One of the most surprising concepts to grace the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show floor in September 2011 was the five-door SsangYong XIV-1 with some nifty suicide-style doors.

Fast forward to the upcoming 2012 Geneva Motor Show and the Korean automaker is bringing another concept crossover, the XIV-2 Concept. Unlike the XIV-1, the XIV-2 is being prepared as a three-door, convertible crossover concept that measures 4,166mm long, 1,820mm wide, and 1,566mm tall. It also features a one-touch automatic opening soft-top roof, among many of its still-to-be-announced qualities.

SsangYong has also announced that the concept will carry different variations - petrol and diesel - of the company’s 1.6-liter engine.

For now, the SsangYong has bared some teaser images of the XIV-2 Concept leading up to its debut at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show. It remains to be seen as to what kind of surprises the Korean automaker has in store for us with the XIV-2 Concept. Rest assured, we’ll be very interested to see how they follow up on their surprisingly popular XIV-1 Concept.

Crossover concept is great. Their perspective of a convertible is good. The wheels were awesome in some newly designed, which seems to be inspired by a flower.

What a teaser! I’d loved to see the newer features of this SsangYong. The exterior looks very fascinating. And another good thing about this concept is that, it will carry on both petrol and diesel engines.

It seems that Koreans are about to snatch the eyes of car enthusiasts. Their concept about this XIV-2 was very out-of-the-world. They’ve put some effort on the exterior, especially on rims. The rims that looks like a flower are somehow fascinating to look at.

A lot of creativity was applied to this concept. The exterior was grandiose. The wheels are striking, and headlamp was superb.
