Awarded the Best Concept Car Interior at Automotive Interiors Expo 2014 Awards
Jaguar was recently recognized at the Automotive Interiors Expo 2014 in Stuttgart, Germany. The Jaguar C-X17 graciously accepted the award for Concept Vehicle Interior Design.
Highest Honor for Designers
The Automotive Interiors Expo Awards judging panel has been filled with the world’s leading automotive journalists for the past three years. Each year the Awards continue to grow in prestige, becoming one of the most desired accolades in the automotive industry. Supporting all aspects of automotive interior excellence and showcasing the highest levels of innovation, the awards honor the world’s finest designers, innovations, and products.
“Jaguar continues to set the bar for developing an interior that envelopes passengers in luxurious, stylish and timeless finishes while seamlessly integrating innovative technology,” shares Duane Sanders, General Manager of Santa Barbara Auto Group. “The C-X17 sets the stage for the forthcoming XE sports saloon and based on the impressive feedback from the C-X17 we are sure that the XE will be just as impressive.”
Interactive Technology mixed with Traditional Premium Craftsmanship
The C-X17 concept vehicle featured interactive technology, but the technology alone was not what stood out to the judges. The ability for designer to blend the high-end interactive technology with the premium traditionally crafted materials was what made the C-X17 the clear winner. A unique Interactive Surface Console runs the length of the car’s center tunnel. Made up of a series of interconnecting touch-screens it connects the rear passengers with the driver. Using a secure in-car WiFi network, all occupants can upload pictures, video, and sound files to share with their fellow passengers or on social media outlets. No longer leaving the rear passengers in the dark, all four passengers are able to be immersed in a unified multisensory experience.
