SsangYong’s continuing run of concepts has given birth to a new concept called the LIV-1, which stands for "Limitless Interface Vehicle".

Now we’ve seen the Korean automaker release some of the least attractive vehicles in the past, but it has done quite well in recent years, or at least not as bad as it used to.

The LIV-1 Concept is the latest proof that SsangYong is serious about giving its models a stylistic makeover. Pegged as a large premium SUV, the LIV-1 certainly has a couple of things about it that’s worth mentioning, including the haughty headlight setup, which we actually like because it gives off a proud but not too arrogant look that underlines SsangYong’s intention to make a name for itself in the business.

There’s a good chance that the LIV-1 Concept is a preview of a production vehicle and we won’t be surprised if it does make it to production. With the number of concepts SsangYong has been releasing the past few years, at least one of them has to make it to production, right?

Full details of the LIV-1 will be revealed at the Seoul Motor Show so sit tight and we’ll give you the information when it becomes available.
