In a new SsangYong you can drive for a quarter of a million miles and not have to worry about a warranty claim. Now even better value for money, SsangYong Kyron, Rexton and Rodius models now come with a five year or 250,000 mile warranty (whichever comes first).Five Years' Free Servicing
Right now, a five year warranty isn't the only reason to consider a SsangYong. Until the end of June 2009, retail customers can also enjoy five years / 50,000 miles of free servicing, focusing still further on SsangYong's reliability and low costs of ownership.
Customers can easily plan their motoring budgets with SsangYong, confident that there will be no nasty surprises. All SsangYong models also come with three years' European AA cover.
The SsangYong range appeals to those looking for a well equipped, immensely practical vehicle who want value for money rather than paying the premium prices demanded by other brands. They are especially suitable for anyone with a regular or occasional need to tow a caravan, boat, horsebox or trailer of any kind, and if you need to venture off the tarmac, SsangYong's four wheel drive systems will let you do it with ease.
There are six SsangYong Kyron models with a choice of the latest clean and economical 2.0 and 2.7 litre, turbocharged common rail diesel engines, with two or four wheel drive and manual or automatic transmissions. The SsangYong Kyron represents a considerable saving over its competitors such as the Kia Sorento, Hyundai Santa Fe and Chevrolet Captiva.
The SsangYong Kyron starts at £14,995 and even at this price, gets air conditioning, electronic stability programme (ESP), hill descent control (HDC), ABS brakes, a Kenwood radio and CD player and steering wheel audio controls. All SsangYong Kyrons are versatile and practical five-seaters that will tow up to 2.3 metric tons. The extra urban fuel consumption of the 2.0 diesel is up to a pleasing 45.6mpg. CO2 emissions are the lowest in the class at only 191 g/km.
For the ultimate in comfort, equipment and go-anywhere four wheel drive ability, the SsangYong Kyron 2.7 SPR wants for nothing. Its huge towing capability comes from permanent four wheel drive and the SsangYong 2.7 litre, turbocharged diesel engine. This gives 165 PS and a thumping 340 Nm of torque at 2,525rpm. With Mercedes T-Tronic auto transmission, it still returns an extra urban consumption of 34mpg.
All three SsangYong Rexton models (from £19,995) have all wheel drive and the 2.7 litre common rail turbo diesel engine for big towing capacity and off-road capability. The SsangYong Rexton squares up against the Mitsubishi Shogun, Land Rover Discovery and Jeep Cherokee and whichever way you look at it, offers great value and performance with huge advantages over the competition.
For serious people carrying capacity, SsangYong's Rodius models come in 2wd and 4wd - all with the 2.7 litre turbo diesel - and with automatic transmission as an option.
A full seven-seater with ample luggage space, the Rodius 270 S easily undercuts the Kia Sedona and starts at only £14,995. All SsangYong Rodius models use the 2.7 litre with 165PS and massive torque. Even a vehicle this big can achieve up to 35.8mpg.
