The Ssangyong Korando -
Styled by legendary car designer Gioretto Giugiaro and recently updated, Korando is a true blend of Italian form and Korean function. The front end styling features a new grille and modern projector headlamps with LED daytime running lights to give a sharp contemporary look. This theme is followed through out with new wheels designs, new rear light clusters and new colour’s – but the simple elegance of Guugiaro’s original design is maintained throughout.
Korando is also noted for its generous levels of standard equipment and its 5 year limitless mileage warranty. Now Korando packs even greater value with alloy wheels, cruise control, puddle lamps, low windscreen de-icer, remote central locking and a host of other features standard across the range.
Korando’s height gives a commanding view with leather seats heated front and rear that smoothly adjust to fit you. There’s also air conditioning, high quality six speakers audio with Bluetooth MP3 / IPod connectivity and steering wheel controls, front,side and curtain airbags.
Korando’s Torque on demand 4×4 talks to itself, thinks and acts many times a second. A network of sensors maintain a stream of reports to the system’s central processor, which makes lightning decisions about power and breaking. The result :you’re always serenely in control.
Torque on demand 4×4 system
Korando EX features an advanced 4×4 system that operates in two modes, depending on conditions and settings
Auto mode – In auto mode and in normal conditions, Korando remains in two wheel drive to optimise fuel efficiency. When sensors detect a potential loss of grip, the system switches to four wheel drive mode.
Lock mode – For very loose or slippery surfaces, the 4×4 system can be locked to allocate drive equally between front and rear wheels. This provides supreme grip and control for low-speed manoeuvres.
Hill start assist -
A great ally when towing, this system acts like an automatic handbrake to prevent rolling backwards during a hill start.
ABS with electronic brakeforce distibbtion (EBD)
Electronic stability programme (ESP) with active rollover protection (ARP)
All Korando models benefit from these systems, which employ a variety of sensors to detect imminent loss of control or rollover, and use electronic control of the vehicle systems to maintain stability and traction.
Korando’s new e-XDi diesel engine is clean, efficient and powerful. Mated to a 6 speed manual transmission, it develops 149PS between 3400 – 4000rpm giving a wide spread of power – enough whether towing , off - roading or performing normal family duties.
In towing, numbers certainly tell the true story – Korando’s strudy construction and strong engine performance give a 2 tonne towing capacity across the range.
Korando is rapidly becoming a favourite of caravan towers, a fact recently recognised by Korando’s SE’s win in the Caravan Club Towcar of the years awards.
