Ssangyong C200 concept SUV
Revealed at the Paris Motor Show, the Ssangyong C200 is SS’s first SUV with a unibody construction as it is the first with a front-wheel drive.
This basically means that Ssangyong is going expand its range with passenger cars and multipurpose vehicles.
And with a concept SUV styled by Giorgetto Giugiaro’s ItalDesign studio (the one responsible for the legendary DeLorean DMC-12 from the Back to the Future trilogy), the Chinese-owned SsangYong Motor Company shows its strong intention to eventually start producing cars that can even be called beautiful.
During the next five years, SsangYong UK managing director Paul Williams says, his company plans to start producing 20 new models, developed on five new platforms.
The C200 is a good hint of SsangYong’s new design philosophy.
