South Korean automotive brand SsangYong continues its relaunch journey in Ireland and for Model Year 2021 has a number of commercial vehicle and new car offerings available immediately through its dealer network. New additions and further modifications to the model will be announced during the course of the year.

“The Korando makes a confident, contemporary statement, while maintaining the good-looking chunky lines first penned by Giugiaro. This model builds on its well-known abilities – towing, load-space, value, and warranty.”

Arrival of the first of the all-new SsangYong Rexton in a 2-Seat Commercial and in July the all-new Rexton will be launched as a 5 Seat Business Edition/Utility Vehicle.
“The flagship SsangYong Rexton, 4×4 magazine’s ‘4×4 of The Year’ for three consecutive years, has a powerful 2.2 litre turbo diesel engine, offers a 3.5 tonne towing capacity, so is perfect for those who tow large caravans and trailers or need rugged off-road capability.”
March will also see the launch of the Tivoli XLV in 1.5 Turbo Petrol and 1.6 Turbo Diesel, plus the introduction of the facelift Musso and Musso Grand.
“The SsangYong Musso is a multi-award-winning, extremely competent, multi-purpose truck with SsangYong values to the core – comprehensively equipped.”
And then later in Quarter 3, 2021 we will see the launch of SsangYong’s first full electric vehicle (EV), based on the Korando.
