Ssangyong Turismo pricing announced
All versions of the Ssangyong Turismo come with the same 2.0-litre diesel engine, which produces 153bhp and 266lb ft of torque.
Fuel economy ranges from 37.2mpg for the rear-wheel-drive model with a manual gearbox, to 34.9mpg for the four-wheel-drive car with a five-speed automatic. CO2 emissions range from 199g/km to 212g/km for the same models.
There are three trims available: S, ES and EX. The entry-level S version gets climate control, Bluetooth, USB input, front and rear foglights plus a six-speaker CD system as standard.
ES trim starts at £19,995, adding items such as side airbags, alloy wheels, rear parking sensors and heated leather front seats. You can also specify an ES car with the five-speed automatic ‘box, which adds cruise control.
The EX model costs £23,995 and is the only version that gets four-wheel drive. It’s only available with the auto gearbox and adds automatic wipers, larger alloys and a heated windscreen.
The optional extras are limited to an upgraded CD system with DAB digital radio, or a pricier £1000 system that includes a colour touch-screen sat-nav.
The new Ssangyong Turismo range is available to order now from dealers.
