SsangYong are looking to expand their UK presence with the addition of five new locations to its franchised dealer network.
Sales and service will now be available in Cardigan, Cheltenham, Christchurch, Nelson and Yeovil, with the Korean manufacturer hoping to quickly recruit further locations.
The new dealerships are:
Autovillage, Bishops Cleeve, Cheltenham, Gloucestershire
BV Rees, Cardigan, Pembrokeshire
Lynx Garage, Yeovil, Somerset
Steve Durkin Vehicle Services, Nelson, Lancashire
Think Cars, Bransgore, Christchurch, Hampshire
Paul Williams, CEO of SsangYong Motor UK, said: “We warmly welcome these five new partners to the SsangYong franchise.
“The SsangYong value proposition is increasingly being recognised by the motor industry, and 25 new dealers have joined the network in the last 18 months.
“With the range now starting from just £14,995 for our recently introduced Korando SE, motorists are seeing real value in the brand which is gaining a reputation for its well-engineered, reliable and honest cars, every one of which is backed by a ‘no-quibble’ five-year limitless mileage warranty.
“In the last year we have added two new LCV models to the range, the Korando Sports pick-up and Korando CSX commercial, and there will be further launches within the next few months, the seven seat Turismo MPV and Rexton W, a serious contender in the 4×4 market sector.”
SsangYong Motor UK continues to look for dealers to take on the franchise in a number of open points across England, Scotland and Wales.
Desired locations include Aberdeen, Borders, Cambridge, Chester, Greater Manchester, Leicester, Liverpool, London and South East, Luton, Mid & North Wales, Milton Keynes, Newcastle, Reading, Sheffield, Teesside and Watford.
