As the names suggest, the XIV Air and XIV Adventure concepts are extensions of the original XIV concept from the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show.
SsangYong describes the pair as “ideal for the urban dweller with an active lifestyle who seeks to escape the city.”
While both concepts feature similar exterior styling and a five-seat layout, the Air gets an elongated ‘Targa-style’ open roof and the Adventure gets a specialised luggage rack mounted up top.
The Adventure also has a flap attached to the rear, which may serve as both convenient entry to the boot and a picnic table or picnic seat.
Power in each concept comes from 1.6 litre four-cylinder engines in both diesel- and petrol-powered formats, attached to either manual or automatic transmissions - both six-speed.
These powertrain options are expected to carry-over into the road-going version, with production to begin soon.
As the X100 was heavily camouflaged, it’s unclear what degree of styling from the new XIV concepts will feature in the showroom-ready model.
Sales are expected to begin in Korea sometime next year, but an entry into other markets - including Australia - is yet to be confirmed.
