South Korean automaker SsangYong is teasing their XAV-Adventure and XLV-Air concepts which are bound to show up in Frankfurt later this month.
First up, the boxy XAV-Adventure represents a fresh interpretation of the Korando and probably acts as a sneak preview of the fourth generation which should be out sometime next year taking into account the current model has been on sale since 2010 (and facelifted in 2013). SsangYong says the concept targets active and young people and offers true off-road capability and maximum drivability.
As for the XLV-Air, this one offers a first glimpse of next year's seven-seat Tivoli which will have a longer wheelbase to accommodate the two extra seats. It will also have a larger trunk capacity and just like its five-seater sibling will be offered with either a 128 PS 1.6-liter turbo gasoline engine or a 115 PS 1.6-liter turbodiesel. These two will be mated to a six-speed manual or an optional six-speed Aisin automatic sending power to the front wheels as standard, but an optional AWD system will be offered at an additional cost.
Aside from these two concepts, SsangYong will exhibit in Frankfurt the diesel-powered five-seater Tivoli crossover.
