The growing call for SUVs and crossovers makes manufacturers - which are a far cry from this segment - go for extremes. Jaguar decided to expand its lineup of luxury vehicles with the Q-type crossovers. Of course, the rivalry will be tough, since Audi Q5 & BMW X3 have already established a solid reputation in the market. The first guess-work changed to a comprehensive Jaguar Q-type review (XQ model), available for your consideration.
Q-Type Styling Details
Jaguar Q-type is based on Range Rover Evoque platform. The chassis of the crossover is all aluminum, whereas the bodywork boasts a sweeping profile. The hood received white LED headlights, a near-vertical grille, short overhangs, slim windows as well as gigantic wheels. The tail comes with short overhangs too and features a sport-like silhouette. Jaguar compromised on the trunk’s capacity, ensuring more space for the occupants.
Inside, the vehicle has a lot of compartments and storage options. The dashboard brags about an exclusive sensor central console & an innovative swiveling shifter of the gearbox. The 5-seater crossover is comfortable for all passengers, thanks to adjustable seats.
The driver might rely upon an advanced security system. There are such facilities as a trip computer that displays all vital data about the car, floor mats, stability & traction control, a parking assistant as well as Bluetooth phone connectivity. The last option allows the driver to communicate on the phone with hands on the steering wheel.
