Jaguar has highlighted the versatility of its acclaimed C-X17 sports crossover concept vehicle with the debut of a luxurious five-seater version at the 2013 Guangzhou Motor Show in China. 

The unique model, developed for China, features a bespoke ultra-luxury interior incorporating a range of new high-quality design elements in combination with innovative premium infotainment technology. 

Introduced at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September 2013, the C-X17 design study showcased Jaguar's all-new advanced aluminium monocoque architecture,on which an exciting range of future Jaguars will be built. The modular and scalable vehicle architecture, engineered and developed for Jaguar, is high-strength, lightweight, extremely stiff and incorporates innovative efficiency technologies. It enables flexible high-volume production while allowing creative design freedom and competitive interior packaging, without compromising the unique character, dynamics, performance and luxury that Jaguar is famous for. The new architecture will enable Jaguar to grow its product portfolio, targeting high-growth areas of the premium market. 

At 4,718mm long and 1,649mm tall, the C-X17's dimensions are clearly that of a crossover, yet in its design it shares strong family traits with Jaguar's current range. For instance, the grille is an evolution of the distinctive nose of the Jaguar XJ luxury sedan, while the sculptured haunch lines hint strongly at the award-winning design of the Jaguar F-TYPE sports car. 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. The latest C-X17's exterior is painted in a lustrous Liquid Gold liquid metal finish, with gloss black elements surrounding the windows, while the split-five-spoke alloys have a dark ruthenium finish. 

As a luxurious sports crossover, the latest C-X17 stretches the design possibilities of the segment by combining the character and driving experience of a luxury sports car with increased presence, style and flexibility. The concept represents the potential expansion of Jaguar's portfolio of body styles, with the associated enhancement of the brand's appeal to a global audience. 

"This latest version of the C-X17 has been specially developed for the Chinese market. The luxury sports crossover represents an exciting new direction for Jaguar and highlights the promise and potential of our all-new, advanced aluminium architecture - a technical foundation which will enable a dramatic expansion of Jaguar's product range as well as its customer appeal. Bringing premium technology to an accessible price segment, combined with new ultra-efficient engines, class-leading dynamics and Jaguar's renowned beauty and purity of form, we are poised for a monumental leap forward."
