Who says you can’t have everything – including the kitchen sink – at a really decent price? Whoever said that has never taken a SsangYong Chairman out for a spin! The SsangYong motor company is based in Southern Korea, and was once tied to Mercedes Benz. The products that come from SsangYong are modern and fresh. It shows that the time spent with Mercedes Benz has helped to make SangYong vehicles a great option for discerning new car buyers. They are well built and nicely finished vehicles.
The elegantly styled SsangYong Chairman comes with a choice of 4 different petrol engines. There are three inline dual-overhead cam 6-cylinder engines, and one petrol inline dual-overhead cam 4-cylinder engine. Linked to these well designed engines is a Mercedes-Benz 5-speed automatic gearbox. The result is a responsive and smooth package. The roomy sedan sits nicely on the road and provides lots of grip.
What sets the SsangYong Chairman (which is SsangYong’s flagship model) apart from the competition are all the luxury features that are thrown in as standard – and the list is extensive. The luxury items are incredible. Eight-way power memory seats that are heated to eight different intensities, a tilt and telescoping steering wheel, cruise control, a noise dampening windscreen, automatic headlamp activation and shut-off, fully automatic climate control with an air quality system, overhead storage compartments for smaller items, two moveable illuminated ashtrays, adjustable rear footrests, and a 6-CD auto changer with premium audio that boasts 10 awesome speakers which provide an amazing audio experience when seated inside the Chairman’s cabin. The audio system has its controls on the steering wheel. There are even powered rear seats! They are powered to allow better access into the rear seat space. When the car is shut down, the rear seats slide back.
Safety is very good in the SsangYong Chairman. The vehicle includes front and side airbags, seatbelt pretensioners, a swing away brake pedal, a brake pad replacement indicator and remote keyless entry that boasts a folding wing-mirror function. There is a very handy and clever feature that prevents the windows from closing if something is in the way. This is called a panic alarm function.
Slip into a SsangYong Chairman and experience the ride and comfort levels that are usually associated with new cars demanding a much higher price tag. Be impressed!
