Ssangyong Turismo:

The Ssangyong Turismo offers of space at an affordable price it even looks better its Rodius predecessor. But is that to get people into Ssangyong We don’t think so.

What: Turismo

Ssangyong Turismo: impressions

Meet the 2014 Turismo – the car that replaces the the Korean firm’s former MPV. This is more just a name change,

The Turismo’s not fast and the auto holds on to gears too long

with that car, the gets a design overhaul, the car now boasts a more European The headlights are sharper and the grille defined, giving a much cohesive look, while the has received the same treatment. it’s still no oil painting.

Inside, the Turismo is more than the old Rodius, according to The Korean firm claims to coated the cabin with soft-touch materials, while the now grips a leather-trimmed steering wheel.

The awkward looks may have evolved, but the core values haven’t The Turismo still offers an amount of space for the money, this a car aimed at family on a budget.


Ssangyong performance

Whereas the Rodius was by a Mercedes-sourced 2.7-litre five-cylinder in the Turismo it’s been by Ssangyong’s own 155hp 2.0-litre oil-burner.

In the firm’s 2.1-tonne W SUV this engine is not that the bad news is, in the 2,750kg Turismo even slower.

The Ssangyong exactly agile

The turbodiesel we tested is far from refined. it delivers a decent 265lb ft of torque from as low as 1,500rpm, by the motor’s given all it has to offer. here it just drones and away.

That’d be fine in a manual where you could change up and avoid the racket, however our car was fitted with Mercedes’ automatic transmission.

It holds on to too long, meaning you stray that noisy rev band you’re after some (and you will be). it eventually changes, at least the are nice and smooth.

It’s to pootle rather than it, then. Doing so means the Turismo is a much more experience – besides, it also less from the chassis…

Ssangyong Turismo: ride and

The Turismo uses a double suspension set-up at the front and a independent multi-link arrangement at the – in short, quite a sophisticated for a big, cheap people

Inside, the Turismo’s bargain becomes more apparent

a shame that this detail doesn’t translate to ability. A seven-seat MPV is never to break any lap records, but the Turismo particularly soft, rolling a lot in the

The steering, too, doesn’t confidence. It feels removed what’s actually going on at the surface, to the point where you can the wheel rim mid-corner and not actually your line.

It’s not by the Turismo’s incredible three-metre – this sizeable distance the axles coupled to slow means that, even for an the Ssangyong isn’t exactly

At least the soft suspension gives a comfortable ride on a Given the Turismo packs for seven, that’s definitely a thing.


Ssangyong interior

The level of space the offers in quite incredible – up to a of 3,146 litres of luggage with the back seat and the second row fully folded. As you’ll still be able to in 875 litres worth of stuff the rear bench slid all the way That’s quite an achievement.

However, the 2-2-3 layout of the is far from ideal; the middle row is available with two individual meaning many families have to rely on the back row which doesn’t split. And will impinge on boot Furthermore, removing the rearmost for van-lugging duties requires a effort — it’s a heavy seat to remove.

The musters a best of 34.9mpg with 212g/km CO2

While has updated the cabin, it’s lacking compared to its rivals. there are higher quality inside, but the majority of the trim is hard and scratchy throughout the There is a caveat, though: sure this robustness help it cope with life.

Inside, the Turismo’s becomes more apparent. such as the tell-tale light in front of the steering wheel dials are mounted in the centre of the look extremely old-school.

Ssangyong Turismo: and safety

Ssangyong Turismo: the MSN Cars

The Ssangyong Turismo is an improvement the Rodius – not least because it a great deal better despite its comparatively lacklustre economy, it’s actually efficient than its predecessor.

The on offer from just is attractive, and there’s a five-year mileage warranty too. it’s left wanting in areas, not least its dated layout, lacklustre driving and higher-than-average running costs. As a alternative to established seven-seat its appeal is limited.
