2013 IAA: Jaguar C-X17 Concept looks mean and powerful in Frankfurt [Live Photos]

Article by Christian Andrei, on September 14, 2013

Jaguar has introduced the C-X17 – its first ever sports crossover concept vehicle -- at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show. It was built as a design study to showcase the brand’s all-new advanced aluminium monocoque architecture, codenamed iQ[Al], which will be used for a new range of models. Jaguar seeks to use this new concept for its future models.

The vehicle architecture, which was designed for Jaguar, is modular and scalable. It is high-strength, lightweight, very stiff and utilizes revolutionary efficiency technologies. It allows for flexibility in high-volume production but at the same time, there’s freedom in creative design. Its interior packaging is competitive without having an impact on Jaguar’s distinct character, dynamics, performance and luxury.

Jaguar is then able to expand its product range and to penetrate high-growth areas of the premium market. The Jaguar C-X17 explores the design possibilities of the sports crossover segment by sustaining the character and driving experience of a sports car while boosting its presence, style and flexibility.

The sports crossover concept stands for the prospective expansion of Jaguar's assortment of body styles, with the accompanying boost in its relevance and appeal to a bigger worldwide audience. Jaguar stated that it has created the formula for making a “monumental leap forward," citing its all-new aluminium architecture and accessible price segment that when combined with its new ultra-efficient engines, will allow the brand to set a global standard.
