SsangYong releases new Rodius sketchesThu, 07 Feb 2013 00:00:00 -0800
SsangYong has released the first images of its new Rodius MPV, soon to be unveiled at next month's Geneva motor show.
Based on SsangYong's ‘Robust, Premium, Specialty' design philosophy the carmaker says the new Rodius is "styled to be fit for outdoor, off-road driving as well as on-road driving".
The front three-quarter sketch shows that the exaggerated, streamlined front grille has been retained – albeit it with a slight modification – while it also features angular headlamps.
A strong character line emerges from the headlamps and stretches along the side, ending just before the rear lamps. The creases around the wheelarches have also been carried over.
From the rear three-quarter sketch it is clearer to see the rocker running parallel to the character line, starting behind the front wheelarch and ending just before the rear wheelarch. The sloping D-pillar has been carried over from the previous Rodius while it also features large, angular rear lamps.
