What the Press say about:


The latest Korando has been announced by SsangYong, and for 2016 it features a more powerful 176bhp 2.2-litre diesel engine. But despite the increase, CO₂ emission and fuel economy figures are better than before. Two-wheel-drive editions now emit 139g/km of CO₂, with 53.3mpg capable on the combined cycle, which compares favourably to the 147g/km and 47.1mpg managed by the outgoing 2.0-litre model. 


Inevitably prices have increased by £1000 compared to before, with the six model line-up kicking off at £15,995. Both entry-level SE models and mid-range EX versions are offered with a choice of both two- and four-wheel-drive, while the top-of-the-range ELX editions come paired to four-wheel-drive, with the option of a six-speed manual or automatic transmission. Like its predecessor, the Korando is likely to win buyers thanks to its superb towing capacity of 2,000kg for all versions. 

Every model features air conditioning, 16-inch alloy wheels, roof rails, a leather steering wheel and gear knob, LED daytime running lights, cruise control, Bluetooth mobile phone connectivity, power folding door mirrors and electric windows all round. Mid-specification EX versions include heated front seats, climate control, rear privacy glass, larger 17-inch alloy wheels, a seven-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth audio streaming, rear parking sensors and an auto-dimming rear view mirror. The flagship ELX version adds TomTom satellite navigation, a reversing camera, chrome detailing to the speaker grilles and door handles, larger 18-inch alloy wheels, a piano black and chrome front grille, as well as leather upholstery, an electrically adjustable driver’s seat and heated chairs front and rear. As before, all models come with SsangYong’s industry beating five-year limitless mileage warranty, with the first examples arriving in showrooms around now. Prices start at £16,995 for the SE 2WD and rise to £22,495 for the ELX 4WD automatic.
