The latest in a long line of SsangYong concept cars is the LIV-1 unveiled at the Seoul Motor Show. Like its predecessors, the LIV-1 is an SUV, and just like them, it has almost no chance of production. SY also seems to invent new names for these concepts, as this one is actually called Limitless Interface Vehicle. No idea what that means.

The LIV-1 is apparently designed to look robust and sporty, hence the large bumpers and slim pillars. It is not exactly a looker though not even if you squint. The interior too is designed to look functional, yet luxurious. It features high gloss piano black on the centre fascia and contrasting aluminium detailing.

The LIV-1 also gets its fair share of technology features. The car’s driver-vehicle communication interface is based on the 3S-Cube, the core of SsangYong’s future technology.  This combines the elements of Smart Link, Safe Way and Special Sense to allow the vehicle to be remote-controlled using a smart device and to provide entertainment both within and from outside the vehicle.

The car is also packed with displays, as SsangYong is adamant this is the way to utilize their user-vehicle interface. There are five displays, including a 10-inch monitor in the centre fascia and a 7-inch monitor in the headrest.

This is one of the most pointless concept vehicles we’ve come across in a long time. Sorry SY!
