The new SsangYong C200 model has been shown at the Seoul Motor Show in two versions and with three choices of power. The car is scheduled for production later this year and should reach the UK inside 12 months.
The SsangYong C200 is smaller and lighter than current SsangYong models, promising much improved fuel economy and lower CO2 emissions. Dubbed a compact urban vehicle (CUV), the SsangYong C200 Eco uses diesel hybrid power and the Aero version has a choice of a high torque 2.0 diesel or turbocharged 1.8 litre petrol engines.
SsangYong expects class-leading fuel economy and CO2 emissions reduced by 50 per cent in the Eco. Show cars have a six-speed auto transmission, but manual versions will also be available.
Styled by Giugiaro's ItalDesign in Italy, the SsangYong C200 has a 2.65m wheelbase with an overall length of 4.4m. The car will undergo Euro NCAP crash testing before coming to market.
