SsangYong Unveils SIV-1 Concept

/ Comments

Korean automaker goes in a relatively more stylish direction with this new crossover concept.

The ability to design something as unpleasant as the Rodius crossover van takes a certain skill, but South Korean automaker SsongYong has risen to that unfortunate challenge. However, its new SIV-1 Concept is a definite step in the right design direction. Standing for Smart Vehicle Interface, the SIV-1 crossover is a direct follow-up to the brand's XIV-1 from the 2011 Frankfurt show. The SIV-1 utilizes a special heat coating to increase driving safety in all driving conditions.

There's also a thin heat film coating for all of the windows and exterior mirrors to dispatch frost quickly. Aside from its attractive exterior lines, the interior has the brand's "Nature Born 3 Motion" design philosophy and features state-of-the-art IT devices and dynamic graphics on the instrument cluster. SsangYong didn't provide any details as to what's under the hood nor is there any word on a potential production version, but ignoring the unfortunately small wheels, the design itself is a welcome departure for a company that, let's face it, doesn't ordinarily produce vehicles that we'd call "stylish".
