BMW has M-Sport, Volkswagen has R-Line and Audi has the S-line . All of these are names for visual upgrades that make cars look faster, but don’t actually do much to increase the speed or performance of a car. Well now Jaguar is joining the party with its new R-Sport models.
Just like the other mentioned trim levels, the R-Sport cars from Jaguar will wear some of the more aggressive body parts found on their R and R-S cars , but without all the pesky cost and hassle of extra horsepower and bigger engines.
The first car to wear the new badge is the XF. Jaguar will be releasing R-Sport versions of both the XF Sedan and the XF Sportbrake . If you were hoping that the R-Sport would at least feature the supercharged V-6 or even the base V-8, you are sadly mistaken. The R-Sport Sportbrake comes powered by a 2.2-liter diesel.
Still, if you are in the market for a practical family hauler, but you want to at least pretend you could afford a 550 horsepower monster there are worse choices available.
