SsangYong will showcase its new XIV-2 ‘convertible’ concept car at the 82nd Geneva Motor Show in March, a successor to the XIV-1 concept presented at IAA International Motor Show, Frankfurt 2011.
SsangYong is developing the XIV-2 concept as a CUV (crossover utility vehicle). A strategic model for the global market, its styling cue is based around ‘a special experience with fun’, and blends the characteristics of a robust and powerful SUV with the dynamic style of an open top sports coupé.
XIV-2 features a one-touch automatic opening soft-top roof to provide ‘wind in the hair’ driving enjoyment, and with its futuristic and aesthetic appearance is designed to appeal to the younger generation. Measuring 4,166mm (length) x 1,820mm (width) x 1,566mm (height) and with a 2,600mm wheelbase, XIV-2 will be equipped with eco-friendly, fuel efficient 1.6-litre diesel and petrol engines meeting Euro VI emission regulations.
