SsangYong have added the ‘SX’ to the Korando crossover model line-up, which is now priced from £16,995 with a 5 year unlimited mileage warranty – the SX is £18,785.
Styled by the Italian car designer Giorgetto Giugiaro of Ital Design, the four-wheel drive Korando SX is powered by a low CO2 version of SsangYong’s 2.0 litre diesel engine.
The 2.0 litre four cylinder turbo diesel engine develops 149 PS and produces 360Nm of torque. This equates to 0-62 mph time of 9.9 seconds and a top speed of 116 mph. The official combined mpg figure is 45.6 mpg and CO2 emissions are rated at 157 g/km.
The Korando SX features a Torque on Demand four wheel drive system which constantly monitors the level of grip available and distributes power to the wheels that need it most, normally driving just the front wheels to aid fuel consumption.
Standard equipment includes roof rails, tinted glass and rear parking sensors, while inside there is a leather covered steering wheel and gear shift, cruise control and a Kenwood MP3 CD & RDS radio with iPod & Bluetooth, remote audio controls and six speakers
The Korando SX is now available to order at your local SsangYong Dealer, which now boasts 52 dealerships covering England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.Published 18 June 2012
