Relaunched Ssangyong woos buyers

The relaunched Ssangyong brand is trying to woo buyers with revised models, prices and servicing offers.

Distribution for the South Korean manufacturer's cars in the UK was taken over by a new company, Koeliker Ltd, at the end of last year.

As part of the company's relaunch, it is offering three years' free servicing on all models.
