2012-02-14 08:22

SsangYong is developing a convertible concept, the XIV-2, as a successor to the XIV-1 concept presented at the Frankfurt auto show in 2011.

The XIV-2 (eXciting User Interface Vehicle 2) concept is being tipped as a premium CUV (crossover utility vehicle).

SsangYong says its new concept is part of a global plan and the new model's styling is supposed to create "a special experience with fun".

The XIV-2 blends the characteristics of a robust and powerful SUV with the dynamic style of an open-top sports coupé.

CROSSOVER DROP-TOP: Three new platforms are in the works, but apart from the XIV's eventual production offshoot, it's unclear which markest the new design will target.

The concept features a one-touch automatic soft-top roof and its futuristic appearance is designed to appeal to a younger market.

The new model measures 4.1m in length, 1.8m in width and 1.5m in height with a 2.6m wheelbase. The XIV-2 will be equipped with either 1.6-litre diesel or petrol engines.

SsangYong will showcase its new XIV-2 ‘convertible’ concept car at the 82nd Geneva auto show in March 2012.
