SsangYong

All models SsangYong

This Korean car maker has changed several hands in over half a century in the business and is currently owned by Mahindra and Mahindra Ltd of India, since 2011.

Once known for making jeeps for the US army, the company switched to manufacturing multipurpose vehicles in the 1970s. Its recent lauch, the Tivoli, brought it much success, recording the highest sales since 2003.

The automaker benefited greatly from a technology partnership with Daimler Benz in 1991, and now produces a hardy range of cars, including the Rexton XLV, which is an extended version of the Tivoli, and Korando, as well as pickups such as the Musso, and the Rodius.
