New top SsangYong SUV on the way

SsangYong Motor Company will unveil its new large flagship SUV, code-named Y400, at the forthcoming Seoul Motor Show.

The new car embodies the SUV styling seen in the LIV-2 concept shown at the Paris motor show in September 2016, and comes with a front mounted engine, rear-wheel drive and 4×4. SsangYong is claiming excellent driving characteristics on and off-road, balanced weight distribution, great towing capability and NVH performance.

Constructed using a Quad-Frame body structure using 1.5Gpa giga-steel – a world first – it also features 63 per cent advanced high strength steel (AHSS) to create greatly improved body strength while reducing weight.

The Y400 is 4,850mm long, 1,920mm wide, 1,800mm high, and has a 2,865mm wheelbase. It will be available with both petrol and diesel engines.

The car will go on sale in Korea during the first half of this year, and internationally before the end of 2017.
