SsangYong Unveils the Remodeled 2014 Korando SUV
|   Monday, October 07, 2013
SsanngYong has just unveiled its latest Korando cross over, to be sold across global markets. This is the first major modification on this car since it was launched back in 2010. The Korando is important as this is the first time SSangYong has used a monocoque chassis on a vehicle. Interior revisions are included in this package while refinement is at a whole new level.

Facelifts have been carried out on its exterior as well as interior while range topping additions have been added as options to make it a hot seller in the UK.
SsankYong is well aware of the needs of its home market as well as its neighbors. Hence, this vehicle has been designed keeping these aspects in mind. SsangYong has kept an entry level price tag of £14,995 for its base trim although high end packages will set you back by another two thousand pounds.

This vehicle is a slightly improved version of its predecessor in terms of drivability although test drives are yet to be conducted. SsangYong claims that they have installed a variety of safety and drive enhancing features to this ride. Ergonomically, this vehicle needs detailing as its interior is filled with cheap plastic bits. This is a good thing for all price sensitive markets, although it is a bane for refined markets.

Even though this vehicle is ergonomically perfect, its interior could use a facelift soon. Projector type head lamps and LED Daytime Running Lights have been added to the car to enhance its external appeal. Apart from this, its external is quite bland. Front grilles have been given a new look and feel even though detailing could use a little more help.

SsangYong claims that this variant of the Korando is an environment friendly design and promises high level of comfort and ride ability. However, without an on road test having been done, it is impossible to comment on this scenario. A large wood grain strip on its dash board makes this vehicle ugly and cheap although there are no solutions to it considering the price tag.

The Korando however is a spacious vehicle with large racks and storage bins. Interior space is high followed by a large boot space. These give the car sufficient head and leg room SsangYong is looking at cost effective SUVs for major economic markets, hence their vehicles have been designed accordingly. The Korando is powered by a 2.0 liter turbo charged engine displacing 147 BHP.

This is one of the best engines in class as it has decent power displacement along with fuel efficiency. 266 ft lb of torque is achieved at its peak point while its rev ranger is based on a wider class. SsangYong's Korando is a respectable vehicle in class and has a variety of electronic options present in most top end vehicles of today. Advanced Traction Control, Driveline control, lane change warnings etc have been added to this vehicle while safety measures include an advanced roll cage and Electronic Stability Control.
