SsangYong XIV-2 (2012–2014)

Last updated 7 June 2016


SsangYong unveiled its new XIV-2 concept at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show. The crossover will be launched by 2014 and will come in various bodystyles including a five-door, a three-door coupe and an extended body version.

The XIV-2 is a actually a convertible with a one-touch automatic opening soft-top roof. It's the successor to the XIV-1 concept that was shown at the Frankfurt Motor Show last year and is said to blend the 'characteristics of a robust and powerful SUV with the dynamic style of an open top sportscoupe'.

Apparently the name comes from 'eXciting User Interface Vehicle 2' and the brand describes it as premium crossover. At 4,166mm long it is pretty much the same as a Nissan Juke, while power comes from 1.6-litre diesel and petrolengines with intelligent stop and go to reduce emissions and fuel consumption.

The 1.6-litre petrol model develops 125PS and emits 121g/km of CO2 with the standard six-speed manual gearbox. The 130PS 1.6-litre diesel is even cleaner with CO2 emissions of 106g/km. Both engines are available with a six-speed automatic gearbox.

Inside the XIV-2 has controls that are integrated into one central system and controlled using a central screen. There are four separate bucket seats and interior finishes including aluminium and carbon fibre.
