The team at August Motors

SsangYong Motors UK has added August Motors to its dealer network.

The SsangYong showroom, located in Salisbury, features the model line-up of the Rexton, Musso, Tivoli and Korando.

Kevin Griffin, managing director (MD) at SsangYong Motors UK, said: “We are thrilled to welcome August Motors to the SsangYong franchise.

“The group endeavours to provide customers with excellent service and has values that match our own.

“We are very much looking forward to working with the experience team in Salisbury and welcome them on board.”

The showroom also features ‘modern facilities’, hospitality area, as well as free Wi-Fi.

SsangYong recently added Blackshaws to its franchised car retail network. 

During 2021 SsangYong attracted 20 new car dealers from the discontinued Mitsubishi Motors in the UK new car retail franchise, including North City SsangYong in Chingford.

August Motors, which is part of the 1971 founded Balmer Lawn Group, also has showrooms operating in Brockenhurst, New Milton, and Dibden Purlieu.

August Motors, part of the Balmer Lawn Group, celebrates 51 years in the trade this year.

Paul Lamar and Louise Parker, managing directors for the group, said: “Even after all these years, we still strive to constantly deliver a premium service to every customer.

“We value integrity, honesty, and transparency in our dealings. We are delighted to add the SsangYong range to our Salisbury customer offering and look forward to a successful partnership.”

Last month (June), SsangYong Motor UK hailed its return to profitability after seven years of losses as a “major milestone” in a year of restricted new car supplies and continued COVID-19 disruption.
