Jaguar crossover mule (production version of the C-X17 concept) spied

concept as a design study made its debut back in September with all-new advanced aluminium monocoque architecture, codenamed iQ[Al], on which a range of future Jaguars will be built.

The fist car to use the new architecture is a new compact saloon, which will be called most likely XS and the second one is Jaguar’s first crossover that has just started public testing and here we have our first pictures.

The mule of this new crossover has a heavily modified XF body, similar to XS mules we have seen earlier this year.

This early stage prototype does not reveal any of the upcoming design, but we do get to see a quite short wheelbase, huge wheelcases and a higher ground clearance.

This new crossover is expected to use a wide range fuel efficient four-cylinder petrol and diesel units. Top of the range models are also likely to use a V6.

We expect to see full body prototypes sometimes next year with a public debut most likely in late 2015.
