PostHeaderIcon 2017 SsangYong Rexton Goes on Trans-Eurasia Trail to Reach UK

In what’s probably their most elaborate publicity stunt yet, Korean car maker SsangYong sent the new 2017 SsangYong Rexton on a 13,000 km journey from Korea to the United Kingdom. This Trans-Eurasia trail marked the launch of the SUV in Britain and showcased its ruggedness and durability. 

Five 2017 SsangYong Rexton SUVs set off from the factory in Korea, made a trans-continental trek via Beijing and the Silk Road, crossing ten different countries, including China, Kazakhstan and Russia, and arrived in Frankfurt last month for the IAA motor show. Two of them then continued the journey until they reached SsangYong Blenheim Palace International Horse Trials in Oxfordshire.

This has been an apt challenge for the 2017 SsangYong Rexton SUV to prove its worth as a durable, capable utility vehicle. God knows it’s not going to get bought on its looks, so it’s good that it at least offers those qualities for the starting price of £27,500. The new Rexton in powered in UK-spec model by a 2.2 litre turbo diesel engine delivering maximum power of 181PS and maximum torque of 420Nm, with a 6-speed manual or 7-speed Mercedes-Benz automatic transmission, and with a 3.5 tonne towing capacity.






Mr Johng-sik Choi, CEO of SsangYong Motor who travelled to Blenheim Palace to greet the teams, said: “This all-new, fourth generation Rexton is a major step forward for the brand.  The Trans Eurasia Trail gave us the ultimate test drive opportunity, and a superb way to launch the car in Europe.  This was a huge challenge for the cars and their drivers, and the ultimate test of performance and reliability.  The cars equipped themselves brilliantly.”

PostHeaderIcon SsangYong's Never-Ending Run Of Concept SUVs Needs To Stop

You would think that at some point in the past five years, the never-ending deluge of Ssangyong concept SUVs would stop and the Korean automaker would finally show a production version of some kind. It shouldn’t be that hard to do, right? Well, guess again because Ssangyong is headed back to the Geneva Motor Show with yet another concept SUV that it’s touting as “a new vision for the brand’s SUV of the future.” We’ve heard that line before.

In any event, the new concept is called the XAVL and from what CEO Johng-sik Choi tells us, it’s an evolved iteration of the XAV that the company unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show back in 2015. You read that right. The XAVL Concept is an evolved version of a previous concept. Color me bewildered because that’s exactly how I’m taking this.

To be fair, the XAVL does have some redeeming qualities. It’s a lot better to look at than the rolling monstrosity that was the XAV. The front section has a more balanced look to it, although those massive skid guards are still a sight for sore eyes. There’s a natural masculinity to it too that seemed too forced on its predecessor. The same is true with the rear section. It’s got nicer lines and a more streamlined taillight design, much better than the confused mess on the XAV.

If Ssangyong’s objective for the XAVL is to re-do the XAV and mask it under the premise of automotive design evolution, then consider the job well done. But at some point, these concepts have to stop, at least if the company wants to be taken seriously. We need a mind-blowing production SUV that you can be proud to call your own.

Otherwise, the jokes will keep on coming, as they have been for quite some time now.

Come on, Ssangyong. I’d like to think that you’re better than this.

PostHeaderIcon The SsangYong LIV-2 Proves That You Don't Have to Sacrifice Luxury to go Off Road

SsangYong Motor Company just publicly unveiled its LIV-2 (“Limitless Interface Vehicle 2”) concept at the 2016 Paris Motor Show, and according to the automaker, it offers substantial off-roading capability. At the same time, the exterior body panels carry the marque’s new “Dignified Motion” design language, which at first glance, might appear at odds with the crossover’s off-road worthiness, right? Because after all, how does one appear dignified while slogging through the great outdoors? SsangYong says it has a solution.

SsangYong is the self-proclaimed leader when it comes to producing SUVs and 4x4s in its native land, so the LIV-2 has a few pretty big expectations set up for it right at the off. That said, it does come with a few very good features to enhance its off-road worth.

Under those slick body panels, you’ll find classic body-on-frame construction. Providing the stick is the company’s very own four-wheel drive system, which is fed by a diesel engine producing as much as 420 Nm (310 pound-feet of torque) at 1,500 rpm. So far, so good.

Mounted under the nose and tail, you’ll also find silver skid plates to protect vulnerable mechanicals, while inside is an “intelligent interface” for better car-driver communication when out on the rough stuff.

Now for the luxury half of the equation. Ingress and egress is assisted by electric side steps, while the whole cabin uses a layout that emphasizes the individual seats positioned in the rear. Speaking of seats, expect reclining seatbacks and a massage function, as well as leather upholstery. Piano black trim, adjustable mood lighting, and copious tech round out the package. Finally, that off-roader rubber you see in the corners is outfitted with a “differentiated angle and layered tread pattern” to keep it quiet.

Still, the proof is in the pudding. We’ll withhold our final judgment until we get a real look at this thing’s cabin space – not to mention how it handles a little rock crawling action.

PostHeaderIcon SsangYong LIV-2

Korean automaker SsangYong just released a set of images depicting its latest concept vehicle, the LIV-2. Slated for a full public debut at the Paris Motor Show in a few weeks, the LIV-2 is framed as a “large premium SUV” that’s expected to replace the current Rexton mid-size SUV when it reaches production form sometime next year. The concept is a preview of the upcoming model’s new styling, both inside and out, plus the technology added for safety and entertainment. Customers will get to choose between diesel or gasoline power under the hood.

