SsangYongís new C200 model has made its debut at the Seoul Motor Show in two versions and with three choices of power. The car is scheduled for production later this year and should reach export markets during 2010.

The C200 is smaller and lighter than current SsangYong models, promising much improved fuel economy and lower CO2 emissions. Dubbed a compact urban vehicle (CUV), the C200 Eco uses diesel hybrid power and the Aero version has a choice of a high torque 2.0 diesel or turbocharged 1.8 litre petrol engines.

SsangYong expects class-leading fuel economy and CO2 emissions reduced by 50 per cent in the Eco. Show cars have a six-speed auto transmission, but manual versions will also be available.

Styled by Giugiaroís ItalDesign in Italy, the C200 has a 2.65 m wheelbase with an overall length of 4.4m. The car will undergo Euro NCAP crash testing before its release on the world's car markets.

SsangYong is also showing a diesel hybrid version of itís Kyron model at the Seoul Motor Show.

The Seoul Motor Show opened yesterday.

Like many vehicle manufacturers, SsangYong remains in a financially embarrassing situation. The ability of the majority Chinese owned South Korean brand to export their new models around the world will depend upon their ability to retain their market presence.
