In its quest to get its feet grounded in Europe, Korean car maker SsangYong unveiled a new concept car at the Geneva Motor Show.

The XIV-2 Concept is an evolution of the XIV-1 shown at 2011 IAA, with the main difference being the fact that it’s a convertible crossover.

XIV-2 (eXciting User Interface Vehicle 2) is designed and built for fun, says the company, and right now it’s the pinnacle of SsangYong design and technology. Speaking of the car’s specs, SsangYong mentions stuff like EuroVI compliant 1.6 petrol and diesel engines, Efficient six speed manual or automatic transmission, and Idle Stop and Go (ISG). It’s all of course to save fuel.

As for the fun part, well, the coupe-like SUV has a fabric roof with a one-touch automatic operating system to provide open air driving enjoyment with ease. Inside, the concept’s design continues the dynamic design with refined simplicity carried over from the XIV-1. Red colour highlights on the dials emphasise the SsangYong’s dynamics, with every part of the cabin styled to enhance driving pleasure.

Like every other car on Geneva show floor, the XIV-2 has an up to the minute infotainment system that pairs itself with your smartphone.
