SsangYong XUV 1 Concept heading to Frankfurt Motor Show image

A new compact crossover concept made by SsangYong under the XUV 1 name will make its official debut at this year’s Frankfurt Motor Show, after the unveiling of the SUT 1 in March.

According to the South Korean auto maker, the XUV 1 is made as a CUV (Crossover Utility Vehicle) with new seating layouts as 1+1+2 or 1+3, highlighting the flexibility of the latest SsangYong platform technology.

“All this versatility comes within the confines of a compact B segment sized vehicle, a sector which has experienced rapid growth in crossover models in recent years. Offering the high seating position and rugged feel of a full sized SUV without any compromise in running costs, crossover models on a supermini scale are fast becoming the ideal motoring solution for today’s driver”, as the manufacturer explains.

The XUV 1 Concept has extensive glass areas along its curved bodywork, with the windscreen extending uninterrupted to the C-pillars.

The Asian automaker hasn’t released any extra details about its new concept so we will have to stay tuned to the Frankfurt Motor Show in September.
