It seems the British brand will be the latest luxury car maker to enter the lucrative market, as plans to reveal the Jaguar SUV Concept CX17 at this month's Frankfurt Auto Show were announced today. The SUV space is getting crowded; Bentley, Maserati and even Lamborghini have all green-lighted, or revealed concepts of SUVs in the past months.
At this stage Jaguar is being very secretive about the project, only saying that the CX17 will feature the brand's advanced new modular aluminium architecture. This next sentence is a clue though:
"The concept illustrates the diversity of vehicles that could be produced using this architecture, which underpins the innovative future of the Jaguar brand."
Jaguar SUV Concept previews expanding rangeThat most likely refers to an upcoming BMW 3 Series, Mercedes C-Class competitor which has been in the rumourmill for some time now. Jaguar has been quite open about expanding their range, but we probably won't see this particular future concept at Frankfurt.
