SsangYong has officially revealed the new Stavic MPV, featuring a front face that is now easier on the eyes. However, it is still hardly good-looking, and apparently not as “handsome” as the earlier sketches suggest. Still, it’s less “bug-eyed” now, and features a redefined window line and a better thought-out wraparound rear window.
The MPV will be available with a nine-, ten- or eleven-seating configuration and offers up to 3,240 liters of cargo volume. Three trim levels are on offer: Luxury Touring (LT), Grand Touring (GT) and Royal Touring (RT). Inside, it retains the fascia architecture of the previous generation car and depending on the trim level, the new Rodius comes with navigation system, a touchscreen display and a multimedia system.
The second-gen Rodius will be sold with a 2.0L turbo diesel engine that is connected to either a 6-speed manual gearbox or a 5-speed Mercedes-Benz-sourced automatic transmission. In its home Korea market and in Russia, the new model will also be available with a 6-cylinder, 3.2-liter gasoline engine.
More details will be available after the car gets its European launch.
