**Based on SIV-1 concept


Little information has been provided on what to expect on the type of engine the LIV-1 will have. Based on what we know and what we have seen, it may be similar to the SIV-1 which has an inline-4, 1.6 liter turbo engine, with the option of getting a twin turbo.

The LIV-1 is a good size SUV. The profile is sculpted with sharp lines right beneath the side windows, cornering above the wheelbase.

Fitted with large bumpers in the front to go with a small grill, the car gives a sleek look to go with its tall stance. The entire canopy is constructed of a full length glass, giving it a glasshouse look.


The interior is expected to have 5 LCD displays located in various positions. A 10 inch touch-screen display will be used as the central panel with 4 additional 7 inch monitors integrated onto the headrests.

It is intended that the LIV-1 provide a lounge like interior with glossy black trims, aluminum elements, and leather seating.

The SUV will feature multiple technologies to ensure maximum safety for its passengers. You will get a smooth ride and even control when driving on rough terrain.

In building the car of the future, the SsangYong will integrate connectivity with mobile devices. Owners will be able to use their tablets, phones and other smart gadgets to control some of the features of the car and provide entertainment for the passengers.

User interaction, communication, networking and remote access are the main aspects SsangYong Motors intend to improve on.
