Jaguar SUV / Crossover – new photo ahead of revealSat, 07 Sep 2013
The second photo of the new Jaguar Crossover
Jaguar started teasing their new Crossover - codenamed C-X17 – just last week, but we’ve already had the first leaked photo of the new SUV from Jaguar. That photo was just a full on front shot which told us not much more than that the new crossover stands taller than any other Jaguar and comes with a familiar – if slightly more butch – take on Jaguar’s family nose.
But now we get a second photo of the new SUV ahead of its debut at Frankfurt next week (which turned up on ImageShack), and this time it’s a front three quarters profile showing us much more clearly what the new Jaguar has to offer. And it does look pretty convincing.
It’s also clear that the influences from the F-Type are there in some of the profiling and rear lights, but it’s also clear that this isn’t a Jaguar SUV but, as Ian Callum promised, a Jaguar Crossover. Which is no surprise.
With Jaguar’s sister company, Land Rover, making the greatest SUVs on the planet it would be self defeating to go the route of a full blown SUV. Instead, Jaguar have obviously gone the route of a proper handling, sleek but high riding crossover.
There will probably be more leaks ahead of the final reveal next week, but so far the new Jaguar Crossover is looking an interesting g direction.
