The updated SsangYong Korando is now available in South Africa!
The SsangYong Korando package has been streamlined with one petrol-powered model on offer. The list of standard features has increased when compared to the previous model and four exterior colours are available to customers.
The updated Korando gets a new set of headlights with LED Daytime Running Lights as well as a redesigned black mesh grille with a large SsangYong badge. The fog lamps are seen in the large lower air intake and are fitted as standard. The side mirrors are partially colour-coded and feature integrated indicators while the roofline is accentuated with low-profile rails.
The Korando also benefits from larger 17-inch alloy wheels as opposed to the previous 16-inch examples. Other features include a front scuff plate, sill extenders and rear apron finished in black.
On the inside, updated cloth upholstery and metallic accents add character to the interior. The Korando is fitted with electric windows, a six speaker sound system and cruise control. The audio system is MP3 and Bluetooth compatible and there’s a USB socket for connecting devices. The steering wheel features mounted audio and Bluetooth controls and the rear bench can split in a 60:40 configuration.
The engine remains the same as before and it’s a 2.0-litre unit that offers 110 kW and 197 Nm of torque mating to a 6-speed manual transmission powering the front wheels. Combined fuel consumption is rated at 7.5L/100km with an estimated travel range of 760 km from its 57-litre fuel tank.
In terms of safety, the updated Korando is fitted with dual front airbags, ABS and an alarm immobiliser.
