SsangYong unveils XIV Range
At the Paris Motor Show 2014
SsangYong XIV-Air and XIV-Adventure
The SsangYong XIV-Air and the XIV-Adventure are two more in a long line of SUV's developed by SsangYong. The XIV-Air and the XIV-Adventure have been designed and built to be even more stylish and packed full of the latest technology including a Stop/Start fuel saving system, three mode smart steering with electric power assistance as well as an all wheel drive system.
The XIV range will also feature a ventilated drivers seat, digital dual zone air conditioning, rear view parking camera and a smart Bluetooth audio system as well as many other comforts to give drivers a premier driving experience. You will have a choice between a 1.6 litre petrol and a 1.6 diesel Euro 6 engines that ensure for low CO2 emissions as well as the option to choose from a range of combinations of 6-speed manual and automatic transmissions.
Style and Substance
Inspired by SsangYong's new design philosophy 'Nature born - 3 motion' the XIV-Air will feature a targa T-top roof which is cited as being "for drivers and passengers who enjoy nature within their daily life." The XIV-Adventure features prominent design cues for greater practicality including a heavy duty bumper protector, purposeful roof rack and search light.
Inside the XIV range will see a two tone colour-way of white and dark blue with a central fascia to provide a futuristic feel. You will be able to choose between an illuminated instrument cluster or the 'super-vision', along with a LCD display for the trip computer which will also feature a whole host of other important information. To create an even greater driving experience, users will be able to choose between different mood lighting.
The XIV range will not be just style over substance as both models will also feature a host of safety equipment such as an electronic stability programme (ESP) which continually monitors the road conditions and vehicle's status, adjusting speed, engine output, balance, braking and steering at the point when a driver may be about to lose control. Hill Start Assist, Emergency Stop Signal and airbags throughout the SUV add to the safety precautions.
Although no specific date has been set, SsangYong plan to release the XIV range at some point in 2015.
