Ssangyong has showcased their new XIV-2 convertible crossover concept car at the Geneva Motor Show today. It previews a new model series the brand currently has in development that will include five-door, three-door, coupe and extended body styles.

Despite being labeled as a convertible, the XIV-2 concept retains much of its body shell and just incorporates a electronically operated folding fabric roof that appears conceptually similar to the style on the Fiat 500C.

The new concept has been showcased with two different four-cylinder engines, both of which can be mated with a six-speed automatic or manual transmission system. The 1.6-liter petrol engine generates 125PS (92kW / 123hp ) and emits up to 127g/km of CO2 emissions whilst the diesel engine of the same displacement generates 130PS (96kW / 128hp) and emits 112g/km of CO2 gases.
