SSANGYONG TO SHOWCASE ALL-NEW KORANDO AT GENEVA
SsangYong Motor Company will unveil its all-new Korando at the 89th Geneva Motor Show in Switzerland next week.
The new SsangYong Korando SUV is the fourth-generation model to carry the name and follows on from the SIV-2 design concept first seen at the Geneva Motor Show in 2016.
The car sports a new-look throughout which has been designed to maximise the car’s robust character with a distinctive new grille and headlight treatment. This contemporary exterior design is complemented by a refined and premium quality interior, with enhanced driver assistance and safety systems along with state-of-the-art connectivity.
Inside, the spacious interior provides better head-room and rear seat space than its competitors, with a high-tech premium feel throughout. It is also extremely driver-focused with a range of features such as a 9” AVN and 10.25” full colour LCD cluster with dual navigation to provide all the information needed, along with a four-way adjustable driver’s seat with lumber support for comfort.
This all-new C segment SUV will be powered by new 1.5 litre turbo petrol and updated 1.6 litre diesel Euro 6d engines, with an EV to follow. Longer, wider and lower than the car it replaces, the new Korando measures 4,452mm long, 1,870mm wide and 1,620mm high, and with a wheelbase of 2,675mm, one of the longest in its class for increased comfort.
Further information will be available at the Geneva Motor Show on Press Day, Tuesday 5th March.
