SsangYong Motors UK is delighted to welcome Seeker Ssangyong to its network, which will operate from its premises in Chesterfield.

Nick Laird, managing director of SsangYong Motor UK said: “Having just launched the all-new Korando in the UK, which completes our new generation range line-up, we have been, and still are, looking to attract new dealers.  The focus on the expansion of our dealer network is of paramount importance to our customers, so we are delighted that Seeker SsangYong has decided to add our brand to its portfolio.”

Located on the edge of the Peak District National Park, Seeker’s showroom and aftersales centre are located 10 minutes from junction 29 of the M1 motorway.  

Company owner, David Merifield, said; “We are very pleased to adopt the SsangYong franchise, and greatly look forward to growing our business as a result. SsangYong has a great range, and with very competitive pricing and a 7-years/150,000 miles warranty, we believe it will do extremely well in our area.”

Dealer Manager, Lee French, commented; “At Seeker SsangYong we are fully committed to finding the best deal for our customers, including the best financial package and part exchange offer. We offer full franchised dealer facilities at our showroom in Chesterfield, where we have all SsangYong models available to view or experience an extended test drive."

Seeker SsangYong has recently announced its proud sponsorship of the Osberton International Horse Trials 2019, taking place Wednesday 2nd to Sunday 6th October.  Lee, added: "SsangYong’s vehicles are hugely popular within the equine community due to value for money, space and towing capability, so we are delighted to be strengthening the ties even further at this prestigious event where we will have a vehicle stand and be offering test drives."

SsangYong has an interesting approach to franchising. Its proposition is unique and endeavors to change how prospects view operating a new-vehicle franchise by presenting no up-front fees, zero-cost signage, and no charges for special tools or computer diagnostics - ensuring that representing the brand is highly appealing and easily accessible. SsangYong is actively looking for new partners to represent the brand in several open points across the UK.


Made in Korea
SsangYong cars are manufactured in South Korea by SsangYong Motor, which is 75 per cent owned by the Indian engineering conglomerate Mahindra & Mahindra and imported into the UK by SsangYong Motor UK.  Established in 1954, SsangYong is Korea's oldest vehicle manufacturer and only 4x4 and SUV specialist producer.  There are currently some 65 SsangYong dealers covering England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales, with new locations being added to the network all the time.
