SsangYong has launched a new version of its Korando crossover with extra equipment.

The Korando LE costs from £17,995 with a manual gearbox and £18,995 with the six-speed auto, and is supplied with the latest 2.2-litre Euro 6 diesel powertrain and in front-wheel-drive format.

Extra equipment added to the model includes 18-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels, Tom Tom satellite navigation and side steps. The seven-inch high resolution touchscreen also accepts audio streaming from smart devices and links to the rear-view parking camera, while a USB memory slot, Aux port and HDMI port are also included.

Further standard equipment on the model includes automatic air conditioning, heated front seats, privacy glass, a rear spoiler with high mounted LED brake light and rear parking sensors.

LE variants are available in white, metallic black, blue and the new Galaxy Green exterior colour.

SsangYong has enjoyed significant success with the Korando, the budget model boosted by a two-tonne towing capability and a five-ear unlimited mileage warranty.
