5. Jaguar C-X17 concept
Like your mother hopefully told you, it’s what’s inside that counts. That’s especially true here because the C-X17 concept is much more than a preview of what might ultimately become a production crossover for Jaguar. The company insists that it hasn’t laid plans to build something like this yet, but its very presence in Frankfurt this week suggests otherwise.
Regardless of whether or not the company decides to build a sport crossover, and it really should, the platform is what counts the most here. Jaguar’s new scalable aluminum platform set to underpin an upcoming midsize sport sedan is hiding underneath. Most importantly, the brand promises to have models in showrooms by 2015 for global markets and 2016 for North America.
