Added in: News


Mahindra & Mahindra Owned Ssangyong has teased a new concept which the Korean carmaker plans to unveil at the upcoming Frankfurt Motor Show. The concept, namely XUV 1 is a new compact crossover.

The Concept XUV 1 uses extensive glass areas along with carefully curved bodywork to look ‘imposing without seeming to appear aggressive’ according to a company statement. The focus is on wrapping the windscreen and windows around in the glasshouse seamlessly.

The interior of the new Concept is said to be innovative too, introducing 1+1+2 or 1+3 seating layouts, deviating from conventional cabin design and highlighting the flexibility available from SsangYong’s latest platform.

The name Concept XUV 1 is derived from Excellent User Interface Vehicle 1. All major cabin functions are controlled via mobile devices and smart instruments, while the coach style door offers easy access to the cabin.

Ssangyong is suggesting that the vehicle, even with its SUV-ish lines and tech will be no bigger than a compact B segment vehicle. The vehicle offers a high seating position, a rugged feel, and other featuires of a full sized SUV, but within a size of a compact hatch.

Sounds like an interesting idea. We would wait for more details on this one keenly. Does it have you excited as well?
