SsangYong relaunches Rodius


Big in size, huge in value, the SsangYong Rodius combines the luxury and sophistication of a saloon with the versatility and spaciousness you’d expect from a large people carrier.

Measuring 5125mm long, 1915mm wide and 1820mm tall, the seven-seater Rodius is, simply, the largest MPV in its class and offers exceptional performance and handling for the size. With high standard specification, flexible centre seating and cavernous boot space you’d expect it to cost the earth – think again.


Now SsangYong have joined forces with Cab Direct to relaunch the Rodius in the taxi market. And the great news for cabbies is that the Rodius now comes with the reassurance of a special 3 year, 250,000 mile taxi warranty, providing you with one of the best guarantees in the business.

For the taxi operator Cab Direct now offer the Rodius S and ES, each with a 2.7 litre turbo diesel engine, producing 163bhp and 342Nm of pulling power.

The 270 S starts from the amazingly low price of only £14,495 and is equipped with ABS, remote keyless entry, speed-sensing door locks, climate control and Kenwood audio system. It is also hugely practical with multiple seat variations and useful extras such as two 12v DC power outlets.

The Rodius 270 ES gains reverse parking sensors, auto headlights, electric folding mirrors, privacy glass, alloy wheels, ESP and leather upholstery for only £2,000 more. Mercedes T-Tronic 5-speed automatic transmission is also available and is expected to prove popular with the taxi trade.

Sales Director of Cab Direct, Peter Facenna, commented: “Being the largest MPV in its class, the Rodius is tailor-made for the taxi trade. And at such an affordable price it offers unrivalled value for money. We are extremely happy to be working with SsangYong and expect the Rodius to be a big hit with drivers.”
