A frontal shot of the Jaguar CX-17 Concept leaked yesterday, and now a revealing three-quarter view has dropped. It looks like an XJ's brother that's been hanging out too much at the local gym.
That's not necessarily a bad thing, as the current Jaguar lineup is probably one of, if not the prettiest of all the major manufacturer offerings. That being said, the CX-17 looks to be a "concept" in name only, as this thing looks entirely production ready.
The CX-17 will debut in the flesh at the Frankfurt Motor Show, so we'll have a better look at it then. I'm digging those massive front intakes, and I'm praying those LED surrounds make it into production (unlikely), and it does kind of look like a Mazda CX-5, and Jaguar may want to check with Mazda on any trademark infringement with both the name and the styling, but it's a design I can live with.
Sure, every soccer mom on both sides of the Mississippi probably can't wait to get their hands on one of these, but if this is what Jaguar has to build in return for the stunning F-Type and the rest of their current renaissance, is that the worst thing in the world?
