WHAT A HOTTIE: Yes, you read the headline correctly. This IS a SsangYong - the SIV-1 Concept - all set for the 2013 Geneva auto show in March.

SsangYong is not the automaker which usually creates visions of beauty and leaves you drooling at the sight of their vehicles driving by - but now take a look at this concept model...

Now you might think twice about the brand should it reach production stage.

NEW DIRECTION


The SIV-1 (Smart Interface Vehicle) will be unveiled at the 2013 Geneva International Motor Show on March 5 as 'a multi-interface crossover utility vehicle (CUV) that emphasises the company’s new design philosophy' – and about time, too.

Features include an auto system and four bucket seats. The exterior styling is like nothing ever seen on a SsangYong – think BMW cross VW cross Hyundai.

Confusing, perhaps, but sure is something to look at.
