The Jaguar C-X16 Concept represents a new direction for Jaguar as this concept could lead Jaguar to their first luxury SUV. Seems odd to think of a Jaguar as an SUV and some purists are dreadfully miffed.
“The concept illustrates the diversity of vehicles that could be produced using this architecture, which underpins the innovative future of the Jaguar brand.
Jaguar will also display its newly introduced production models at the Frankfurt Motor Show. These will include the recently launched ‘R’ performance models – the XJR and XFR-S – as well as the highly-acclaimed F-TYPE.” – – Jaguar Media
I’m not saying that the Jaguar C-X16 Concept is representative of the upcoming Jaguar SUV, but the plans are set for the SUV folks. The Jaguar C-X16 Concept SUV may sound like Jaguar fantasy, but patents have been purchased, (check out the Jaguar XQ story here) and testing is well under way. The scuttlebutt has it that this program got the green light a while back.
For now, we get this vague image and a promise that it’s something special and that Jaguar will stream the live pre-show reveal of the Jaguar C-X16 Concept to special guests on its Facebook page on Monday, September 9th.
Hope it’s as sexy as their recent designs.
The Jaguar C-X16 Concept will be on display at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show.
