Sep 05, 2019

Less than a month after its successful launch in the UK, the all-new SsangYong Korando has been awarded the highest-possible safety rating by Euro NCAP. The all-new vehicle possesses the space and capabilities of a traditional SUV and features a whole range of enhancements to the outgoing model. It pairs new stylish exterior and interior design with advanced safety and infotainment technologies, as well as efficient new powertrains complying with future emission standards. All wrapped up with a comprehensive and market-leading 7-year/ 150,000-mile warranty.

Equipped with excellent and enhanced levels of safety, the Korando achieved 88% for adult occupant protection, 85% for child occupant protection, 68% for pedestrian protection, and 74% in the ‘Safety Assist’ category.

With the high-strength steel construction, the Korando is stiffer than its competitors, featuring 74% high density steel, which not only gives greatly improved body strength but also reduced weight.
