Even if it is better known for its crossovers with doubtfull design, Ssangyong wants to show UK customers that it can also offer a familly car, with huge interior space. The South Koreean manufacturer unveiled the new Ssangyong Turismo, a car to transport seven adults and their luggage.

Being 5 metres long and with a 3 metre wheelbase, the car is larger than a standard sized MPV. There are three rows of seats as well as a large load space which can be further increased by removing the third row completely. This gives a load carrying capability of between 875 litres with seven adults seated, through to two adults and 3,146 litres of load space.

The car uses a 2.2 litre Euro 6 diesel engine.  The Turismo also now offers the choice of a 6-speed manual transmission or new Mercedes-Benz 7-speed automatic. Maximum power is increased to 178 hp and torque to 400 Nm - up by 15% and 11% respectively over the previous Euro 5 diesel 2.0 litre engine.  Maximum torque is delivered from a low of 1,400 rpm and maintained through a wide range up to 2,800 rpm for smooth, progressive driving from the start.

CO2 emissions have been reduced to 189 g/km, down from 199 g/km on the previous 4x2 manual transmission model, while fuel economy is also improved and now up to 39.2 mpg (Combined cycle) compared with 37.2 mpg over the model it replaces.

The new 2016 Ssangyong Turismo 2.2 has a starting price of 18.995 GBP and can go up to 24.995 GBP.
