The Jaguar SUV/Crossover (C-X17) may still be being billed as a concept, but Jaguar have given it yet another outing at the Brussels Motor Show.
The Jaguar SUV Crossover arrived at the Frankfurt Motor Show last year as a ‘Concept’, although it’s clear Jaguar has plans to make it a production reality.
That was given more credence with a new version of the Jaguar SUV arriving at the Dubai Motor Show in November with an all new Liquid Metal paint job (that looked better than the debut car’s Jaguar Racing Blue car) and an outing for the C-X17 at the Guangzhou Motor Show with a gold paint job as Jaguar continued to garner feedback for their SUV/Crossover plans.
Now Jaguar has arrived at the Brussels Motor Show with yet another colour take on the C-X17 – this time Italian Racing Red – although, as far as we can tell, there are no other changes to the C-X17 from the original car’s appearance.
That means the interior is a four-seat job (unlike the C-X17 at Guangzhou which got a five-seat configuration) with the same hints at Jaguar’s saloons and F-Type in its styling, lots of leather, touch-sensitive surfaces, fold-out picnic tables in the boot and a big panoramic roof and concept-sized alloys.
These constant outings for slightly titivated SUV/Crossover Concepts makes it clear Jaguar are heading to production with the C-X17 – and a saloon, coupe and estate version – based on the new iQ[Ai] platform.
The sooner the better, although any new Jaguar is probably not going to hit showrooms before early 2016.
