The Jaguar C-X17 Concept (pictured) teased for Frankfurt
We’ve been pretty sure for some time that a Jaguar SUV Concept (or, really, a Jaguar Crossover Concept) will arrive at the Frankfurt Motor Show this month. And so it is. The Jaguar C-X17 Concept is being teased today, and it’s clear this is Jaguar’s new, small Crossover aiming to take a much bigger slice of the world’s premium market than anything else currently in the Jaguar range.
The Crossover Concept has been put together to showcase not just a future SUV type vehicle from Jaguar, but its new advanced modular aluminium architecture which, as Jaguar say, is designed to demonstrate “…the diversity of vehicles that could be produced using this architecture, which underpins the innovative future of the Jaguar brand.”
As far as we can tell, this new advanced modular aluminium architecture – a development of the platform from the XJ – is already being used in the new Range Rover and Range Rover Sport and will be flexible enough in its scale to be used to underpin everything from the new small Jaguar to the next generation XF and XJ.
With the tease for the Jaguar C-X17 now in the wild, it won’t be long before we see exactly what Jaguar’s sporty crossover actually looks like.
