Redesigned SsangYong Rodius TeasedThursday, January 31, 2013 7:10 by Arman Barari
Finally, after years of terrorizing the world with its hideous Rodius minivan, Korean car maker SsangYong is finally giving in and redesigning it. These are the first pictures of the Rodius facelift, revealed ahead of the car’s debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March.
The current Rodius is so terrible that we didn’t really expect the new car to be anything special. Anything different would be good. But they’ve actually done a good job with the new model. It is a good looking car; more utility-looking than minivan. The new Rodius features SY’s signature grille and headlights, and modern and sleek lines all over the body.
“Based on its design philosophy ‘Robust, Premium, Specialty’, the new front line emphasizes Ssangyong’s boldness and its spacious body combines dynamics with sophistication.” SangYong explains: “Styled to be fit for outdoor, off-road driving as well as on-road driving with its streamline-shape of the radiator grille and headlamp, the new Rodius/Stavic also offers a whole package of convenience and practical values by fulfilling various needs from business, leisure, and travel.”
