In a well attended media event under massive crystal chandeliers with pulsing music and a mysterious atmosphere created by lights glowing and flashing through a well fogged stage, Jaguar revealed the 4-door CX17 Crossover to the world.
The important part of the reveal is not the CX17 body, beautiful as it is, but the platform that’s hidden underneath. The all aluminum chassis will serve as a foundation for a new generation of lightweight sedans and other vehicles beginning in 2015.
Jaguar Design Director Ian Callum did, however, hint that the CX17 may in fact make it to showrooms in the future. “One of the reasons we brought the car here is to see if we could get permission from people to take the brand into this space.”
