New SsangYong Rodius Review
SsangYong's answer to the seven seater MPV market is the Rodius and as with all SsangYong models you get plenty of car for your cash. Bigger than the people carriers on offer from Renault, the Grand Espace and the Chrysler Grand Voyager, the Rodius is bigger than most MPV's on offer from any other manufacturer, giving plenty of room for the driver and up to six passengers.
The Rodius has so much space due to the fact that it was originally designed to carry eleven people for its native Korean market and because this version of the Rodius will not be available in the UK we benefit from all that extra room, enough room to carry seven people and their luggage.
Powered by a 163 bhp 2.7 litre turbo diesel engine, the Rodius has a choice of either manual or automatic transmissions and as with all SsangYong models you get plenty kit for your money. S models benefit from front and rear power windows, cruise control (auto only), a parking aid system, adjustable steering wheel, ABS with EBD (Electronic Brake Distribution), door impact beams, dual airbags, power assisted steering, a Thatcham Cat 1 Alarm / Immobiliser and a single CD Player/RDS Radio (Ice pack 1). Move up to the SE and you get the addition of a Centre storage console, ESP Â? Electronic stability programme and a 5 CD changer plus single CD player/RDS radio (ICE Pack 2). Top of the range is the SX, standard features on this trim level include an electronically adjustable drivers seat, privacy glass in the rear doors, quarter lights and tail gate, 16" alloys, satellite navigation, a 5 CD changer plus single CD player/RDS radio (Ice pack 3), leather upholstery with heated driver and front passenger seats and permanent 4WD (TOD) making it the only 4x4 that exists as an MPV.
Like the looks of the SsangYong Rodius, why not check out the Chrysler Grand Voyager, the Citroen C8, the Vauxhall Zafira, the Peugeot 807, the VW Sharan, the Renault Grand Scenic or the Ford Galaxy.
