Tempt­ing 3-2-1 of­fers from SsangYong

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - MOTORS -

AS the nights draw in and the heat­ing goes on, SsangYong an­nounces three tempt­ing of­fers to warm its cus­tomers this au­tumn.

The 3-2-1 of­fer pro­vides three years’ free ser­vic­ing, two years’ ad­di­tional road­side as­sis­tance and one year ad­di­tional VED (ve­hi­cle ex­cise duty), no mat­ter which car you pur­chase be­fore the end of the year.

All SsangYong mod­els al­ready come with the most com­pre­hen­sive five-year lim­it­less mileage war­ranty.

Ad­di­tion­ally, on its Ital­ian de­signed Korean-built Ko­rando cross­over, you can now step up to a two-wheel drive Ko­rando EX but for the same price as an SE at £16,250, or with 4x4 from just £17,750.

This gives you ‘free’ heated front seats, rear pri­vacy glass, auto dip­ping rear view mir­ror, au­to­matic air con­di­tion­ing, sev­eninch touch­screen with rearview cam­era, rear park­ing sen­sors and 17-inch al­loy wheels.

And on the rugged and highly ca­pa­ble Rex­ton 4x4, the SE and EX mod­els now come equipped with free Mercedes-Benz au­to­matic trans­mis­sion and metal­lic paint from just £23,500.

“In ad­di­tion to of­fer­ing great value and ex­tremely well-equipped cars, we are al­ways look­ing to go that ex­tra mile to help re­duce the cost of mo­tor­ing for SsangYong own­ers,” said Paul Williams, CEO of SsangYong Mo­tor UK. “SsangYong is a real value-brand and we demon­strate that when­ever pos­si­ble.

“Korean-built and com­pre­hen­sively equipped, af­ford­able prices and with a war­ranty no other mar­que can match, we are con­fi­dent that with such highly tempt­ing of­fers as these, you will be see­ing many more SsangYong cars on our roads this win­ter.”

The SsangYong Ko­rando cer­tainly looks the part of a rugged cross­over. De­signed by the man who shaped ev­ery­thing from the first VW Golf, a Fer­rari or two and a flotilla of favoured Fi­ats, the 4x4 from Korea looks good against the com­pe­ti­tion.

A study of its spec­i­fi­ca­tion shows the Ko­rando is up to scratch too, of­fer­ing all the kit a cross­over kid could hope for and in­clud­ing, in sev­eral ver­sions, a four-wheel drive sys­tem that clicks in when the go­ing gets slip­pery.

The new Tivoli is the lat­est model from the Korean high-value car maker that has de­cided it’s time for a full frontal as­sault on the Euro­pean car mar­ket.

In fact, SsangYong has been around since 1954 and has been sell­ing in­ex­pen­sive ma­chines like the Rex­ton, Ko­rando and Musso here for years, to peo­ple who like a lot for their money and don’t mind if the car doesn’t drive as well its (dearer) Euro­pean ri­vals.

If you’ve ever liked a car but cursed the size of the boot, there is now a po­ten­tial hol­i­day lug­gage saviour in the smartly chunky shape of the new SsangYong Tivoli XLV. The Korean car maker has taken the ex­ist­ing Tivoli com­pact SUV and added XLV to the name and sev­eral cen­time­tres to the rear of the car.

The ex­tra stretch – all 23.8cms (just over nine inches) of it – is de­voted to pad­ding out the boot space, from a rea­son­able 423 to an enor­mous 720 cu­bic litres.

This ex­tra load space (with much more on of­fer if you flip the rear seat for­ward)moves car­ry­ing ca­pac­ity into the world of much big­ger and dearer cars.
