The SsangYong Rodius Turismo is currently on show at the Geneva Motor Show. According to SsangYong, the new Rodius has been designed with the aim “to combine multi-role flexibility and driving comfort and appointments of a luxury saloon within an all-new shape.”
New SsangYong Rodius – Specifications and FeaturesEngine Capability
The new SsangYong Rodius Turismo is fitted with a 2.0-litre e-XDi200 turbo diesel engine that produces 114kW at 4 000rpm with a torque figure of 360Nm at 2800rpm. The engine can be mated to a six-speed manual gearbox or a T-Tronic five-speed Mercedes Benz automatic transmission.
Exterior Styling Features
SsangYong designers created a distinctive and innovative look to the Rodius Turismo, incorporating a sporting feel but at the same time blending the car’s numerous roles with a luxurious and dignified tone.
By further combining the strength and fluidity of the car, the front has a robust stance due to a hexagonal shaped radiator grille and trapezoidal bumper. The new SsangYong Rodius also utilises a double wishbone front suspension and rear independent multi-link suspension for executive saloon-style ride quality.
Interior Styling Features
The interior is fitted with seven seats in a three-in-a-row seating arrangement. The second row can be folded individually and used as tables while the third row can be removed completely. The 300mm wheelbase provides large internal space that can fit seven passengers together with their luggage, and without having to compromise on passenger capacity and comfortable travelling.
Other interior features include leather upholstery, a heated windscreen, air conditioning, air quality system, eco cruise control, electrically-adjustable and heated front seats, USB / AUX / Bluetooth support and a MP3 CD & RDS radio.
The new SsangYong Rodius is fitted with a comprehensive package of active safety features such as Electronic Stability Program (ESP), Active Roll Over Protection (ARP) and Brake Assist System (BAS), along with dual front and side airbags. The ISOFIX and tether anchorage points for child seats are fitted on the second row.
