The Ssangyong Rodius (aka Stavic) has always not been a favorite to the eyes, but the next-generation model promises to be “less of an eyesore”.

Developed over the course of two years (codenamed A150), the new Rodius adopts a “Robust, Premium, Specialty” design philosophy. As such, the model features a rounded front fascia with larger headlights, a revised grille and a sculpted hood. There’s also a full-length character line, a familiar greenhouse and wraparound taillights.

Detailed performance specifications were not released, but Ssangyong confirmed the model will be offered with a 3.2-liter petrol engine and a 2.0-liter diesel engine. Nothing is official, but the latter mill will likely develop 155 HP (114 kW) and 360 Nm (265 lb-ft) of torque.

The redesigned Rodius will go on sale shortly and possibly debut in Geneva. As for now, you can start hoping for a better-looking Ssangyong MPV through the sketches provided
