SsangYong LIV-2 Concept (new-gen Rexton) shows how future Mahindra SUVs could look


The SsangYong LIV-2 concept (Limitless Interface Vehicle) premium full sized SUV previews a car that’s soon to be launched. LIV-2 is a progress from LIV-1 concept shown at 2013 Seoul Motor Show.

On the design front, SsangYong LIV-2 concept upholds the automaker’s design philosophy, Nature-born 3Motion. Up front, LIV-2 grille and headlights seamlessly come together. Coherent, and bold, the matte white body and white-ish interior insist on futuristic notions. White, specific, and in place.

CEO Johng-sik Choi says LIV-2 showcases our luxurious approach to the extremely popular SUV concept, while also applying advanced technologies and high levels of safety.


The company is confident that this will be yet another landmark vehicle that takes the brand to the next level. SsangYong looks forward to adding a model every year for the next few years. On the design front, each new vehicle will fortify brand appeal for customers and international markets.

SsangYong LIV-2 concept has electric steps fitted on both sides. The car illuminates the path for passengers approaching or leaving the car at night. Luxury is a high priority for a chauffeur driven limousine experience. LIV-2 concept has individual seats, and a fully connected centre console for rear seat occupants. Seats recline, and feature massage function. An integrated communication system features a central 9.2″ monitor and 10.1″ monitor in each headrest. Connectivity is boosted through Wi-Fi, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.


SsangYong LIV-2 gets power from the 181 PS 2.2-litre Euro 6 diesel engine with peak torque of 420 Nm (309 lb-ft) between 1,500 and 2,500 rpm. A 7-speed Mercedes-Benz automatic transmission is mated to the newly developed 2.0-liter GDi turbocharged petrol engine that returns 225 PS and 350 Nm (258 lb-ft) of torque.

Equipped with nine airbags (front, front & rear side, curtain and driver’s knee), advanced emergency braking system (AEBS), lane departure warning, blind spot detection, lane change assist, traffic safety assist and high beam assistance, safety is a focus area.
