The Possibilities of the Jaguar C-X17 Concept

June 1st, 2015 by


Whenever a new concept car is introduced, there’s potential for a lot of things. For good or bad, concept cars signal a change in the industry. When Jaguar introduced the Jaguar C-X17 concept vehicle at the Frankfurt motor show, the effect was immediate. We at Jaguar of Great Neck had instantly knew the game had changed. Let’s see how.

What a Jaguar Crossover Could Be

By blending seductive design and intelligent performance, the Jaguar C-X17 Concept shows off what’s possible in a Jaguar crossover. The benefits of a crossover’s confident driving position and ultra-high versatility are readily apparent, yet the performance and heart of the vehicle reminds one of the Jaguar F-TYPE. Less visible but no less important is the groundbreaking aluminum architecture that Jaguar has been working on.

The aluminum body composition is to be the standard for the Jaguar cars of the future, saving on weight to rocket performance to levels never before seen. It’s also modular in nature, providing flexibility in production, meaning there are opportunities for a wide range of models able to be built on fewer frames. This allows for Jaguar to maintain the integrity of the unique character design and vehicle dynamics while generating savings across the board.

The Jaguar C-X17 Concept embodies both the timeless sophistication of Jaguar with stylish, sporty, and exciting design styles of today. Clean lines and thrilling proportions create a balance of form while fuel-efficient technologies matching Jaguar performance maintain economic drivability. There’s really nothing not to love about the bright future of Jaguar.

Looking Ahead to Production

While the Jaguar C-X17 Concept was revealed in 2013 at the Frankfurt Auto Show, its descendants won’t hit the road until 2016. The brand-new Jaguar F-PACE vehicle, inspired by the Jaguar C-X17, is slated to arrive some time in 2016. It is to embody the spirit Jaguar revealed with the C-X17, with its striking and elegant design, responsive performance, and family practicality. It really is possible to have the best of all worlds!
