They used to be a byword for grey plastic and a dull drive, but in the last decade or so cars from Korea have got more and more appealing.

One of the brands from the far eastern nation, Ssangyong, has been overhauling its lineup in recent years to modernise its appearance in a bid to compete with rivals Hyundai and Kia as well as European brands from further afield.

Now, on top of the good looks of its latest models, Ssangyong has announced new finance offers to entice potential customers. The company is offering a number of deals on its Tivoli hatchback and the Korando SUV.

The Tivoli is available with zero percent finance for both the standard and XLV model, in petrol or diesel. What's more, the diesel models are available with zero deposit too, and monthly finance prices start at just £149. The Korando is available with zero percent finance as well.

All finance offers last five years, as does Ssangyong's cross-range, unlimited mile warranty.

'SsangYong is now known for its extremely well-equipped cars at superb prices, and with these new offers we can help customers save even more money on their cost of motoring,' said Nick Laird, managing director of Ssangyong Motor UK.

'These latest offers will help Ssangyong owners better plan their finances over five years. With fair and affordable prices, comprehensive levels of equipment, a five-year limitless mileage warranty no other brand can match and Korean reliability, we are sure our customers are getting the best value cars available in Britain.'

You've got a little bit of time to make your decision to buy a new Tivoli, but you should probably hurry – the whole range of finance offers announced by Ssangyong are only available until 30 June 2018.
