SsangYong previews new Korando with XAV concept

SsangYong chose the Frankfurt Motor Show to debut its new XAV-Adventure and also hinted that this concept may preview the fourth-generation Korando.

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.

SsangYong also stated that the XAV was 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.

A release date for the production model has not been set.
