Following the spyshots of the car, Ssangyong has released the official sketches of the next gen Ssangyong Rodius. Thankfully the design is a clear departure from the earlier car which is considered as an eye sore by most of the people.

The big MPV is expected to be powered by Ssangyong’s 2.0 litre diesel engine that was developed in house and also powers Korando C. The engine reportedly comes in two states of tune – 148 bhp and 173 bhp. The car could also use Mercedes licensed 3.2 litre petrol motor.

Given that the car has already hit the public roads complete with badges, we reckon that the next gen Ssangyong Rodius is not far away from its global debut. A Geneva Motor Show unveil is our hunch.
