Commented Ian Govier, MIMI, dealer principal of Littlewick Green Motor Company, “We are delighted to have been appointed to represent SsangYong, and greatly look forward to playing our part in its success. The Korando is a great car, and with a very competitive price and 5 year limitless warranty we believe it will do extremely well in our area, and have every confidence in its success.
