SsangYong Stavic 2L Diesel Arrives From RM115,900.00
After almost 3-years and an investment of USD165 million, SsangYong has brought to the market an all new Stavic luxury MPV. This luxury MPV has been developed to combine multi role flexibility and the ride comfort and appointments of a luxury saloon within an all new shape. With key features such as its innovative and flexible design layout, luxurious interior and competitive position in the market place, the new Stavic offers a dynamically strong and distinctive look.
SsangYong’s designers have gone to great lengths to create a distinctive and innovative look to its new MPV that will please owners and observers alike. The brief was to create a sporting while at the same time luxurious and dignified tone that would blend well with the car’s numerous roles.
Combining strength and fluidity, the front of the car has a robust stance thanks to its hexagonal shaped radiator grille and trapezoidal bumper, and the overall design successfully disguises its large exterior volume.
Thanks to its 3000mm wheelbase, the car provides a huge internal space where seven adults can travel in supreme comfort together with their luggage, and without having to compromise on passenger capacity. There are three rows of seats as well as a large load area which can be further increased by removing the third row completely. The second row of seats can be folded individually and used as tables, and there is still sufficient room to accommodate airline style seat back folding tables.
The Stavic is powered by SsangYong’s own 2.0 litre turbo charged e-XDi200 diesel engine offering a level of performance and NVH that have already been tested, proven and praised in the marketplace. The e-XDi200 engine offers maximum power of 155ps @ 4000rpm and maximum torque of 360Nm @1,500-2,800rpm, and is designed to provide low end torque whatever the conditions on or off road. There is a 5-speed T-Tronic automatic gearbox, ensuring world-class durability, smooth gear-changing performance and quiet operation.
Ride & handling
This new Stavic utilises double wishbone front suspension and rear independent multi-link suspension for executive saloon style ride quality. This set up offers a quiet and comfortable driving environment yet with firm body motion control, a flat ride and optimum stability regardless of the road conditions.
This Stavic features a comprehensive package of safety features, including ABS and dual front airbags. Passive safety is further increased thanks to two high strength sub-frames fitted to the front and rear of the car. These help to disperse any impact shocks from a frontal or off set collision and protect passengers by minimising cabin distortion.
Luxury, comfort and convenience
Noted for its comprehensive levels of standard equipment, SsangYong has ensured that this new Stavic delivers a new level of luxury, comfort and convenience. Air conditioning and an Air Quality System to detect and prevent the ingress of hazardous gases such as carbon monoxide or hydrocarbons to maintain air quality, Eco Cruise Control and rear parking sensors with reverse camera, all make driving easier. Leather upholstery, electrically adjustable front seats, and an MP3 CD & RDS radio with will GPS navigation, a USB & auxiliary port and Bluetooth connectivity are included.
The all new SsangYong Stavic comes with a 3-years or 100,000 kilometres factory backed warranty. Lot 11, Jalan 219, Seksyen 51A, Federal Highway, 46100, Petaling Jaya, Selangor D.E. Malaysia. Please visit www.ssangyong.com.my for more information.
