Order books open for facelifted SsangYong Korando

Published 09 December 2013

The facelifted SsangYong Korando is available to order, with first deliveries expected early in the New Year. The updated car gets a new interior layout, a restyled exterior and improvements to refinement. Prices for the facelifted model start at £14,995 for the two-wheel drive manual in SE trim, rising to £21,496 for the all-wheel drive ELX4 automatic.

All models are powered by the same 2.0-litre diesel engine, which is offered in two states of tune – either 149PS or 175PS depending on which trim level you choose. The engine offers a decent peak torque output of 360Nm and consequently the car has been commended by The Caravan Club for its towing ability – it has a 2.0-tonne braked towing rating.

Externally the front of the car gets a comprehensive makeover, with new headlights and a new grille. The cabin has been reworked with more upmarket materials, including wood inlays and soft-touch plastics. Thanks to improved soundproofing and revised engine mounts the updated Korando is quieter and more refined than before.
