SsangYong Korando Pickup
(Thursday 16 August 2012)
Korean manufacturer SsangYong will introduce its new Korando Sports pickup to the UK in October. There will be two versions, both of them with a 153bhp two-litre turbo diesel engine, part-time four-wheel drive, a 2.04 square metre load area, a towing capacity of 2.3 tonnes, air-conditioning, Bluetooth connectivity, reclining rear seats and a five-year unlimited mileage warranty.
All this and more applies to the entry-level SX. There's also a more highly-equipped EX model, which gets larger 18" alloy wheels, leather upholstery, seat warmers, powered adjustment of the driver's seat, rear parking sensors and heated, electric, power-folding door mirrors.
Optional extras include six-speed automatic transmission (with cruise control) and a rigid hard top. Pricing will be confirmed in the autumn.
