The production version of the SsangYong XLV Concept that was showcased at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show will be unveiled in 2015. Word is that an unveiling could happen as early as January.

The production B-segment SUV – rumoured to be called the X100 – will take the fight to other B-segment SUVs in the market like the Ford EcoSport, the Nissan Juke, the Renault Captur and the Peugeot 2008. Ssangyong have confirmed that the production XLV will debut a new family of SsangYong-designed 1.6 litre petrol and diesel four-cylinder engines.

Measuring 4,430 mm long, 1,845 mm wide and 1,600 mm tall, it is slightly longer than the competition, and with good reason too. The XLV concept had three-row seating, with seats configurable in either a 2-3-2 or 2-2-3 arrangement, thanks to a middle seat that can slide between the second and third row.
