    "Don't Call It An SUV" Said Jaguar

      Jaguar's New SUV.. Yeah, Don't Call It An SUV

    Jaguar's SUV is just around the corner, but the company will not be calling it an SUV.

    “A Jaguar SUV is not possible. SUVs and 4x4s are for Land Rover. The Jaguar concept is far more road-orientated. It will need a different kind of name,” said Jaguar Land Rover boss Ralf Speth.

    Autocar says the model is being referred as a “sports crossover”, due to the model having a heavy bias towards on-road dynamics. The company is planing to have a better descriptor when the model is launched.

    Of course, it will be a vehicle which looks great and which has a strong stance, but the capability will be very different from a Land Rover. Mike Cross and his vehicle dynamics team will do an extraordinary job to make sure that it is sensational to drive on the road. It will be something special in that regard. Of course, it will not be anything like a sports car, but it will have a very specific character that sets it apart,” said Speth.

    .......Monica Bellucci can be the hot soccer mom MILF driving it.

     

    Then again, this Jaguar sports tourer (EU, not US) could actually be a good thing.

    I guess they had to say something to justify the design. SUVs are becoming more popular by the day and so car manufactures will start producing more of these models.
