SsangYong will return to the UK with a model line up featuring a range of high quality top value modes. Leading the launch in September is the new SsangYong Korando crossover. This new crossover offers European styling, superb versatility and efficient engineering with prices starting at £16,995.
The Ssang Yong Korando’s new e-XDi200 engine is at the very heart of the crossover’s appeal. It has a high power output of 175PS, superb combined cycle fuel economy of 6.0 l/100km (47mpg) and CO2 emissions of only 157g/km.
Paul Williams, CEO of the UK importer, SsangYong Motor UK said “Korando is a great value proposition, and arrives in the highly competitive crossover market at absolutely the right time. It is very keenly priced with a comprehensive list of standard equipment, excellent towing capability and thanks to its long wheelbase has a spacious and airy interior; Korando is the clever choice for families and those who tow a caravan, horsebox or trailer.”
With a choice of six speed manual or automatic transmissions, buyers can opt for S or ES trim in their front wheel drive Korando, or top of the range EX specification in four wheel drive models. Even the entry level variant comes equipped with cruise control, ESP with Hill Start Assist and reverse parking sensors as standard, while the ES and EX come with a sunroof, climate control, leather upholstery and heated front and rear seats.
