A while after the very first blurry spy shot of the upcoming Jaguar SUV appeared, another shot has emerged with this image confirming the car’s identity as the British automakers all-new SUV.
Most significantly, this spy shot showcases the low-slung roofline of the new Jaguar SUV as well as its classic Jaguar taillights almost identical to the first generation Jaguar XF sedan. Other than those small details, few features about the Jaguar SUV are obvious except for the fact that it has an extremely high tailgate and a very small rear window. Additionally, we can see two small exhausts.
While the recently announced production ready Bentley SUV will be the world’s most expensive car of its type, the Jaguar SUV will target an entirely different market. Rather than cost hundreds of thousands of dollars, the Jaguar SUV is expected to start at just £31,000 thus making it the perfect rival for the BMW X3.
Development of the Jaguar SUV has been underway for over two years now and Jaguar has already begun secretly previewing the design of its new SUV to potential customers and Jaguar enthusiasts. It’s believed that the styling of the Jaguar SUV will be somewhat inspired by the Infiniti FX.
The new Jaguar SUV will hit the market a couple years after the entry-level Porsche Macan SUV hits the market sometime next year. Both cars will be similar in size and should feature similar standard and optional features. No name for the Jaguar SUV has been released, but it could be badged the Jaguar XQ.

ok so it is a XF in a SUV-suit?
I would say more of a cross-over than an SUV. Riding on what appears to be road tyres with little in the way of ground clearance unless the plan is to fit an ECAS system? Still I applaud Tata for developing and expanding the Jaguar brand!
