After a brief absence from the UK SsangYong launched the Rodius in June 2005. Designed by Ken Greenley, former head of the automotive design course at the Royal College of Art in London the seven seat Rodius is the biggest MPV in its class offering high levels of space and comfort at a price that challenges its MPV competition.
Currently the Rodius is only available with a 2.7 litre diesel engine mated to a five speed Mercedes-Benz T Tronic automatic transmission. Prices range from £18,999 for the 2.7Xdi S to £21,999 for the 2.7Xdi SE.
We tested the SsangYong Rodius SV 270 S automatic to see if it could live up to SsangYong's claims that the Rodius is 'luxury transport for the 21st Century'.
