It can carry seven adults plus 875 litres of luggage – so it should be popular with taxi drivers and larger families
The seven-seat SsangYong Turismo MPV has gone on sale priced £17,995.
According to SsangYong the Turismo with a footprint of over 5,000 mm long and a wheelbase of 3,000 mm is larger than the likes of Ford’s Galaxy or the SEAT Alhambra, yet is a car rather than a van-derived ‘people carrier’ such the Hyundai i800. It can carry seven adults plus 875 litres of luggage – so it should be popular with taxi drivers and larger families – with the seats down and two passengers it has van like proportions and can carry 3,146 litres of cargo.
SsangYong Turismo Engine
The SsangYong Turismo is powered by a 2.0 litre turbo charged e-XDi200 diesel engine which outputs 155PS at 4,000 rpm and delivers 360Nm of torque between 1,500-2,800 rpm.
There’s a choice of 6-speed manual transmission and 5-speed Mercedes-Benz T-Tronic automatic transmission.
The majority of the Turismo range is rear wheel drive, but the ‘EX’ model features selectable four wheel drive with low ratio gearing.
Depending on the model, the official combined fuel consumption is somewhere between 34.9 – 37.2 mpg with CO2 emissions between 199 – 212 g/km.
SsangYong Turismo Range
There are three models in the Turismo Range, ‘S’, ‘ES’ and the top of the range ‘EX’.
