Here's something you may not have known: Jaguar sells a station wagon here in North America. I don't mean Jaguar "once sold" a station wagon here in North America, in the sense that they once gave us the X-Type Wagon. I mean they currently sell a station wagon here, and it's called the XF Sportbrake, and it's been out for about a year, and I've only seen one on the road.

As a result of this, the XF Sportbrake is already a pretty amazing used bargain.

Here's a basic overview of the situation. The XF Sportbrake starts around $72,000, which is an enormous amount of money for a station wagon. It offers an impressive powertrain -- a supercharged V6 with 380 horsepower and 332 lb-ft of torque -- but Jag didn't quite go far enough with the powertrain, so car enthusiasts are largely avoiding this vehicle because it doesn't quite have enough performance, and so are suburban families who would rather have an SUV.

The result, of course, is excellent used pricing. The XF Sportbrake is truly quite rare, but there are currently about 30 listed for sale on Autotrader. And while the XF Sportbrake starts around $72,000 for a new model, and can easily go into the $80,000 range with options, used models are nowhere near there. In fact, the cheapest used XF Sportbrake models are in the mid-$50,000 range. Mind you, this is for a one-year-old vehicle with 10,000 miles or less.

Some of these cheap used XF Sportbrake models also come with Jaguar's certified pre-owned warranty, which touts impressive coverage: up to 7 years or 100,000 miles of comprehensive coverage, which is far better than Jaguar's new warranty. For this reason, it may actually make more sense to buy this car used than new: it's a total bargain, and you get a longer warranty than you would if you bought a new car.

Unfortunately, the trick is finding a used Sportbrake, as -- like I mentioned -- they aren't exactly everywhere. But if you do find one, the XF Sportbrake is a stylish, interesting, increasingly-reasonably-priced, alternative to a typical midsize SUV.
