Ssangyong Y400 teased
Ssangyong has teased its new, bigger SUV, the Y400 which will be revealed in full at the Seoul Motor Show later this month.
SSANGYONG IS KOREA’S oldest car maker (established in 1954) and the only “specialist 4×4” brand in the country, and it’s just teased its new, larger SUV which the car maker says takes its inspiration from the LIV-2 concept revealed at the Paris Motor Show last year.
In a short statement accompanying the two images, Ssangyong said: “With a front-mounted engine, rear-wheel drive and 4×4, Y400 will be a class-leading contender. It will offer excellent driving characteristics on and off-road, balanced weight distribution, great towing capability and NVH performance”.
Under the bonnet of the Y400 will be the choice of either a petrol or diesel engine. In terms of size, the Y400 is approaching that of Ford Everest.
The car will go on sale in Korea during the first half of this year, and internationally before the end of 2017.
