SsangYong will be bringing the LIV-2 SUV concept to the Paris Motor Show later this month. It’s the second and final chapter of the large premium SUV as a concept, before the “Limitless Interface Vehicle” transforms into a production car next year.

The Y400 development model first surfaced as the 4.87 metre-long LIV-1 concept at the 2013 Seoul Motor Show. This updated concept advances that car’s design language and helps to communicate the brand theme of “Dignified Motion”, SsangYong says.

The concept also features high levels of safety as well as a contemporary luxury interior equipped with a suite of advanced communication technologies, the Mahindra-owned 4×4 specialist claims.

Compared to v1, the LIV-2 sports a largely similar shape and face, with some reshaping and rearranging done. It’s the same story at the back, with some work done on the lights and diffuser.

The SUV will come with two engine choices. The diesel option is a Euro 6 2.2 litre engine that’s an in-house effort. It will be offered alongside a new 2.0 litre GDI turbo petrol engine.

SsangYong is also readying a smaller SUV that will set between the production LIV-2 and the already out Tivoli B-segment SUV. It was previewed by the SIV-2 concept in March this year.
