◾Designed for the next generation and those with an active lifestyle

Development concept
2015 Ssang Yong XAV-Adventure Concept
XAV-Adventure is the latest compact SÚV concept from SsangYong. It offers a glimpse into the future, and illustrates how the current Korando crossover could be reinterpreted as the fourth iteration of this long-lived and highly successful vehicle brand. (See note below).

The XAV-Adventure concept was showcased at the Seoul Motor Show earlier this year, and will help redefine the future direction of compact SÚVs produced by SsangYong. Together with Tivoli, these new vehicles are being designed to meet the needs of the more active younger generation, who require their cars to crossover between their daily transport needs, and the activities they pursue on vacation and at weekends.

Styling concept


2015 Ssang Yong XAV-Adventure Concept
XAV-Adventure is a true SÚV. Its chunky proportions and masculine body style draws on the look of those iconic 4x4 'trucks' of yesteryear: strong, robust and with a capacious, square and useable interior space to meet the needs of those who carry large, cumbersome sports equipment.
The design of the interior appears simple, yet is wide and highly practical. The blend of black and natural brown colours creates a contemporary and luxurious ambiance, while the design imaginatively reflects the requirement for practicality. By example, a storage compartment in the rear door enables the loading of all those extra items needed for a leisure activity trip.

The inner element of the carbon roof is a convertible canvas roof, and affords a wide-opening space that draws you closer to the natural surroundings while providing the pleasure of 'open top' motoring.

Performance

The vehicle is offered with the choice of 1.6 litre diesel and 1.6 litre petrol engines and is also equipped with a hybrid electric E-4WD system. The E-4WD system comprises a lithium ion battery and two rear mounted electric motors that give the option of two driving modes: hybrid fuel economy mode and hybrid performance mode. The system also provides for secure off-road and urban driving.

The car features the SsangYong 3S-CÚBE system. This includes a special sensing device, which together with a smart motion control system, electric air suspension and 'stereo vision', automatically determines the road conditions and adjusts the suspension for optimised ride comfort. On rough terrain, the suspension adjusts itself to make the ride softer while during high-speed driving, the suspension becomes firmer to increase car control by lowering the vehicle's ride-height to prevent roll and pitch.

The XAV-Adventure is engineered for real off-road adventure. It offers a high ground clearance and good ramp break-over angle, and is capable of water-wading and climbing steep gradients. Run flat tyres are another safety feature on the car, with the tyre pattern suitable for on and off road driving.

Note:


2015 Ssang Yong XAV-Adventure Concept
The first Korando - the name is derived from 'Korea can do', was launched in 1984, the second generation in 1996, and the current model in 2010; this was further enhanced in 2013.
