The SsangYong XAVL concept will be unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in March, previewing a future seven-seat SUV model.

SsangYong has previously shown an XAVL concept (the designation stands for eXciting Authentic Vehicle Long), a five-seat model first revealed at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 2015.

According to the Korean brand the car is inspired by the 1990s version of the Korando SUV, and is described as “a tough and masculine looking SUV concept that blends advanced convenience and the practicality of a multi-purpose MPV.”

It is said to offer a wide interior with a user-friendly interface in the front cabin, with a digital display and connected car technology. A host of new safety aids also feature, while the car is powered by either a petrol or a ‘clean-burning diesel’ engine.

   

Any production version of the XAVL is not expected to launch before 2020.
