Korean manufacturer Ssangyong is reportedly on the comeback from bankruptcy with an announcement today that it plans to show a production ready version of its C200 SUV at next month’s Seoul Motor Show (from April 2).
First seen at the Paris Motor Show last year, the C200 concept was designed in Italy and makes a dramatic move away from Ssangyong’s typical shark-nosed styling.
Similar to a RAV4 or CR-V in terms of size the C200 features a new monocoque body which should see the brand finally display some “car-like” handling. The new platform also allows Ssangyong to utilise both front and all-wheel drive arrangements.
The C200 will be powered by an all-new 2.0-litre turbo-diesel engine developing 130kW coupled to either a five-speed manual or six-speed auto transmission and will be Euro V emissions compliant.
As yet an official launch date has not been set.
