The new concept has a user-friendly interface with connected car technology and a digital display. Ssangyong also says it comes with new safety aids for pedestrians as well as drivers and passengers.
The concept is expected to be around 4630mm long, 1866mm wide, 1640mm high and has a 2775mm wheelbase. Those dimensions would pitch it in the same market as cars like the Skoda Kodiaq and Nissan X-Trail.
It will be powered by both petrol and diesel engines and would likely sit above a new Korando but below the forthcoming Rexton in Ssangyong’s line-up.
The XAVL – which Ssangyong says stands for ‘exciting authentic vehicle long’ – could make production, but if it does it is unlikely to be on the roads before 2020.
