The C-X17 Concept expected to become jaguars first SUV will not actually be an SUV.

A Jaguar SUV is not possible,” said Speth. “SUVs and 4x4s are for Land Rover. The Jaguar concept is far more road-orientated. It will need a different kind of name.”
Speth added: “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.”
So considering we know the C-X17 will use a similar platform to the XE, perhaps we consider it a Tall Hatchback XE? XE All Road LOL?

Does this mean that it will be pretty much an SUV but a bit more CUV-like? At this point I don't really care what they call it, it matters more what the car can actually do.
