SsangYong is now the third main carmaker in Korea
Taking advantage of GM Korea's difficulties, the only brand to record downward sales, SsangYong has become the third major Korean carmaker behind Hyundai and Kia. It happened in September and is the first time it happens.
The SUV manufacturer, whose majority share is owned by the Indian Mahindra, has sold 9,465 units and, thanks to the 3,70 vehicles sold abroad, for the first time this year exceeded the overall threshold of 13,000 units.
SsangYong launched the new generation of Rexton and a revised version of Tivoli in recent months.
