SsangYong Concept Car XLV
SSANGYONG XLV CONCEPT
• New SUV concept car for the smart user who seeks individuality and practicality
• A real multi-role vehicle that blends robustness, durability and dynamic style
SsangYong unveils its new XLV concept (eXciting smart Lifestyle Vehicle) at this year’s Geneva
International Motor Show.
The XLV is a ‘smart user interface’ B-segment SUV concept featuring significantly lower CO2 emissions thanks to its mild hybrid system which combines a 1.6 litre diesel engine with an electric motor powered by a lithium ion battery.
XLV is the latest iteration in a series of multi-interface concepts which were first seen with the XIV-1 presented at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 2011. The XLV will become one of SsangYong’s core strategic models to underpin its future growth.
290mm longer than the XIV-1 concept, XLV provides accommodation for seven passengers in an innovative 2+2+2+1 arrangement, where the seventh seat slides between the second and third rows for optimum flexibility.
Showcasing SsangYong’s design philosophy of being ‘Robust, Specialty and Premium’, this latest concept projects a rhythmical and dynamic exterior design aimed at appealing to the smart user who seeks individuality and practicality to support their active lifestyle.
The XLV is a genuine multi-role vehicle for both urban driving and the pursuit of outdoor leisure activities.
The design of XLV has been inspired by the association of the power and dynamism of nature, and SsangYong’s new design philosophy, ‘Nature born – 3 Motion’, the central theme of the brand’s vehicle design language that was first articulated in the XIV concept series.
