Let's find out.Related: 2018 Jaguar XF Sportbrake: First Impressions The XF Sportbrake stays flat and planted in corners, but numb steering feel is a downer.

I could remember the days that station wagons were a “cool” thing and wood panels suited the exterior of such just like a briefcase accompanied business-clad white-collar workers in the 80s. The pastimes of the infamous station wagon are long gone, but the passion in its versatility that doesn’t compromise to become a tall-stature crossover or SUV has been brought back in a handful of stylish iterations. One form that the British have brought to the modern-day market is Jaguar’s midsized XF in what they dub the XF Sportbrake. >> Get the best price on the Jaguar XF from a network of local dealers now. << The all-new Jaguar XF Sportbrake is, in my opinion, one of the best-looking wagon-types that exudes an elegantly styled yet roomy back-end with ample cargo space. Moreover, the XF Sportbrake retains the already appeasing sleek looks of the XF Sedan up front.

At first, I was slightly put off that the loaned 2018 Jaguar XF Sportbrake S was silver. It’s a really petty thing to complain about, the color of a press car—but after driving it for a weekend, I realized that the more mundane one of these wagons looks, the the more covert you actually feel about driving it. This is a good thing. (Full disclosure: Jaguar wanted us to drive the 2018 XF Sportbrake S so badly that it dropped one off at our office with a full tank of gas and let us keep it for a week.)

And though I didn’t get to drive the Mercedes-Benz E400 wagon that Patrick tested, I have drive enough similar Benzes to pretty much know how it operates.
