The SsangYong Y400 SUV will be revealed in production form at the upcoming Seoul motor show, the company announced this week.

Set to become the new flagship in the Korean brand’s line-up, the Y400 – which is still to be given a showroom name – will sport styling elements inspired by the LIV-2 concept revealed at last year’s Paris motor show.

According to SsangYong, the Y400 will be offered with rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive, “excellent” driving dynamics on- and off-road, competitive towing capacity, and “great” NVH (noise, vibration harshness) levels.

Measuring 4850mm long, 1920mm wide and 1800mm high with a 2865mm, the Y400 will compete with large SUVs like the Kia Sorento, Mazda CX-9, Skoda Kodiaq and Toyota Kluger.

Underneath the bold exterior will be a ‘Quad-Frame’ platform which utilises 1.5Gpa giga-steel (a world-first), while also featuring extensive use of high-strength steel to improve body strength while reducing weight.

The new model will go on sale in Korea before mid-year, before launching globally by the end of 2017.
