SsangYong unveiled its new 2014 Rodius MPV at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. This car has been developed to combine multi role flexibility and the ride comfort and appointments of a luxury saloon within an all new shape. It is also known as Rodius, Korando Turismo and Stavic, depending on the market.
SsangYong’s designers have gone to great lengths to create a distinctive and innovative look to its new MPV. The brief was to create a sporting while at the same time luxurious and dignified tone that would blend well with the car’s numerous roles.
Thanks to its 3,000mm wheelbase, the car provides a huge internal space where seven adults can travel in supreme comfort together with their luggage. There are three rows of seats as well as a large load area which can be further increased by removing the third row completely. The second row of seats can be folded individually and used as tables.
The Rodius is powered by SsangYong’s own 2.0 litre e-XDi200 turbo charged diesel engine producing 155 HP (114 kW) at 4,000 rpm and 360 Nm (265 lb-ft) of torque between 1,500 and 2,800 rpm. There’s a choice of 6-speed manual transmission and 5-speed T-Tronic Mercedes-Benz automatic transmission, ensuring world-class durability, smooth gear-changing performance and quiet operation.
