Development work continues on Jaguar's crossover as our spies have caught a prototype undergoing testing on the Nürburgring.

Caught wearing a modified Range Rover Evoque body, the crossover will be have a familiar front fascia with a prominent grille and sporty air intakes. Unfortunately, there isn't much else to see but the pictures reveal the model will be significantly longer than the Evoque.

Jaguar has been relatively coy about the model but it will likely follow in the footsteps of the C-X17 concept that was introduced at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show. The model is also slated to ride on the new iQ[Al] platform which will also underpin the 2015 XE.

Engine options remain unconfirmed but they will likely be shared with the company's entry-level sedan. This means choices could include an assortment of four-cylinder Ingenium engines and a 3.0-liter V6 from the F-Type.

Be part of something big
