| 08/11/2013 | 0 Comments

Jaguar’s acclaimed C-X17 sports crossover concept vehicle has premiered at the Dubai International Motor Show 2013.

Jaguar_C-X17_Dubai_3The C-X17 has been created as a design study to introduce Jaguar’s all-new advanced aluminum architecture, on which an exciting new range of future Jaguars will be built, beginning with a new mid-sized C/D segment sedan in 2015.

Jaguar_C-X17_Dubai_4Power will be provided by engines with a wide range of capacities and output. These will include the all-new four-cylinder high-output petrol and diesel engines to be built at Jaguar Land Rover’s new engine manufacturing facility in the UK, as well as the powerful V6 petrol engine in the F-TYPE, which will provide best-in-class specific power output thanks to the lightweight architecture. These attributes will enable Jaguar to offer a wider variety of vehicles, with exhilarating performance, top speeds of over 300 km/h (186 mph), as well as emissions below 100g of CO2 per kilometre.

Jaguar_C-X17_Dubai_1At 4,718mm long and 1,649mm tall, its dimensions are clearly that of a crossover, yet in its design it shares strong family traits with Jaguar’s current range. A low-sitting stance and overall profile combine with 23-inch alloy wheels to give the C-X17 a sporting, aggressive presence, while the LED headlamps, J-shaped running lights and frosted-glass foglights set into the large front intakes add to the C-X17’s purposeful intent.

Jaguar_C-X17_Dubai_2The interior of the C-X17 features four individual bucket seats, which are luxuriously appointed, yet designed for a sculpted, lightweight appearance. The car’s unique roof features contoured vanes that provide a distinctive ‘elliptical’ panoramic view to the C-X17’s passengers, while retaining the roof’s sleek appearance from the exterior. Two additional rear-mounted leisure seats incorporated in the boot floor swing out for recreational use. Accessories that support an active lifestyle, such as a torch and a camera, are positioned in storage compartments in the boot.
