Jaguar unveils CX-17
The first production Jaguar that is based on the all-new architecture will be on sale in 2015. This new, mid-sized premium sports sedan will be powered by engines with a wide range of capacities and outputs, all delivering inspirational performance and offering the latest innovations in fuel-efficient technologies without sacrificing drivability.

True, the cabin is more outlandish, but look closer and you’ll see it’s merely a de-cluttered, minimalist take on current Jaguar interior design. There’s still a transmission tunnel-mounted rotary gear selector, three digital dials for ventilation and temperature control (like on the F-type) and a Range Rover Evoque-esque sloped centre console containing a central infotainment touchscreen.

Inspirational performance, driveability and excellent fuel economy. C-X17 Concept offers a range of engines with differing capacities, including a new family of high-output and efficient four-cylinder petrol and diesel engines. C-X17 Concept has class-leading efficiency and CO2 emissions thanks to its highly efficient engines and all-new intelligent aluminium architecture.

Having said that, more than 80 per cent of the parts on the F-Pace are brand new. No other manufacturer uses aluminium as extensively as Jaguar because despite its evident benefit of weight and strength, aluminium is extremely hard to shape and work with.

The interior features four individual bucket seats, and two leisure seats finished in Connolly saddle leather that swing up and out of the cargo area floor for use when the car is stopped and the rear hatch opened. The C-X17 also comes equipped with an Interactive Surface Console made up of interconnecting touch screens, which allow the occupants of the vehicle to interact with one another via an in-car Wi-Fi network. This sounds like a useful tool for the soccer moms that want to keep little Johnny and Sally entertained.

WHAT IS C-X17 CONCEPT? C-X17 Concept is Jaguar’s first sports crossover concept vehicle and blends the seductive design and intelligent performance that are hallmarks of Jaguar, while delivering the benefits of a crossover’s assured driving position and high levels of flexibility. It showcases Jaguar’s all-new intelligent aluminium architecture, with the cars rolling off it engineered to deliver class leading quality, durability and reliability.

“The C-X17 sports crossover represents an exciting new direction for Jaguar. Its purpose is to highlight our all-new aluminum architecture. With this technical foundation, we will dramatically expand Jaguar's product offering, market potential and customer appeal. This new philosophy will bring technology from our top-of-the-range products into new growing premium segments, and when combined with our new ultra-efficient engines, we will set a global standard. Add to these rational values, the class-leading dynamics, and the beauty and purity of form that Jaguar is renowned for, and we have the formula for a monumental leap forward.” Adrian Hallmark, Global Brand Director, Jaguar

And if you’re wondering what you’ll find under the hood of these future Jaguars, we’ll tell you right now. The range of engine outputs for Jaguar vehicles featuring the advanced aluminum body will include all-new four-cylinder diesel and gasoline engines, and the powerful V6 engine seen in the Jaguar F-TYPE sports car. These engines will allow top speeds of over 186mph, as well as lower emissions.

Not as much as you’d think. Callum admits the glasshouse is slim, and the 23in wheels a necessity to enhance the C-X17’s ‘look-at-me’ wow factor on motor show stages. But in fact, nothing about the bodywork is outlandish enough to deny production feasibility – it’s even got proper door mirrors and handles.

Jaguar may be known for its pretty coupes and convertibles, but, just like other niche automakers, it is moving to the world of crossovers to feed the public appetite and save its own bacon.

The Motoring TV team caught up with Jaguar design director Ian Callum at the Los Angeles Auto Show to chat about the all-new CX-17 Concept.
