The new SsangYong C200 compact urban vehicle shown in pre-production form at the recent Seoul Motor Show in South Korea, is making its European debut at the Barcelona Motor Show early in May.

The car is scheduled for production later this year and should reach the UK inside 12 months.

Six speed auto and manual transmissions will be available as will two and four wheel drive.

Styled by Giugiaro’s ItalDesign in Italy, the C200 has a 2.65m wheelbase with an overall length of 4.4m. The car will undergo Euro NCAP crash testing before coming to market.
