SsangYong enters motability deal


SsangYong Korando SUV, Rexton W 4x4 and Turismo MPV are now available to those receiving the Higher Rate Motability Component of the Disability Living Allowance, the Enhanced Rate of the Motability Component of Personal Independence Payment, the War Pensioners’ Mobility Supplement or the Armed Forces Independence Payment.

Available through SsangYong dealers participating in the Motability scheme, it will allow disabled motorists to lease a new SsangYong using their government-funded mobility allowance.

Paul Williams, CEO of SsangYong Motor UK said: ‘Motability is an excellent scheme that has helped thousands of people get mobile. We are delighted that three of our cars - Korando, Rexton W and seven-seat Turismo are now available to disabled motorists.' Korando — designed in Italy by Giorgetto Giugiaro of Ital Design, the SsangYong Korando offers a highly contemporary look.

Comprehensively equipped, prices starting from just £14,995 and backed by a five-year limitless mileage warranty, the Korando sets a new benchmark of affordability in the rapidly growing compact crossover segment.

Powered by a 2.0-litre Euro 5 diesel engine delivering excellent fuel economy and impressive 147g/km C02 emissions, the 149PS+ diesel engine makes Korando one of the most powerful in its class.

Rexton W — the SsangYong Rexton W has an almost unrivalled position in the 4x4 sector, particularly with prices starting from £1,995.

Noted for being an extremely competent off-roader, Rexton W uses a body on frame construction for maximum strength, with double wish-bone and coil spring suspension to the front, and multi-link suspension at the rear.

There's the choice of a 6-speed manual transmission or 5-speed Mercedes-Benz T-Tronic automatic. With its three-tonne towing capability, the new Rexton W makes light work of hauling a full-size caravan, double horsebox, boat or work trailer.

Turismo — with on the road prices from just £17,995, the seven-seat SsangYong Turismo MPV is larger than a standard-sized MPV such as the Ford Galaxy, Renault Grand Scenic or SEAT Alhambra, yet is a car rather than a van-derived "people carrier' like the Hyundai 1800, Mercedes Viano or VW Caravelle.

The Turismo is powered by SsangYong's own 2.0-litre turbo-charged e-XDi200 diesel engine offering a level of performance and NVH (noise, vibration and harshness) control that has already been tested, proven and praised in the marketplace.
