The new car – codenamed Y400 – embodies the qualities of dynamics and robustness already seen in the LIV-2 concept shown at the 2016 Paris motor show.
The Y400 is 4,850mm long, 1,920mm wide, 1,800mm high, and has a 2,865mm wheelbase. It is based on the Quad-Frame body structure, which makes use of 1.5Gpa giga-steel – and industry first. The SUV also features 63% advanced high strength steel (AHSS).
The SUV will be equipped with a rear- and all-drive transmission, and offer good all-terrain and towing capabilities.
It will go on sale in Korea during the first half of this year, and internationally before the end of 2017.
