It may not really improve upon the image we have about the Rodius in all aspects of styling, but SsangYong's new people carrier will more than impress with its spacious interior that features no less than four rows of seats accommodating up to 11 passengers!
While its world premiere will be held at the Geneva Motor Show in the beginning of March, SsangYong revealed the new generation of the Rodius under the 'Korando Turismo' nameplate today in its home market of South Korea. Besides those two names, the Rodius will also be known as the 'Stavic' in select countries.
The full-size van is 5,130mm (202 inches) long, 1,915mm (75.4 inches) wide and 1,815mm (71.5 inches) tall. It rides on 3.0 meter (118.1 inches) long wheelbase.
There will be a choice of two engines, starting with a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-four diesel rated for 155PS (153hp) linked to a six-speed manual or a five-speed automatic transmission, which will be joined later on by a 3.2-liter V6 petrol. All-wheel drive will be offered as an option.
Sales in Europe will begin in the second half of the year, with full details to be announced in Geneva.
