The new 2.2 litre SsangYong Korando crossover is now available as a special LE model, and features a wealth of additional luxury equipment that includes 18” diamond cut alloy wheels, sat nav & sidesteps. It is finished in white, metallic black, blue and new Galaxy Green.
Powered by a new powertrain featuring a 2.2 litre diesel Euro 6 engine, the LE comes in two-wheel drive with either a 6-speed manual or Aisin 6-speed automatic transmission for smooth gear changing and an enhanced driving performance.
“This is a great-value addition to the Korando range,” says Paul Williams, CEO of SsangYong Motor UK, “and adds several thousand pounds’ worth of equipmenton top of the already comprehensive specification. Korando delivers unrivaled levels of equipment and value, and no other car in its class has such a strong towing capability, nor such a comprehensive warranty for complete peace of mind.”
The newly developed e-XDi220 diesel engine meets the demand for a more powerful performance and lower CO2 emissions. Maximum power of 178ps and maximum torque of 400Nm are delivered from a low of 1,400rpm and maintained through a wide range up to 2,800rpm for smooth, progressive driving from the start. CO2 emissions are reduced to 139g/km, while fuel economy is up to 53.3mpg (Combined cycle).
Designed by the Italian styling house Giugiaro, the Korando sports stylish clear glass direction indicators, a piano black radiator grille and distinctive 18’’ diamond cut alloy wheels and sidesteps on this new LE.
The LE also features a 7” high-resolution touch screen with audio streaming from smart devices and a link to the rear view camera, as well as a TomTom navigation system, including a USB memory slot, Aux port and HDMI port.
Other features include automatic air conditioning, heated front seats, privacy glass, rear spoiler with high mounted LED brake light and rear parking sensors.
