SsangYong Korando Sports

SsangYong Motor Company is the fourth largest South Korean automobile manufacturer. Its name means double dragons. And it’s got for sure the attitude, the power and the impressiveness of such a force.


For the Korando Sports that was released last autumn in UK, the SsangYong now presents an improved version, this time in its own yard, South Korea. The exterior look can now be fitted with a larger variety of colors and also alloy wheels. Due to clients’ advice the SsangYong Motors have replaced the old windshield wiper with a larger one for a better visibility on rainy weather. The updated 2014 Korando Sports is now equipped with heated steering wheel that presents selectable sensitivity options, automatic climate control, parking sensors and heated seats for front and rear too.


The interior appearance of the SsangYong Korando has also been modified by adding leather upholstery, decorative moldings and reduced size headrests to improve rear view from the driver’s position. New and joyful colors are also available. The vehicle is animated by the same 2.0-liter e-XDi active diesel engine that produces 153 hp (114 kW / 155 PS) and a delivers a maximum torque of 265 lb-ft (360 Nm). The engine can be mated with a 6-speed manual gearbox or a 6-speed automatic transmission. All the changes are dependent on the facilities level for that the client can opt in order to satisfy his own ambitions.
