SsangYong has updated its Korando SUV with a redesigned grille and headlights, intended to bring the Korando in line with its other models: the Tivoli, the Tivoli XLV and the recently-announced Rexton.
The Korando gets new fog lights, a lower valance and bonnet, LED daytime running lights and a new steering wheel. The SUV can accommodate five people, has a 2-tonne towing capacity and a 1,312-litre boot.
Driven by a 2.2-litre diesel engine, the Korando produces 180hp and has a maximum torque of 400Nm. The engine can be paired with either a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic transmission.
All models have electrically operated and heated door mirrors with puddle lamps, RDS radio, iPod and Bluetooth connectivity, air conditioning, tinted glass and roof rails as standard.
The top-of-the-range ELX adds front and rear parking sensors, rear-view camera, seven-inch touchscreen, TomTom satnav, 18-inch wheels, leather seats, heated steering wheel and heated front and rear seats.
The 2WD SE starts from £17,000, the 4×4 SW from £18,500, the 4×4 ELX from £22,000 and the ELX with automatic transmission from £23,500. The Korando SUV comes with SsangYong’s five-year unlimited mileage warranty and is on sale now.
