New Ssangyong Korando SUV goes on sale

7 Ssangyong Korando (2019)

Ssangyong has launched its new Korando C-segment SUV, with prices starting from £19,995 and CO2 from 144g/km.

The fourth generation Korando will be available with a Euro 6D-T compliant 1.6-litre diesel engine producing 136PS, and – later – a Euro 6D-T compliant 1.5 GDI turbo petrol engine, producing 163PS.

The diesel engine has CO2 emissions of 144g/km (NEDC) and fuel economy of up to 48.7mpg on the WLTP combined cycle.

Full vehicle and performance figures for the 1.5 GDI petrol engine will be available in December.

Korando, which has a two-tonne towing capacity, will be available with either two-or four wheel drive, and with either a manual or six-speed automatic transmission with selectable drive modes.

All models feature an infotainment system that includes digital radio, Bluetooth and MP3 connectivity, while Apple CarPlay and Android Auto come with the middle and top specification models, as does a reversing camera.

Top models feature a nine-inch screen with sat-nav or an eight-inch screen on mid-trim levels.

Available safety equipment includes active rollover protection, forward collision warning, autonomous emergency braking, lane departure warning, lane keeping assist and driver attention alert.

Earlier this year, Ssangyong managing director Nick Laird told Fleet News the Korando is a key part of its ambition to grow business sales in the UK.

He said: “Korando projects us into a much broader market and will be much more competitive with some of the other mainstream models.

“That will provide us with a bunch of opportunities in the retail and business user markets.”
