Ssangyong XLV concept unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show

Ssangyong XLV concept unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show

Ssangyong has finally taken the wraps off its new crossover concept, the XLV, at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show. The XLV or eXciting Smart Lifestyle Vehicle is a seven-seater SUV based on the 2011 XIV-1 concept and will spawn off production models for both Mahindra and Ssangyong. The testing mules of the car have been spotted quite a few times in India and China and we expect the car to be launched by 2015.

 

Depicting Ssangyong's new design philosophy, ‘Nature born 3 motion’, the XLV features an aggressive front end with the bumper integrating LED strips. Angular lines flank the thick C-pillar moving on to wrap-around tail lights, which mould into the flared wheel arches. The car has a raised suspension, underbody protective cover and side sills on the front fender which give it the typical urban SUV look. Interiors get a refreshing two-tone design and the dashboard gets an orange red trim with honeycomb graphics. The XLV accommodates seven passengers in a unique 2+2+2+1 seating arrangement with the seventh seat sliding between the second and third rows for optimum flexibility.

 

Since Mahindra acquired the Korean manufacturer, both the companies have been putting in a lot of efforts in trying to improve and become a global player in the auto industry. With the backing of Mahindra, Ssangyong now has a long list of acronyms to its credit, all of which denote a different concept. Recently, Mahindra had revealed that both the companies were jointly developing engines which will be first seen in Ssangyong’s X100 compact SUV, the five-seater production model of the XLV. The compact SUV will be sold as a Mahindra in India and will go up against other compact SUVs like the Ford EcoSport and Renault Duster. Despite being the only seven-seater compact SUV on sale in the country, the Mahindra Quanto hasn’t exactly tasted much success, but with this product, the Mumbai-based manufacturer hopes to grab a bigger bite of the segment.
