REMOVE some of the concept car detailing and the XAV-Adventure - seen at the recent Frankfurt Motor Show — is a good look at the planned replacement for SsangYong's current Korando. It will mark a stark transformation when it arrives in 2017, with chunky styling, plus technology — including LED daytime running lights - that will make it far more appealing than today's Korando.
While the panoramic canvas roof may not make production, SsangYong's E-4WD system could do. It features two electric motors driving the rear wheels, with a choice of 1.6-litre petrol or diesel engines powering the front wheels. The result is a unique four-wheel-drive set-up and much-reduced fuel consumption.
