THE SsangYong range of 4x4s and SUVs is now available in the Kent town of Northfleet.
Family-run dealership group Hidsons will operate the SsangYong franchise from its premises at Oakwood Industrial Estate, Thames Way.
It will be Hidsons’ second SsangYong dealership – the company already sells the manufacturer’s cars at its showroom in Rainham, Essex.
Welcoming the news of the new outlet, Paul Williams, CEO of SsangYong Motor UK, said: ‘We and our dealers are focused on giving customers great service, so whether buying a new or used SsangYong, choosing accessories or helping to maintain their car in the years ahead, we are confident customers will appreciate the car, their dealer and the brand.’
Nigel Hidson, dealer principal of Hidson’s SsangYong, added: ‘We are delighted to have been appointed to represent SsangYong and greatly look forward to playing our part in its continuing success.
‘SsangYong has a great range, and with very competitive pricing and a five-year limitless mileage warranty on every car, we believe it will do extremely well in our area.’
SsangYong cars, such as the Rexton, pictured, are manufactured in South Korea by SsangYong Motor, which is 73 per cent owned by the Indian engineering conglomerate Mahindra & Mahindra.
There are currently some 60 SsangYong dealers covering England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales, with new locations being added all the time.
