NEW-LOOK TURISMO MPV ANNOUNCED BY SSANGYONG

Jul 26, 2018

  • Largest MPV on the market enhanced
  • 2.2 litre diesel power and choice of automatic transmission and 4x4
  • Available from just £20,495

Offering family and business users a car to transport seven adults in comfort together with their luggage, the SsangYong Turismo is almost without rival.

Now this capacious seven-seater has received a substantial front-end facelift to bring it into line with other models in the SsangYong range. Complete with LED daytime running lights, the car sports an elegant and sophisticated front-look with greatly enhanced road presence.

The top-of-the-range Turismo ELX comes with selectable four-wheel drive, a 7-speed Mercedes-Benz automatic transmission, cruise control, parking sensors, rear seating privacy glass, 16” alloy wheels, roof rails, heated front seats, rain sensing wipers and automatic headlights. It also now includes a smart infotainment system with Bluetooth, RDS, DAB radio, Apple Carplay and Android Auto plus a rear view camera.

At over 5 metres long and with a 3-metre wheelbase, Turismo is larger than a standard sized MPV people carrier, and features a powerful 2.2 litre diesel engine.

Thanks to its 3,000mm wheelbase, Turismo provides a huge interior space where seven adults can travel in supreme comfort with their luggage loaded in the back, and without having to compromise on passenger accommodation. There are three rows of seats as well as the large load area which can be further increased by removing the third row completely. This gives a massive load carrying capability of between 875 litres with seven adults seated, through to two adults and 3,146 litres of load space.

With its selectable 4x4 with low ratio, the Turismo ELX is a car you can rely on, no matter what the weather throws at you and is especially safe and practical when towing a caravan, horsebox or boat trailer, and has an impressive 2.7 tonne towing capacity.

The new Turismo utilises double wishbone front suspension and rear independent multi-link suspension for executive saloon style ride quality. This set-up offers a quiet and comfortable driving environment with firm body control, a flat ride and optimum stability regardless of the road conditions.

The new Turismo is on sale now, with prices ranging from £20,495 for the two-wheel drive SE, to £26,995 for the ELX with four-wheel drive, and is also available through Motability.
