2016 Jaguar SUV/Crossover mule spied with a modified Range Rover Evoque body

We saw the chassis testing model for Jaguar’s first crossover in December, wearing a modified XF body.

This time the testing continues in Northern Sweden and the mule is wearing a temporary Range Rover Evoque body with a huge front grille and bigger air intakes.

The prototype looks similar to next-generation Freelander prototypes we have seen for a while now, but it is quite different with the new bonnet, huge rectangular grille and wider wheel base.

The production model is expected to follow similar styling as the C-X17 concept which was introduced at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show.

This new model rides on a new iQ[Al] platform that will also underpin the upcoming XE saloon.

The engine line-up will be shared most likely with XE, meaning can expect new four-cylinder two-litre petrol and diesel engines. Range topping models could use bigger V6 engines.
