SsangYong slashes prices by up to $6588

Pile them high: SsangYong has not held back with the discounts, whipping up to 18 per cent off the price of some products in an end-of-year sell-off.

SsangYong Stavic, Kyron and Rexton get big price cuts until end of the year

11 Nov 2011

SSANGYONG has moved to give its slower-selling models a boost, with big discounts available until the end of this year on its Kyron and Rexton SUVs and Stavic people-mover.

Prices are unchanged on the Actyon (SUV and ute) and Korando compact SUV that was launched here in February.

The biggest price cut by the Mahindra-owned South Korean company is applied to the seven-seat Stavic, which is reduced by $6588 across the range, resulting in an 18 per cent reduction in the entry-level price to $29,990 drive away.

That makes it the cheapest diesel-powered vehicle in its segment and should help lift sales for the vehicle, of which only 43 examples have been sold year-to-date – down 21.8 per cent.

The entry cost of a medium-sized Rexton seven-seat SUV falls 14 per cent to $34,990 drive away, with the same $5688 discount applied to all variants of the vehicle, sales of which are down 41.5 per cent to 137 year-to-date.

The price of a base-model 2.0-litre turbo-diesel Kyron mid-sized SUV, sales of which are up 3.3 per cent YTD to 93 units, drops seven per cent to $28,990 – just $1000 more than the smaller but newer Korando – as part of a $2201 saving across all variants.

While official drive-away prices for the Actyon Tradie dual-cab ute (from $24,990 in base 4x2 form) are unchanged, SsangYong has provided dealers with “bonuses to assist them with sales during the run-out of the current model”.

All SsangYongs come with a three-year/100,000 kilometre warranty except the Korando (from $27,990 drive away), which extends the period to five years.

SsangYong has sold 230 4x2 Actyon utes YTD, with 300 of the 4x4 finding homes, while 504 Korandos have been sold since its February showroom debut.

Just 24 of SsangYong’s slowest seller, the Actyon SUV – which does not have standard ESC and as such has been withdrawn from Victorian showrooms – have been sold this year, a 20 per cent decline on an already low 30 units achieved for the same period in 2010.

Although these numbers are small, SsangYong has sold 40 per cent more vehicles in Australia to the end of October.

The company’s upward trend is expected to continue next year with the Australian arrival of the stylish new SUT-1 ute, which made its world debut in production form at the Frankfurt show in September.
