Time 7 years ago

XIVTEN new dealers have signed-up to represent SsangYong, Korea’s oldest car brand, bringing to 20 the number of new dealers appointed this year in the UK.

And the manufacturer is on the hunt for more dealer partners, having identified a number of open points across the UK.

Paul Williams, CEO of SsangYong Motor UK, said: ‘Confidence in the SsangYong brand is unquestionably growing, and our business proposition for dealers is increasingly being recognised as these 10 new appointments testify.


‘We warmly welcome each and every one to the SsangYong franchise, which has grown by 29 new dealerships in less than two years.

‘Our four-model range has been extensively refreshed – face-lifted Korando, new Rexton W and Turismo, and greatly improved Korando Sports pick-up – offering dealers and their customers a complete range of SUV and 4×4 vehicles. In addition, our all-new B-segment X100 crossover arrives mid-next year.

‘That confidence is also translating into sales, with SsangYong now one of the fastest growing brands in the market this year.’

SsangYong is looking for the right quality dealers to represent the brand in a number of locations.

There are a number of open points across England, Scotland and Wales including Aberdeen, Birmingham, Bradford, Greater Manchester, Leicester, Liverpool, London and the South-East, mid- and North Wales, Reading, Southampton, Teesside and Watford.

The new appointments by Ssangyong are as follows:

  • Bescol Motors, Consett, County Durham
  • Falmouth Garage, Falmouth, Cornwall
  • Frasers of Falkirk
  • Klic Cars, Dumfries
  • Lindacre Ipswich
  • Minerva Cars, Bath
  • SERE, Belfast
  • Shukers, Shrewsbury, Shropshire
  • SMC Plymouth, Plymouth
  • Tanners of Cardiff
