Default SsangYong XAVL Concept

https://www.netcarshow.com/ssangyong/2017-xavl_concept/



A Vision opf their future CUV, and at least those fearing that SaangYong might become conventional or even pretty can sit back and relax. Still rather quirky.

Untypically for a concept car it's not electric or hybrid, but SsangYong rather names a choice of 1.5 petrol Turbo and a 1.6 Diesel with either manual or automated 6 speed gear boxes (clearly not overpowered for a mid sized CUV). indicating that this will see production rather soon.

Dumb brand name. Dumb model name.

Make it a bit less "concepty" and you have a very nice production vehicle.

I'm sorry that this Korean company's name offends your American sensibilities? Deal with it.

Triggered person alert!

First of all, you're not sorry. You also assume the name offended me.

It's perfectly OK to think that Ssangyong is not the most appealing of names.

It's hardly the only unappealing brand name.

You need to look up the definition of that term as that's not what I was. And, second of all, of course I'm not sorry; it's called sarcasm.

I was being kind by calling you triggered. ;) My real sentiments were less charitable. LOL
