Nithyanandh K,

As a toddler, those wheeled machinery fascinated me even before I knew what they’re called as! So here I’m, petrolhead by birth, Mechanical engineer by qualification and automotive reporter by profession!

Slated to premiere in 2016.

The production version of the Jaguar C-X17 SUV has been spotted for the first time in the U.K. by Auto Express reader Mr. Phil Mulin.

The Jaguar SUV will be powered by the Ingenium range of petrol and diesel engines.

The test mule masquerades as an extended Range Rover Evoque but a wider track and the front grille are consistent with the C-X17 Concept. The crossover which is slated to be ready by 2016 is based on the iQ modular aluminium architecture which also underpins the new XE sedan.

The Ingenium family of four-cylinder petrol and diesel engines will be under the hood. Jaguar has just commenced production of the first member of the engine family, a 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo diesel, at its brand new powertrain facility at Wolverhamton, UK.

Like the XE sedan, the SUV will be Jaguar’s volume oriented model. The production version of the Jaguar C-X17 is expected to have a starting price of 33,000 pounds (around INR 32.37 lakhs).

Expected Price: 33,000 pounds (around INR 32.37 lakhs)
