2013 SsangYong Rodius gets a 155 HP 2.0-liter engine (UK)

SsangYong has slightly revised its Rodius MPV which has a starting price of 15,995 GBP.

The most noticeable change is the addition of a 2.0-liter e-XDi Euro 5-compliant engine capable of developing 155 HP (114 kW) and 360 Nm (265 lb-ft) of torque. It can return 38.7 mpg UK (32.2 mpg US or 7.3 liters / 100 km) in the combined cycle. It's the same engine powering the fairly attractive Korando Sports.

The seven-seater MPV comes as standard with front/rear electric windows, automatic climate control, Kenwood audio system, Bluetooth, along with safety features such as ABS, ESP and EBD.

While the standard variant gets a 6-speed manual gearbox, the ES trim is optionally available with a Mercedes-Benz-made 5-speed T-Tronic automatic transmission. Other added goodies include rear privacy glass, 16-inch alloys, heated leather front seats.

The range-topping EX brings on-demand four-wheel drive system and guarantees a towing capability of 2,000 kg (4,409 lbs). This version has a starting price of 21,995 GBP.
