Ssangyong launches new Korando SUV
Ssangyong has launched the 2017 Korando SUV at the Geneva International Motor Show. The car sports a new-look front aspect, which has been redesigned to maximise the car’s robust character with a distinctive new shoulder-wing grille and headlight treatment, while safety has also been improved with the addition of a front view camera- a first in this class of SUV. Here’s the news from Ssangyong:
The new Korando SUV is designed for young families seeking an active lifestyle, and will appeal to those requiring a car that can handle the rough and tumble of family life – plenty of interior space for growing children and generous boot space for all their leisure equipment.
The new car also gets both front and rear view safety cameras for greatly enhanced safety, allowing the driver to monitor blind spots around the vehicle when parking or moving at low speed.
There is the choice between a 7” colour display offering a mirroring function to connect between a smart phone or an HDMI cable, and TomTom 7” navigation: both support the video camera displays, Bluetooth hands-free and iPod connectivity.
The new Korando is powered by a choice of a turbo-charged, Euro 6 compliant 2.2 litre diesel or 2.0 litre petrol engine, and is matched with either a 6-speed manual or optional 6-speed Aisin automatic transmission for smooth, dynamic gear changing, comfortable driving and lively acceleration. The car also comes with either front wheel-drive, or a smart, on-demand all-wheel drive system, making it the ultimate leisure vehicle.
