SsangYong has released a set of teaser images of its latest concept car, an SUV named LIV-2.
The new exhibit from SsangYong is a large premium SUV, which will be showcased at this year’s Paris Motor Show. Its name, LIV-2, stands for Limitless Interface Vehicle, and it represents the final concept car inspired by the Y400 development model. SsangYong will build a production version of the car, which will be released next year.

SsangYong has already specified that the model comes with an in-house designed 2.2-liter diesel engine, which complies with Euro 6 norms, and will provide efficient performance.

Customers will be able to choose a 2.0-liter GDi gasoline turbocharged engine for the production model that will be inspired by the LIV-2 concept.

SsangYong has also mentioned that the LIV-2 will feature a luxurious interior, which will be equipped with a suite of advanced communication technologies. While these elements have not been detailed, expect the latest concept from the South Korean brand to feature modern connectivity options.

We are referring to Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support, as well as an onboard 4G LTE Internet connection, Wi-Fi, and possibly a range of dedicated apps that can be run from a user’s smartphone through Mirror Link or similar technologies.

As you can observe in the teaser images, the interior of the concept car has four individual seats instead of a bench for the rear occupants. The tech elements are not detailed in the sketch published by SsangYong. Meanwhile, exterior design looks fresh, and seems to suit the new SUV well enough to have a chance of being attractive in this segment.

The creation of another SUV is not a surprise from SsangYong, as the oldest vehicle manufacturer in South Korea is specialized in cars with 4x4 traction systems. SsangYong was founded in 1954, and its the only specialist brand in its country that focuses on SUVs and 4x4 vehicles.

SsangYong is currently owned by Mahindra&Mahindra, an Indian corporation that holds a 73 percent stake in the South Korean automaker.
