C‑X17 Concept is Jaguar’s first sports crossover concept vehicle and blends the seductive design and intelligent performance that are hallmarks of Jaguar, while delivering the benefits of a crossover’s assured driving position and high levels of flexibility. It showcases Jaguar’s all-new intelligent aluminium architecture, with the cars rolling off it engineered to deliver class leading quality, durability and reliability.
C‑X17 Concept’s highly advanced, aluminium-intensive modular architecture provides the flexibility to deliver a great range of models without compromising the unique character, design, vehicle dynamics, performance and luxury that Jaguar is renowned for.
The first production Jaguar that is based on the all-new architecture will be on sale in 2015. This new, mid-sized premium sports sedan will be powered by engines with a wide range of capacities and outputs, all delivering inspirational performance and offering the latest innovations in fuel-efficient technologies without sacrificing drivability.
C‑X17 Concept had to be stylish, sporty and exciting. It had to stand out from the crowd, while retaining the sense of timeless sophistication that is typically Jaguar.
Jaguar’s Design Director, Ian Callum, says, ‘We designed the C‑X17 from the ground up from a distinct set of principles, a deep sense of what makes a Jaguar: exciting proportions, clean lines, balance of form. Assertive and powerful, yet with a beautiful sensuality about it, the C‑X17 is boldly, distinctively Jaguar.’
C‑X17 Concept’s cabin brings together innovative interactive technology with a modern take on traditional high-quality materials and British craftsmanship for true luxury and sophistication. The inviting design and overall usability of the interior, along with its versatility – including its extensive loadspace – means that it is as good for the family as its is exciting for the driver.
