Ssangyong Crossover Convertible Concept Debuting at Geneva Motor Show

The Ssangyong XIV-1 crossover convertible concept is likely to turn a few heads when it arrives at the Geneva Motor Show next month.

We’ve only seen teasers of the Ssangyong XIV-1 concept so far, but the car appears to be a mix of the Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet and the Fiat 500C drop-top. Like the Ssangyong XIV-1 concept that debuted in Frankfurt, the XIV-2 crossover concept has a blacked-out A-pillar and chunky, five-spoke wheels. While the Ssangyong eXciting User Interface Vehicle 2 retains roof pillars, the Ssangyong still provides an element of open-air driving thanks to the pulled back top. No word on whether a backup camera would be standard on the premium crossover to compensate for bad rear visibility.

The Ssangyong XIV-2 concept measures 164.0 inches long, far shorter than the 190.1-inch Murano CrossCabriolet that may have inspired it. We’d venture to say the Ssangyong might be the more attractive of the two vehicles. Powering the concept is supposed to be a range of 1.6-liter diesel and gas engines.

Ssangyong’s XIV-1 concept was a more traditional crossover, though all four seats could rotate 360 degrees and LED headlights were part of the package. View that orange concept, along with the XIV-2 concept sketches, below.
