SsangYong is launching its All New Korando with a contemporary exterior design, a refined, premium quality and spacious interior, enhanced driver assistance and safety systems, plus state-of-the-art connectivity.
New Korando boasts an all-new and distinctive style, from the front it is both fresh and new, whilst maintaining a clear SsangYong-look in common with Tivoli and Rexton. In profile that SsangYong family feel is extended with a strong outline, bold character lines and powerful wheel arches, as seen in recent models.
New Korando is slightly longer and wider than its predecessor, with an increased wheelbase to give class-leading interior space but being lower gives a more dynamic and energetic look.
The new Korando is both fresh and contemporary but remains an extremely practical family vehicle with substantial carrying capacity and a towing ability of up to 2 tonnes.
This all-new C segment SUV will be powered by new 1.5 litre turbo petrol and updated 1.6 litre diesel Euro 6d engines.
The interior of new Korando exudes contemporary styling and a high-quality finish. The wrap around feel comprises metallic features, large LCD screens, stylish mood lighting and lush leather seats. It’s a montage of style and technology rarely seen in an auto interior designed to delight and cosset the driver.
Technology is a strong feature with a ‘blaze cockpit’ on top models which comprises a 12” full colour LCD programmable instrument cluster linked to a 9” centre screen which includes heating and air-conditioning controls and an infotainment system with Apple CarPlay/Android Auto and TomTom navigation all topped off with infinitely variable colour mood lighting.
Interior styling is dominated by a horizontal metallic line feature which includes the fresh-air vents and is inspired by the fretboard of a musical instrument.
The interior is strikingly spacious due to the generous width and wheelbase of new Korando which provides better head-room and rear seat space than its competitors. Korando’s dimensions also give a substantial boot space with rear seats in position and a truly cavernous space with rear seats folded. A flexible luggage board is provided to create a fully flat floor with rear seats folded and which create useful hidden storage when applied.
