LIV stands for “Limitless Interface Vehicle”, which is SsangYong speak for “unlimited high performance and the value of large premium SUV concept.” If you didn’t quite understand that, don’t worry, neither did we.

The renderings show a well-proportioned vehicle, quite similar with the SIV-1 concept. The side creases and the front end, especially in its lower part, remind of the smaller SUV study.
