    What does this car say about you?

    I have a big family and I dont care if you don't like it ... And the the car, yes it is ugly, but have you looked in the mirror of late? We all see beauty in different ways.

    What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?

    They love it and the swivel seats are a big hit with the young and old alike (I hade to transport some OAP's recently).

    Would you buy this car again and why?

    Yes but next model up as it offers all i need.

    What are you likely to buy next?

    Another one of these or a Merc GL420 (if only I could get one for the same money - but at least i have a Merc engine)....

    I used to sell cars for a living, i know how to deal.

    I have a growing family and I am fed up with having no boot space, even the grand espace and grand voyager are tiny compaired to this car. At least SSangYong have considered the 'family' with this car.

    Great person to deal with.

  • Driving it

    What's it like to drive?

    I have no issue with it's size, the drive is fine, bit hard whoth or without a full load but that is better, keeps you from nodding off like some cars make you do. Turning is hard again down to it's size but then if you buy a car this big, you will expect the problems.

    What's it like to park?

    Rear parking sensors and large side mirrors make it a doddle, I always reverse into spaces so getting out again is never a problem. Anybody who dires a large family car should do so, it make everybodies lives easier.
