The C-X16 moves the award-winning Jaguar design language on to the next level. The exterior design is startling in its simplicity, defined by three â€˜heartlinesâ€™; the front wing crease, the rear haunches that wrap into the tail and the sweeping roofline.
The aluminum bodywork is wrapped as closely to chassis as possible. By stretching the main feature lines back from the focal point formed by the grille and pushing the wheels as far into the corners as possible, the car has a taut, poised-for-action stance that is unmistakeably Jaguar.
The C-X16 also showcases newly established Jaguar styling signatures such as the subtly rounded trapezoidal grill. Inspired by the C-X75 concept car and recognizably related to the current XF and XJ, this is the focal point for the front end of the car, providing instant rear view mirror recognition.
