STUTTGART, Germany - June 25, 2014: The Jaguar C-X17 has been honoured with an award for Concept Vehicle Interior Design at the Automotive Interiors Expo 2014 Awards.

The C-X17 concept was launched at the Frankfurt Motor Show as a design study to demonstrate the capabilities of Jaguar’s new advanced aluminium monocoque architecture, which will form the basis of the forthcoming XE sports saloon.

Jaguar Design Director Ian Callum said: “I am delighted that the C-X17 has won the award for Concept Vehicle Design at the 2014 Automotive Interiors Expo Awards. We worked hard to ensure that C-X17 had a cabin that was both innovative and hi-tech and yet also luxurious, stylish and timeless – in fact, it’s what we set out to achieve with the interior of every car that Jaguar makes, from the forthcoming XE sports saloon to the XF, XJ and F-TYPE.”

Hosted at Automotive Interiors Expo 2014 in Stuttgart, the awards honour the world's finest designers, innovations and products, championing all aspects of automotive interior excellence and innovation.

With a judging panel that boasts some of the world's leading automotive journalists, the Automotive Interiors Expo Awards is now in its third year, and continues to cement its place as one of the most sought-after accolades within the automotive industry.

Dean Slavnich, Editor of Engine Technology International and Co-chairman of the awards, said: “The C-X17 takes interactivity to a new level. The judges recognised how its concept interior is able to blend high-end interactive technology with premium traditionally crafted materials. The unique Interactive Surface Console brings interior automotive design right into the modern age, running the length of the car’s centre tunnel, and made up of a series of interconnecting touch-screens, the Surface Console connects rear passengers with the driver and front seat passengers via a secure in-car Wi-Fi network, so occupants can upload pictures, video and sound files from their mobile devices and share them with their fellow passengers as well as on all social media channels.

“Enabling sharing, both in terms of technology and information, between the occupants of the C-X17, the Interactive Surface Console puts as much focus on the rear compartment as on the front and immerses all four passengers in a unified multisensory experience.”
