SsangYong is not normally a brand whose styling we’re comfortable with, but this SIV-1 Concept represents a marked improvement in the company’s aesthetics – even if we’re still not in love with its high-waisted look.

SIV translates to “Smart Interface Vehicle,” and we’re told it is a “multi-interface” crossover that has a mobile audio system and four bucket seats. We’ll find out more when we get to Geneva next month, but we like what we see so far. You can visit the press release below for a few more official words.
