SSANGYONG Motors UK has welcomed DS Dalgleish & Son to the brand.
Its range of 4x4s and SUVs is now available from the dealership, which operates from premises in Coldstream.
Nick Laird, managing director of SsangYong Motor UK, said: ‘On the back of the hugely successful launch of the new Rexton and Musso pick-ups, we have been looking to attract new dealers.
‘The brand is committed to long-term investment in new products and will see at least one new model launched each year through to 2022. We are especially delighted that DS Dalgleish & Son has decided to add the brand to its dealership in Coldstream.’
DS Dalgleish & Son was founded by David and Scott Dalgleish in 1968. It took on the Datsun (Nissan) franchise in Galashiels in 1972 and still represents Nissan today. After further expansion in 1996, with the purchase of its Coldstream site, DS Dalgleish added the Citroen franchise in 1997. Since then, the dealership has also added Subaru and Fiat to its portfolio in Galashiels.
Barry Dalgleish, dealer principal at DS Dalgleish, said: ‘We’re very excited to be joining SsangYong. We were attracted to the brand by exciting new vehicles that have started coming through from South Korea.
‘SsangYong has a great product range, with very competitive pricing and a seven-year/150,000-mile warranty. We believe it will do extremely well in our area and we look forward to growing our business as a result.’
