Greetings, wagon aficionados in the US! How have your latest wagon purchases been? None? Then, how can we justify bringing more wagons here?

In 2021, according to Roadshow, the US market bids farewell to one more sleek, speedy luxury wagon, the Jaguar XF Sportbrake.


The lack of shock here is palpable. I attempted to muster surprise, but alas, I think there’s a mental twist. I then sought sales statistics for the vehicle, with vague success. Though the XF Sportbrake has been present in the US market since 2017, the sole US sales data I located was on GoodCarBadCar from 2018, where merely 99 XF Sportbrakes were sold in all twelve months. In that year, Jaguar traded 30,483 automobiles in the US as per CarSalesBase, rendering the sub-100 XF Sportbrake sales even more painful, specifically since vehicles tend to have better sales during initial life cycles. Regardless, I personally haven’t witnessed one on the roads, which is regrettable since it’s a visually appealing wagon.

The silver lining is that the standard XF sedan will still grace us in 2021, hitting the markets in January. The classic three-box XF receives a handsome mid-cycle makeover with refreshed aesthetics, an updated infotainment system, and an array of standard features. It looks impressive, but unfortunately, if you’re in the US, the Sportbrake version is off-limits.

Thus, if you fancy any other wagons on sale in the US, remember to back your desire with a purchase. As noted by Roadshow, several lavish wagons are making their way stateside, ranging from traditional powerhouses like the Audi RS6 Avant and Mercedes-AMG E63 S to those aimed at outclassing crossovers on softer terrains, like the Mercedes-Benz E-Class All-Terrain and the Audi A6 Allroad.

Take a gander at the array of wagons available for purchase! Should you abstain, automakers will assume we’re not interested.
