We've already sneaked our first head-on glimpse of the Jaguar XE small saloon but Jaguar has another new model up its sleeve. The XE saloon's compact SUV spin-off, based on the C-X17 concept, is on its way.
Our spies caught a prototype on test under a stretched Range Rover Evoque body, and the nose matches that of the C-X17 concept seen at last year’s Frankfurt Motor Show. The SUV is expected to hit dealers in 2016 – six months after the XE.
We checked the plates, and the car spied was registered in early February as a black Jag with a 2.0-litre petrol engine. We’re told the iQ[Al] architecture has been designed to take anything up to a V8, but the big sellers will be 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol and diesel turbos from a new ‘Ingenium’ engine family.
