The 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show has not even opened its doors to the public yet and we are already seeing a few cars due to be shown off at the event. Having already spoken of what we believe could be the best concept cars at this months motor show, we are very sorry that we forgot to mention the C-X17 crossover.
However, we thought we would make it up to you by looking over some of the main Jaguar C-X17 features, such as its interior, exterior and the specs. We have included a few images for you, along with a video of the C-X17 concept first look, which we have to say looks very sexy indeed.
This will be the first ever sports crossover for Jaguar, so you can understand why the company is excited, as are we. Some of you will wonder if they are doing the right thing, but if the C-X17 can enjoy just some of the success as the F-Type then Jaguar could be onto a winner.
Jaguar will rely on state-of-the art technology for the C-X17 concept by giving it an advanced unibody aluminum architecture, which they say will become the future for the company. This will allow Jaguar to manufacture numerous vehicles on the same production line, which would cut down on production costs, and in term be passed on to the consumer.
The Jaguar C-X17 interior will consist of four separate sculpted bucket seats, contoured vanes on the roof with a panoramic view, along with a mix of premium yet authentic materials finished by traditional craftsmanship using some of the more modern techniques.
As for the Jaguar C-X17 exterior this will be both dynamic and balanced as to keep the design balanced proportionally. The car will sit higher than other Jaguar’s off the ground, although it will come with low-profile tires, which seems a little strange for a crossover.
As for the Jaguar C-X17 engine specs, all we can tell you for now is that it will use the same engine as the V6 F-Type. However, Jaguar will give the C-X17 enhanced fuel efficiency while not compromising on power.
More details on the Jaguar C-X17 can be found by visiting the official website, but we can tell you that the aim is for a 2015 release window.
