In an effort to target higher-volume vehicle segments, Jaguar is getting ready to introduce its first-ever crossover, and Autoweek reports that we could see it debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September. We've heard in the past that the new Jaguar crossover could carry the name XQ, but the report also mentions that the Q-type name is still in the running (now wouldn't Audi just love that?).

A little more clear than the crossover's name, AW says the cargo-friendly Jaguar should ride on the same platform as the upcoming Jaguar XS compact sedan rather than using a Land Rover platform. As for the on-sale date, it still sounds like the XS will hit the roads first in 2015 with the crossover model due out in 2016.

      "now wouldn't Audi just love that?" What about Infiniti? I think they have a bit more invested in the letter Q than Audi does at the moment.

        Not only that, it appears to be a bad investment. Number two rule of automakin': do not follow in Infiniti's footsteps. There first is, of course, that an automaker should never emulate Ford's apparently designed desecration of the once proud Lincoln brand.

      Even before jaguar and land rover ended up together , I always considered the range rover to be the SUV equivalent of jaguar. After JLR came along it seemed simioffical that land rover is the jaguar 4x4 and.

        More the merrier, right? Audi, Porsche, Skoda and VW make SUVs. Now Lambo is adding as well. Jaguar could try to make "sporty" crossovers - while LR could focus on off road ability - in theory.

          There is too much overlap under VWs umbrella. I have given up on them because of that.

      They should be able to tap into the Cayenne and Land Rover market, these people love to be different and want what others dont have.

      An suv intro would be a prefect move for Aston Martin.....I am not so certain as to how this would play out for Jaguar.

        Aston Martin is a sports car manufacturer. An SUV would be great under the Lagonda brand. Just not Aston Martin itself.

      Oddly enough this might work in today's SUV market, but for now it just doesn't feel right. They already have Land Rover. I'll wait 'til I see it, but it better be good. Otherwise Jaguar will get roasted for it.

      I guess Jaguar will be more focused on on-road performance with marginal off-road capacity, similar to the BMW X3.

      I like the idea, but please not another Q name. It's ok that Audi has them, but now all Infinitis will have them. Not a good idea to have their SUV line stand out name-wise.