The LIV in LIV-2 stands for “Limitless Interface Vehicle,” which is a bit vague, but that’s to be expected. This is actually the second iteration of the LIV theme, with the LIV-1 concept breaking cover a few years back at the 2013 Seoul Motor Show. The LIV-2 is said to be the final variant of the Y400 development model (Y400 is the model’s internal product code at SSangyong).

Basically, this is the idealized iteration of Ssangyong’s flagship SUV, a critical model for a company aiming at bringing sturdy (but comfortable) off-roaders to markets like South America, Russia, and China. We don’t have all the details quite yet, but read on for our take on what should show in Paris.

PostHeaderIcon SsangYong Joins Electric Vehicle Segment With Planned EV SUV For 2019

When you think of Korean automakers, the first two names that immediately come to mind are Hyundai and Kia. Lost in the large shadow cast by these two automotive giants is SsangYong, a company that may have been best known in this part of the world as having been saved from collapse by Mahindra & Mahindra in 2010. Now that it’s back on a better footing, SsangYong is gearing up to join the electric vehicle ranks with the introduction of an EV SUV by 2019.

SsangYong CEO Jong Sik Choi made the proclamation during the launch of the brand’s new Tivoli XLV model, saying that the model, codenamed the C300, will be offered in a number of different powertrains, one of which would be the company’s first fully electric powertrain. It was previously thought of that the Tivoli SUV would get first dibs on the EV powertrain, but the company’s decision-makers opted to wait a little longer to further refine the gasoline engine version so that it could meet new emissions regulations that are scheduled to take effect in 2019. A report from Auto Express also indicated that the model will get another variant with that model being powered by a new 1.5-liter turbocharged engine that will combine to form a 48-volt “mild hybrid” powertrain. As far as aesthetics go, the model’s design is being tipped to be based on SIV-2 Concept that was showcased at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show.

It’s become an open secret that SsangYong has high hopes for this new SUV and it’s looking at the model as the one that could spearhead the company’s ambitious plan to increase its sales volume to 200,000 units, a major step up from the 144,764 units it sold in 2015. Whether it accomplishes that or not is still up in the air, but credit should go to SsangYong for taking this leap into the world of electric vehicles.

PostHeaderIcon SsangYong Tivoli XLV

Launched in 2015, the SsangYong Tivoli is a mini SUV built to compete with the likes of the Nissan Juke and Kia Soul. Based on the popular Korando as far as design is concerned, the Tivoli is SsangYong’s first new model under Mahindra & Mahindra ownership and it is named after the Italian town of Tivoli, which can be read as “I love it” in reverse. Under development for three years, the crossover was introduced in South Korea in early 2015 with a choice of small-displacement, gasoline and diesel engines. Built in its home country, the Tivoli is exported in several markets in Asia and Europe.

In 2016, SsangYong has expanded the Tivoli family by offering a longer version of the mini SUV. Called the Tivoli XLV, it features a longer body, a roomier interior, and the enhanced practicality that enables it to compete against larger crossovers. Previewed by the XLV Air concept at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show, the production model is set to go on sale in Europe and the United Kingdom this summer. SsangYong hopes to sell more than 100,000 Tivoli crossovers by the end of 2016.

“Tivoli has been praised universally for meeting a number of customer requirements, not least its ability to carry five adults in comfort and with one of the largest boot capacities, while many other cars in the sector are regarded as being a ‘down-size’ too far,” said Paul Williams, CEO of SsangYong Motor U.K. “Now SsangYong has gone a step further by launching an extended car to provide even more carrying capacity and practicality. This was shown as the XLV Air concept at the IAA motor show in Frankfurt last year, and from the extremely favorable feedback received, took the decision to put the car into production.”

PostHeaderIcon SsangYong XAV-Adventure Concept

SsangYong is a brand that a lot of Americans might be unaware of, since it isn’t sold here and lives in the shadow of bigger Korean automakers even in the markets where it is sold. It is noteworthy for being the company that built the Rodius, the first generation of which has been argued to be ugliest production car of all time, even uglier than the Pontiac Aztek. SsangYong has avoided taking too many chances with styling since then, but a newly unveiled concept has shown that someone at the company is still thinking about how to make SsangYong cars stand out.

Called the XAV-Adventure, the concept is meant to be a futuristic version of the Korando crossover currently being produced. The concept is both a design study and a platform for several advanced technologies that SsangYong has yet to introduce for production vehicles. SsangYong doesn’t appear to have any plans to change the Korando into this vehicle, but the right amount of follow-up on a vehicle like this could give the perpetual underdog a bit of a boost, and a chance to compete with the relative giant that is Hyundai, even if it doesn’t make it to the U.S.

PostHeaderIcon SsangYong Tivoli

Considering most of TopSpeed’s readership resides in the US, odds are few of you have ever heard of SsangYong. To help you get up to speed, here’s a brief crash course. Founded in the 50s, SsangYong is the fourth largest automaker in South Korea. A few years back, the company was bought by Mahindra and Mahindra Limited, and since then, SsangYong has been busy developing the Tivoli, sinking 42 months of development time and investing 350 billion Korean Won into its creation.

This compact SUV strives to be an entry-level vehicle that sports all the features of a mainstream crossover, but at a more affordable price. Named after the stylish town near Rome, the Tivoli was seen in concept form at four recent international motor shows, and was officially unveiled in Seoul last month.

On the surface, the SsangYong Tivoli appears to have the right combination of flair, equipment and affordability. But it takes a closer look to determine just how well this machine stacks up in a market flooded with competitors.
