SsangYong York, ideally located on the A64 on the outskirts of York, is now open and home to the all-new range of vehicles from SsangYong.
SsangYong York is privately owned and located within the showroom facility of Optimum Vehicles at the landmark Bilbrough Top Services on the A64 between York and Leeds.
The premises were purpose built as a Land Rover main dealer facility and the site has been associated with the brand and as a 4X4 centre for over 25 years.
Optimum Vehicles have been supplying quality used vehicles throughout the region, indeed nationally, for over 12 years and have built a reputation as a market leader in their sector based on supplying vehicles prepared to the very highest standards backed up by excellent aftersales and customer service.
The showroom is purpose built housing 15 cars with a further 100 cars on the external forecourt; the workshops were also specifically designed and built to accommodate the servicing requirements of a full range of SUV’s.
Optimum Vehicles relocated to Bilbrough Top in December 2018 and have continued to expand culminating in a search to find a Manufacturer with identical values to find the symmetry which would enable us to offer a range of new vehicles to compliment our stock of excellent used vehicles.
“Our commitment to supplying a quality product backed up by the very highest levels of customer service and support lead us to developing this fantastic franchise opportunity with what must surely be the most underrated car manufacturer in the UK – as a business we have been impressed with the entire range and have 100% belief in, and commitment to, the brand!” says Managing Director Paul Sanderson
The Manufacturer was established in 1954 producing trucks, buses and special purpose vehicles many of which were for export.
Over the next 30 years the brand was associated mainly with hard and soft top Jeeps and eventually took the name SsangYong in 1986
A strategic partnership with Mercedes Benz followed in 1991 which allowed SsangYong to develop products using Mercedes Benz technology and in 2011 the Company was taken over by the Mahindra Group enabling further investment in developing an all new range of vehicles.
The latest range of vehicles are powered by SsangYongs’s own range of all-new diesel and petrol engines – this innovative technology is backed in the UK by a market leading 7 year/150,000 miles warranty for total peace of mind.
In 2015 the Group bought the world renowned Italian Styling House of Pininfarina to develop the Interior and Exterior styling of the vehicles in tandem with the very latest technology and engine line up – representing the best value for money range of new SUV’s on the market today.
