Ssangyong SIV-1 crossover concept rendering - front three-quarter view

To follow Ssangyong's recent concept history from the XUV-1 shown at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 2011, to the XIV-2 shown at Geneva last year to the e-XIV concept shown in Paris is to trace the evolution of the firm's design growth. The SIV-1 concept coming to this year's Geneva expo caps them all and looks like a leap in confidence for the South Korean brand.

Ssangyong doesn't have much to say about it right now. SIV translates to "Smart Interface Vehicle," and we're told it is a "multi-interface" crossover that has a mobile audio system and four bucket seats. We'll find out more when we get to Geneva next month, but we like what we see so far. You can visit the press release below for a few more official words.
