Spyshots: Jaguar QX Crossover Test Mule Caught Testing

If you're looking for a compact premium SUV, chances are you're considering the BMW X3 or Mercedes GLK. For years, Jaguar has thought about offering a crossover, the perfect blend of all the refinements you find in one of their sedan and the raised suspension of a Range Rover.

Thanks to the success of the C-X17 Concept, this idea is becoming a very sexy production reality. But while the concept was a widespread success due to beautiful curves, the chassis tasked with the development of the production model is like Frankenstein's monster. Patchy camouflage, body parts from the XF and the suspension from a tractor make this one of the strangest mules ever.

CUV? No, this is like a SUS, a sports utility sedan! It looks like one of those crazy donks from Florida!

To avoid being called a Range Rover copycat, Jaguar says this crossover will actually be based on their own, all-new aluminum architecture.Should we care? If the F-Type is anything to go by, this will be the CUV you buy with your heart, not your head.
