SsangYong will use the upcoming Geneva Motor Show to showcase a new SUV concept called XAVL.
Using the Korando as inspiration, SsangYong is preparing to unveil a new SUV concept at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2017. The XALV, standing for eXciting Authentic Vehicle Long SUV, is a further interpretation of the XAV concept shown at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show and according to SsangYong, this new concept is a tough and masculine looking SUV concept that blends advanced convenience and the practicality of a multi-purpose MPV.”
The XAVL can seat up to seven passengers and few buttons are seen in the cabin. Instead, the concept features a centrally-mounted touchscreen and digital instrument cluster set in a modern-looking dashboard arrangement. SsangYong further adds that the concept features numerous safety aids for pedestrians and passengers.
In terms of powertrain details, SsangYong only states that the concept will be powered by both petrol and clean-burning diesel engines.
It’s not yet clear whether the SsangYong XAVL will make it to production, but if it does, it will sit between the Korando and Rexton in the South Korean automaker’s vehicle range.
