Jaguar's latest concept is closer to production form than you may have previously thought.
When Jaguar unveiled its C-X17 Crossover Concept earlier this month at Frankfurt, it was immediately clear the UK automaker was dead serious on giving it the production green light. Although an exact time frame remains unknown, what’s for near certain is that a future production model won’t look a whole lot different than the concept. In fact, the latter looks to be at least 90-95 percent showroom ready, pending a few design modifications.
Rendering artist Theophilus Chin has just cooked up his take on what the C-X17 could look like in production form. What’s changed from the concept is a taller roof, enlarged front and taillights, increased ground clearance and smaller wheels. In addition, the rear hatch design and both front and rear bumpers have been somewhat simplified. There’s also a newly added rear wiper and side mirrors taken from another Jag model. If this is what Jaguar’s first crossover is going to look like once it hits showrooms, then we have very few if any big complaints.
