My thoughts on all things motoring, press releases, reviews & techie stuff, from around the world.
Please note that the pictures of vehicles within this blog are used as examples of the specific press releases, on occasions, due to the lack of available official pictures, examples are re-produced.
ANY AND ALL PROFANITIES WILL BE REMOVED AND THE PERSON/S RESPONSIBLE WILL BE BANNED, NO EXCEPTIONS.
I will try my best to provide detailed info on various cars and what is like to live with them, I have already produced a few for Jaguar-car-forums, I will do my best to be unbiased, but it will be hard for some cars. I will re-produce press releases and copy from other motoring news.

Ssangyong starts the year off with some exciting offers on a range of its models.
Free 3-year servicing*
Available on Tivoli, Korando, Rexton 4x4 and Turismo MPV
Range prices from just £12,950
Class leading 5-year limitless mileage warranty
SsangYong is continuing its value-added approach to car ownership by introducing three years free servicing* on its Tivoli, Korando, Rexton and Turismo models.
Available on 16MY cars, the free servicing offer is transferable and fully funded by SsangYong Motor UK Ltd.
“In addition to offering extremely well equipped cars at superb value prices, we are always looking for ways to help reduce the cost of motoring for SsangYong owners,” commented Paul Williams, CEO of SsangYong Motor UK.
“With this new offer, we are helping our customers minimise the running cost of their new car over three years*! Korean built and comprehensively equipped, with affordable prices and a 5-year limitless mileage warranty no other brand can match, we are confident that with SsangYong, motorists are getting one of the best value and fairest motoring solutions available in Britain.”
Tivoli compact SUV
Available with either a 1.6 litre petrol or diesel engine, the new Tivoli is extremely well equipped and comes with air conditioning, alloy wheels, cruise control, seven airbags, Bluetooth connectivity and remote keyless entry. The Tivoli SE is Auto Express magazine’s ‘Cheapest SUV to run’. Prices from £12,950.
The Italian designed and Korean built Korando crossover is available with two-wheel drive Korando from just £16,250, or with 4x4 from just £17,750. Powered by a new powertrain featuring a 2.2 litre diesel Euro 6 engine, the car comes with either a 6-speed manual or Aisin 6-speed automatic transmission for smooth gear changing and an enhanced driving performance. Comprehensive equipment includes automatic air conditioning, cruise control, heated front seats, privacy glass, alloy wheels and rear parking sensors.
The rugged and highly capable Rexton 4x4 features a 2.2 litre turbo diesel engine, and a 6-speed manual or 7-speed Mercedes-Benz automatic transmission.
Built on a steel ladder chassis for maximum strength and with a 3-tonne towing capacity, the SsangYong Rexton is an extremely competent off-roader and tow-vehicle, yet with all the equipment and creature comforts you would expect of a luxury 4x4. Prices start from just £22,995.
At over 5 metres long and with a 3-metre wheelbase, Turismo is larger than a standard sized MPV people carrier, and features an upgraded 2.2 litre Euro 6 diesel engine.
The car provides a huge interior space where seven adults can travel in supreme comfort with their luggage loaded in the back, and without having to compromise on passenger accommodation. There are three rows of seats as well as the large load space. One of the largest cars you can buy for the money, prices start at just £19,250.
Offer is for 3 years or 37,500 miles, whichever comes sooner, and transferrable
Offer available through participating SsangYong dealers
16 model year cars subject to stock availability and excluding any other offers
Terms & Conditions apply.
5-year limitless mileage warranty
All models in the SsangYong range are covered by a best-in-class 5-year limitless mileage warranty. Designed to be totally transparent and give customers complete peace of mind, ‘limitless’ means just that: not a maximum mileage condition that some brands impose in their small print.
All the major mechanical components are covered including wheel bearings, suspension joints and bushes, steering joints, shock absorbers and even the audio system.
Wearable components such as clutch discs and brake friction materials which could have their life reduced by poor driving are covered for one year or 12,500 miles, and the battery and paintwork for three years.
