“The arrival of our new Rexton SUV is undoubtedly raising interest in the brand,” says Paul Williams, CEO of SsangYong Motor UK, “while the other improvements we have made to the range – added safety equipment on Tivoli & 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 1-tonne pick-up, unlike some other car makes.
“Confidence in SsangYong is growing steadily as our performance and improving media profile indicate, 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,” Mr Williams concluded.
SsangYong says it is still looking to add new dealers in several areas of the UK.
