SsangYong Korado Sports Pick-up Trucks-SUV Hybrid

SsangYong Korado Sports is now available for the British customers. The starting price was established at GBP18.295 and it can go up to GBP21.245. The model is actually a rather interesting SUV with a flat, pickup truck-like bed that offers a 2.04 sq. meter load area. The Euro pallet can fit inside with no problems. It also comes equipped with load deck and anchor points. For the ones that want more for their car, the specialists offer as an option a rigid hard top with a hinged rear window that actually closes behind the tailgate. Also, you should know that the hard top is color matched to the rest of the vehicle. According to the carmaker, the new SsangYong Korado Sports is a perfect acquisition for the ones that really need a working vehicle thanks to its 4-wheel drive, but it is also a family car.

The specialists offer it in two trim levels. The basic one is the SX which comes equipped with air conditioning, tinted glass, remote central locking and leather covered steering wheel, Bluetooth connectivity and Kenwood MP3 CD & RDS radio with a USB & auxiliary port. To transfer the power to the road, the engineers have offered 16-inch alloy wheels. The next trim level is EX. With it the customers will receive leather upholstery with heated front seats, heated, electrically adjustable and power folding door mirrors, rear parking sensors and powered seat for the driver. Under the hood, all models will have a Euro 5.2-liter turbo diesel capable of developing 153 horsepower and 360 Nm of torque. All the output will be sent to the wheels through a manual transmission offered as standard.

The EX can also be offered with a 6-speed automatic unit offered as optional. The new SsangYong Korado Sports will have a fuel consumption of 37.7 mpg UK on a combined cycle. This is all for now, folks, but stay tuned for more interesting information on the matter.
