The Reliable SsangYong Turismo
Reviews From The Guardian
Excellent Value For Money
Ideal for family life, inside the SsangYong Turismo delivers on a wealth of space and comfort. With a huge 3,000mm wheelbase the SsangYong Turismo can comfortably carry seven adults and 875 litres of luggage space, future trips to the airport will never feel cramped again.
Spacious and Comfortable
There are three rows of seats, with the rear two rows able to slide back and forth to work around your specific needs. If you require even greater load space the SsangYong Turismo gives you the ability to remove the third row completely. The second row of captains seats provides a walk through for easy access to the third row, which can also be folded individually and used as tables while still allowing for adequate space to accommodate an airline style seat-back folding tables.
Power and Performance
The SsangYong Turismo comes with an e-XDi200 engine which offers a maximum torque of 1,500-2,800rpm, designed to provide low end torque whether you're driving on or off road. Whether you require a manual drive or automatic, both the 6-Speed Manual or the Mercedes-Benz 5 Speed T-Tronic automatic offer effortlessly smooth gear changes.
The top spec model of the SsangYong Turismo provides the driver with 4x4 capability. With the ability to be able to easily tackle difficult terrain, the 4x4 model of the Turismo gives even greater towing prowess. With a 2.5 tonne towing capability the SsangYong Turismo can comfortably tow a caravan, horse-box or boat trailer.
"...sit back, look down on the world from a seat that could be a lifeguard's, and the messy business of navigating the road seems pleasantly pain free." (The Guardian)
Across all specs of the SsangYong Turismo are a number of safety features as standard including Electronic Stability Program (ESP), Active Rollover Protection (ARP) and Brake Assist System (BAS).
Passive safety is enhanced thanks to two high strength safety sub-frames fitted to the front and rear of the car. This helps to disperse any impact shocks from a frontal or off-set collision and help protect passengers by minimising cabin distortion.
"Pound for pound there isn't a bigger deal on the road. And you'll never again be plagued with doubts about the size of your MPV: in a Turismo, it's easily the biggest!" (The Guardian)
