The new car embodies the robust and dynamic SUV styling seen in the LIV-2 concept shown at the Paris motor show in September 2016, and blends drivability with high levels of safety. With a front mounted engine, rear-wheel drive and 4x4, Y400 will be a class-leading contender. It will offer excellent driving characteristics on and off-road, balanced weight distribution, great towing capability and NVH performance.
Constructed using a Quad-Frame body structure using 1.5Gpa giga-steel - a world first, it also features 63% advanced high strength steel (AHSS) to create greatly improved body strength while reducing weight.
The Y400 is 4,850mm long, 1,920mm wide, 1,800mm high, and has a 2,865mm wheelbase. It will be powered by both petrol and new clean-burning diesel engines.
The car will go on sale in Korea during the first half of this year, and internationally before the end of 2017.
