New SsangYong XIV-2 Convertible Concept Crossover Debuts in Geneva [Updated]

| |

At last year's Frankfurt Motor Show, SsangYong displayed the XIV-1 Concept for a compact crossover in the likes of the Range Rover Evoque.

Now, the South Korean automaker has revealed a second body style of the study called the XIV-2 ‘convertible’ at the 82nd Geneva International Auto Salon.

Whereas the XIV-1 was a five-door model with "suicide style" rear doors, the XIV-2, (which stands for eXciting User Interface Vehicle 2), is a three-door crossover featuring a one-touch automatic opening soft-top roof that incorporates the rear window and rolls back in a similar way to Fiat's 500C.

The Korean automaker says that the second concept was designed to appeal to the younger generation.

The XIV-2 measures 4,166mm (190.9-in.) long, 1,820mm (71.6-in.) wide, 1,566mm (61.6-in.) tall and rides on a 2,600mm (102.3-in.) wheelbase. SsangYong says the concept has been designed to be equipped with 1.6-liter diesel and petrol engines.
