Jaguar’s in the midst of researching and developing their first-ever crossover SUV models.
As of now, there are two types of crossovers due from the Coventry-based automaker, with the first being a midsize model, previewed by the C-X17 Concept. In addition to the midsize version, a new compact model is due as well to sit below said midsize version.
And through a new report from AutoExpress, word is the new E-Pace (as it’s guessed to be called) will be built in Austria after Jaguar-Land Rover signed a deal with Magna Steyr. Magna Steyr is also a renowned name for they’ve been responsible for building Mercedes-Benz’s Gelandewagen and Unimog trucks.
That said, if there were any skeptical thoughts about Jaguar’s future for build quality, this move could probably put some of those thoughts to rest as we know the Germans and Austrians don’t really skimp on build quality. But then again, the build quality of Jaguar’s future crossovers are dependent on how they’re contracted.
