jaguar xf estate yes please or uh oh not again

It figures these renderings of the new British wagon would come from Auto Motor Sport in Sweden, a country fully in love with big wagons. OK, so the last Jaguar wagon, er, estate wasn’t exactly the height of success. Our own RF ripped the British brand a new one for building the X-Type Estate. But perhaps a larger version might do well—especially if the rumor mill is correct and those crazy Indians/Brits have jammed Jag’s in-house 510 hp supercharged V8 under the hood. We should see the Jag estate [Ed. I christen thee “Jagon”] as a completed car at Geneva by that most blessed of automotive dates: 2010. In the mean time, wagon lovers can savor whatever dreams wagon lovers dream.

    What made the X-Type wagon a crock was that it was an X-Type and hideous to begin with. Well, that and the fact that it was a not a Jaguar, but a Mondeo, didn't help. The XF could work in Europe as an Estate, but I don't see it working in the U.S. ever. BMW and Mercedes wagons haven't really been big players here, so there's no reason to think that Jaguar could do any better.

    Please don't. Here are (my version) the Jaguar perfect line up: XF (5 seat sedan, 4 seat convertible, 4 seat coupe); XJ (limo) XK/XKR (roadster 2 seat)
