Jaguar Takes You Off-road With The C-X17
This is the brand new 2013 Jaguar C-X17 Concept, that has been officially unveiled at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show.
The new concept was created to preview an upcoming crossover and comes with Caesium Blue exterior body, black accents and 23 alloy wheels. There are also LED headlights and F-Type inspired taillights. Inside the cabin there is a two-tone leather upholstery, aluminum and metal accessories. We also see a full-length center console that offers a futuristic infotainment system and a Meridian audio system.
This new Jaguar C-X17 Concept was designed under the all-new aluminum monocoque architecture dubbed iQ[Al]. The new platform is very light, strength and stiff and it will be used to underpin an upcoming mid-size premium sedan.
“The C-X17 sports crossover represents an exciting new direction for Jaguar. Its purpose is to highlight our all-new aluminum architecture. With this technical foundation, we will dramatically expand Jaguar’s product offering, market potential and customer appeal. This new philosophy will bring technology from our luxury products into an accessible price segment, and when combined with our new ultra-efficient engines, we will set a global standard. Add to these rational values, the class-leading dynamics, and the beauty and purity of form that Jaguar is renowned for, and we have the formula for a monumental leap forward”, said Adrian Hallmark, Jaguar’s Global Brand Director.
