The new SsangYong Turismo arrives in the UK almost without competition.  At over 5 metres long and with a 3 metre wheelbase, the car is larger than a standard sized MPV such as the Ford Galaxy, Renault Grand Scenic or SEAT Alhambra, yet is a car rather than a van-derived ‘people carrier’ like the Hyundai i800, Mercedes Viano or VW Caravelle.

Consequently its huge interior space and flexible passenger and load carrying capability means it can carry seven adults and 875 litres of luggage, through to two adults and 3,146 litres of load space, with seven alternative passenger and load combinations to choose from.

Thanks to its 3,000mm wheelbase, the car provides a huge interior space where seven adults can travel in supreme comfort with their luggage loaded in the back, without having to compromise on passenger accommodation.  There are three rows of seats as well as a large load space which can be further increased by removing the third row completely.  The second row of seats provides convenient ‘walk through’ access to the third row, and can also be folded individually and used as tables while still providing sufficient space to accommodate airline style seat-back folding tables.

The Turismo is powered by SsangYong’s own 2.0 litre turbo charged e-XDi200 diesel engine offering a level of performance and NVH (noise, vibration and harshness) control that has already been tested, proven and praised in the marketplace.

The e-XDi200 engine offers maximum power of 155PS/4,000rpm and maximum torque of 360Nm/1,500-2,800rpm, and is designed to provide low end torque whatever the conditions on or off road.

There’s a choice of 6-speed manual transmission and 5-speed Mercedes-Benz T-Tronic automatic transmission, ensuring world class durability, smooth gear changing performance and quiet operation.

While rear wheel drive features across the range, the top of the range EX includes selectable 4x4 with low ratio as standard. As with other Turismo models the EX has an impressive 2.5 tonne towing capability.

The new Turismo utilises double wishbone front suspension and rear independent multi-link suspension for executive saloon style ride quality.

“With prices starting from just £17,995, there really is nothing like it in the market,” says Paul Williams, CEO of SsangYong Motor UK.  “With key features being its innovative and flexible design layout, luxurious interior and highly competitive pricing, the new Turismo is a compelling proposition.  Not only do you get a lot of car for the money, you also have the reassurance of an industry-leading 5 year limitless mileage warranty for complete peace of mind.”

The Turismo is now available to order from over 50 SsangYong dealers across the UK.
