WHAT IS THE C-X17 CONCEPT?

The C-X17 Concept explores the idea of what a Jaguar crossover vehicle could be, blending 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.

THE BEAUTY OF JAGUAR

The C-X17 Concept had to be stylish, sporty and exciting. It had to stand out from the crowd, while retaining the sense of timeless sophistication that is typically Jaguar.

Jaguar Design Director, Ian Callum, says, ‘We designed the C-X17 from the ground up from a distinct set of principles, a deep sense of what makes a Jaguar car: exciting proportions, clean lines, balance of form. Assertive and powerful, yet with a beautiful sensuality about it, the C-X17 is boldly, distinctively Jaguar.’

CLEVER INSIDE

The C-X17 Concept’s cabin brings together innovative interactive technology with a modern take on traditional high-quality materials and British craftsmanship for true luxury and sophistication. The inviting design and overall usability of the interior, along with its versatility – including its extensive cargo space – means that it is as good for the family as it is exciting for the driver.

ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY

  1. REAR WHEEL DRIVE

    In normal grip conditions, the C-X17 Concept’s Instinctive All Wheel Drive system4 delivers traction to the rear wheels. This is unique in the Sports Crossover segment and helps provide the renowned Jaguar dynamic driving experience. The system continuously monitors the road surface to pre-empt and react to wheel slip for greater driver confidence and improved vehicle stability in low grip conditions.

  2. TORQUE VECTORING

    Giving the driver even more control and improved cornering, Torque Vectoring by Braking (TVbB) helps the vehicle maintain the desired path and reduces the likelihood of oversteer.

  3. REAR EXIT DETECTION

    Taking care of all occupants as they go to open the vehicle’s doors, the C-X17 Concept features Rear Exit Detection4. This advanced active driving aid warns of approaching objects that may be hidden in the passengers’ blind spot.

  4. FUEL ECONOMY

    Inspirational performance, drivability and excellent fuel economy. The C-X17 Concept has been designed to accommodate a range of engines with differing capacities, including a new family of high-output and efficient four-cylinder gas and diesel engines. The C-X17 Concept is engineered to have class-leading efficiency and CO2 emissions thanks to its highly efficient engines and all-new intelligent aluminum architecture.
