like what it is: a pathetic Merkur Scorpio tribute.
