Ssangyong XAV Concept unveiled in Seoul
While all focus was turned to New York, Seoul continues to be holding its auto display, where South-Korean auto makers are unveiling their newest theories. The Ssangyong XAV is the company's latest design research, a tough-seeking compact SUV.
With a few parts that may resemble the Toyota FJ Cruiser, the XAV is truly a layout throwback to the 1996 Ssangyong Korando, famous because of its flared fenders and big corner lamps. While it might not have been the most likely option for retro inspiration, the XAV does a commendable job of choosing a layout widely regarded as utterly nasty and deciphering it in contemporary type.
Ssangyong claims XAV stands "for interesting Bona Fide Vehicle" and is made for outdoorsy lifestyle kinds. Among the more remarkable layout signals is a tiny lockbox incorporated to the back hatch. Smart storage choices are peppered through the inside at the same time.
The idea is fitted using a 1.6L four-cylinder driving the rear wheels through an automatic transmission, but an electronic 4WD system can theoretically power the front wheels as properly.
Ssangyong is 70-percent owned by Mahindra & Mahindra Limited, an Indian auto-maker recognized because of its sport utility vehicles.
