  • Ash Bank Garage, Werrington, Stoke-on-Trent
  • Catterick Caravans, Richmond, North Yorkshire
  • Staddlestones, Ryde, Isle of Wight
  • Ullswater Road Garage, Penrith, Cumbria

“We warmly welcome these five new partners to the SsangYong franchise," said Paul Williams, CEO of SsangYong Motor UK.

“The SsangYong value proposition is now widely recognised by the motor industry.  The Korando is the lowest priced 2-litre crossover, and the recently launched Turismo, the most competitively priced MPV available.

“The new Rexton W 4x4 arrives in December, which at £21,995 undercuts its nearest rival by several thousand pounds.  This is followed by the launch of the refreshed 2014 specification Korando and Korando Sports pick-up at the turn of the year, and soon afterwards the international launch of our first B-segment model at the Geneva Motor Show next spring.

“We are gearing-up for a very busy year and looking for the right quality of dealers to represent us in a number of locations,” added Mr Williams.

Open points across England, Scotland and Wales include: Aberdeen, Borders, Cambridge, Chester, Greater Manchester, Leicester, Liverpool, London & South East, Luton, Mid & North Wales, Milton Keynes, Newcastle, Reading, Sheffield, Teesside and Watford.
