FIVE SsangYong dealers have been added to the growing South Korean franchise as the brand prepares to launch Rexton.
The new appointments are Canterbury SsangYong, Duthies of Montrose, FG Barnes Maidstone, Burrows Motor Company Sheffield, and SB Wakefield.
Its all-new large SUV, pictured, arrives this autumn, and Paul Williams, chief executive of SsangYong Motor UK, said: ‘The arrival of our new Rexton SUV is undoubtedly raising interest in the brand, while the other improvements we have made to the range – added safety equipment on Tivoli and Tivoli XLV, new look to Korando and increased towing capacity on the Musso pick-up – have all added to range appeal.
‘With the current political and economic conditions, value brands are increasingly in demand and we can offer a wide product portfolio of six different models – a choice of SUVs plus a seven-seat MPV and one-tonne pick-up – unlike some other car makes.
‘Confidence in SsangYong is growing steadily, and the quality of prospective new dealers is extremely encouraging. We expect to be able to announce another tranche of new dealers in the near future.’
Current open points are in Aberdeen, Ayr, Blackpool, Bristol, Cambridge, Derby, Grimsby, Hull, Inverness, Lincoln, Liverpool, Milton Keynes, north Birmingham, Oxford, Perth, Portsmouth, Salisbury, Southend, Swindon, Taunton, Teesside, Truro, Watford, Worcester, Worcester, Wrexham and York.
