SsangYong recently released the details of its refreshed 2014 Korando crossover.
Externally, the front-end of the Korando receives a black mesh radiator grille, revised headlights and a wider, low level air intake. The headlamps consist of projector units and DRLs and are surrounded by a stylish black and aluminium bezel. Further illumination is provided on the ELX4 model with neat round fog lamps set discreetly within the lower bumper. At the rear, the design changes are focused on enhanced style with detail improvements such as the rear light cluster, which now includes LED lights for improved visibility. There are new designs for both the 16-inch and 17-inch wheels, and three new exterior colours – Sunrise red, Cosmic blue and Carbonic grey as well as Space black, Grand white and Silent silver.
The interior of the car has also been given a significant re-design, and now comes with a completely redesigned dashboard featuring soft-touch materials, natural matt wood grain insets, enlarged cup holders, a mobile phone tray and flip-down sunglasses tray.
The new Korando is powered by a 175ps e-XDi200 diesel engine that has peak torque of 360Nm. Korando offers two transmissions: a 6-speed manual and a 6-speed automatic.
Korando is fitted with Macpherson struts to the front and multi-link suspension to the rear and new rubber bushes have been fitted to the car’s reinforced sub frames to further help to minimise intrusive vibration and noise from the road surface and engine.
