SsangYong is developing the XIV-2 (eXciting User Interface Vehicle 2) concept as a premium CUV (crossover utility vehicle). A strategic model for the global market, its styling blends the characteristics of a robust and powerful SUV with the dynamic style of an open top sports coupé.

XIV-2 features a one-touch automatic opening soft-top roof for the convertible experience, and with its futuristic and aesthetic appearance is designed to appeal to the younger generation.

Measuring 4,166mm (length) x 1,820mm (width) x 1,566mm (height) and with a 2,600mm wheelbase, XIV-2 will be equipped with eco-friendly, fuel efficient 1.6 liter diesel and petrol engines meeting Euro VI emission regulations.
