The Korean company, which is owned by Shanghai Automotive Industry Corporation (SAIC), only sold 2,123 cars last year but intends to move around 3,500 units this year, having revised its specifications and pricing.

To achieve its ambitious aims, SsangYong has just finalised a joint venture with the Barbagallo group to improve efficiency and access to a wider dealer network.

SsangYong is now the first manufacturer in Australia to offer a diesel-only range with Russell Burling, the Director, insisting that Australians are moving towards diesel powered cars at a rapid rate.

The company has introduced new premium SPR variants (SPR stands for Super) which according to Mr Burling have all the boxes ticked from factory. The SPR models feature leather heated and electrically adjustable front seats, automatic lights and rain sensing wipers as well as rear parking sensors and T-tronic automatic transmission.

SsangYong has already landed 08 built stock in showrooms, taking only two weeks to import cars from Korea. All 2008 models will now come with ESP, front and side SRS airbags, Anti Rollover Protection (ARP), Brake-force Assist System(BAS) and Hill Descent control (HDC) as standard equipment.
