SsangYong makes comeback with new XIV-1 concept crossover!
SsangYong, the South Korean fourth largest carmaker, is ready to make a full comeback with release of a 2012 Kia Soul-sized crossover vehicle.
Currently in the concept form, the XIV-1 is more than just a design study and previews the all-new B-segment crossover vehicle that is expected to hit the market within two years.
Initially, the yet-unnamed crossover vehicle from SsangYong will be sold in Korea, while later the carmaker will also offer it at markets outside Korea. This means, the model could soon appear in Europe, Russia and perhaps even in United States.
According to insider reports, SsangYong want to bring the CUV out as quick as possible!
Honestly, we really like the styling of a concept car. It looks by far the most appealing product SsangYong has ever created. Eventhough still in concept form, we are pretty sure that the final model will look pretty close to the concept released at the 2011 Frankfurt Auto Show, yesterday.
Hyundai, Kia watch-out, cause this is a striking crossover vehicle!
Here are a few additional images of the highly-attractive XIV-1 concept:
