Jaguar Crosses Over

Years of unrelenting speculation via the British motoring press are finally coming to fruition: Jaguar is about to launch a crossover, and this concept, dubbed the C-X17, appears to be it.

While officially a concept, the Jag crossover is surely a done deal. Riding on a new modular architecture that will be shared with an upcoming small sedan (slotting below the XF), the crossover will be an important car for adding volume, particularly in key markets like China and Russia where demand for crossovers is strong. Expect a full reveal at the Frankfurt Auto Show next week.

    It's the end of (there's no W in) Jag-you-are as we know it. They should have done a conversion of the XJ X358 LWB and called it an estate, and left it at that.

    C-X17??? Sounds like a really large Mazda CUV

    In other tales from the Bizzaro World, the Vichy, Nazi's and browncoats took turns buying Jeep, Toyota is the All-American car brand, GM is the love child of American socialist industrial policy and Red Capitalism, and Russia is the perceived good guys in the world. A this rate, I expect peace to break out in the Jihadistan any minute, zombie Henry Ford to return to debut the Model U car, and for GM to make a car that doesn't kerplode at 37,000 miles.

      Russia isn't a good guy. Just the other day, Obama was outraged when Vladimir Putin unfriended him on facebook.
