According to the head of the Russian company Vadim Shvetsov, the assembly of the new model will establish in Tatarstan, which has produced three models of SsangYong, and the modernization of production by the release of another vehicle will cost about 5-10 million dollars.

The design of the crossover was developed in Italy and in the creation of the concept of the new model directly involved representatives of Sollers. CX200 will be the most compact car in the line of SsangYong: its length is about 4, 4 m, width - 1, 8 meters.

Competitors SsangYong CX200 become popular "SUV" like the Toyota RAV4, Land Rover Freelander, Ford Kuga and so on. As expected, this crossover will be produced in both front- and all-wheel drive version with the electronic transmission. Price yet, but we can assume that in Russia CX200 will cost about 800 thousand rubles, and after the launch of its production in Tatarstan - even less.
