SsangYong Motors Ireland celebrates 3rd anniversary
MD Joe Harris predicts strong growth for SsangYong Motors Ireland in 2016
SsangYong Motors Ireland is celebrating its 3rd anniversary as the Irish distributor for this prestigious SUV Korean Manufacturer. Joe Harris, Managing Director of SsangYong Motors Ireland, sees a bright future for this third year of existence: “We have high hopes for the Tivoli and for the new Tivoli XLV, coming later this year”.
The new model (that shares the same platform with the Tivoli) will be launched at the Geneva Motor Show in March. The launch of Tivoli XLV in Ireland is planned for June 2016. With great fuel economy and a combined cycle CO2 of 117g/km (on the manual diesel 2WD with stop-start) the price will be around €23,000 for the entry level diesel. It comes with the SsangYong 5 Year Roadside Assistance and 5 Year Unlimited Warranty.
Joe Harris explains: “It’s a heavier and bigger car than the Tivoli, with a boot space of 574 litres (Tivoli has 423 litres) and it’s going to be competing within the C-Segment Crossover space”, alongside the Korando.
The rest of SsangYong’s range – Rexton, Korando and Rodius – will have an updated Euro 6 diesel engines and some specification upgrades during 2016.
“I am grateful to my team of dealers all around Ireland who have worked hard to develop the brand and now stand to reap the rewards of these latest class leading models which we have added to our range”, says Joe Harris.
SsangYong currently has 11 dealers in Ireland: Bill Cullen Premier Cars, Cashman Car Sales, Cassidy Motors, Fahy&Ryan, HB Dennis Airside, Hinchys Ennis Road and Garryspillane, Lynn Motors, O’Sullivan Auto, Ryans Garage and Waterford Motor Village.
