JAGUAR C-X17 CONCEPT
Jaguar has at last dropped a first teaser for its upcoming SUV, ahead of an official unveiling event scheduled for next Monday.
But while the C-X75 never made its way to production, the C-X17 is expected to follow the F-TYPE previewing C-X16 into showrooms as Jaguar's first SUV.
The image released today hints at a curvaceous body with F-TYPE inspired tail-lights, suggesting a new standard for future Jaguar models.
The final name of the new model remains a secret for now, although it is known that Jaguar has trademarked the names XQ and Q-TYPE.
Along with Jaguar's coming midsized sedan, the so-called XQ will form part of Jaguar's push to match the success of partner Land Rover, which currently makes up around 80 percent of the two carmakers' sales figures.
It's unknown what technologies the new models will share with Land Rover, although we can likely expect the new Range Rover's aluminium-intensive Premium Lightweight Architecture to underpin both cars.
Engines will likely include a 2.0 litre turbo petrol, a 2.2 turbo diesel and the 3.0 supercharged petrol V6 used by the XF.
