SsangYong Korando C

SsangYong Motor Company, part of the Mahindra Group has launched the 2014 Korando C in South Korea. The 5-seater SUV was first launched in 2011 in the local market and now it has been revamped with a significant facelift. The interiors and exteriors have been tweaked by the manufacturer for a fresh appearance. SsangYong likes to call the new Korando C as an ULV (Urban Leisure Vehicle). The Korean automaker is promoting the Korando C as an SUV for urban driving as well as outdoor adventure.

The SsangYong Korando is a smart looking urban SUV which now features new projector headlamps with LED DRLs, revised front grille and sporty looking air intakes integrated in the bumper. On the side, it gets treated with masculine creases and a shoulder line that rises to the rear. The rear gets a sleek design treatment along with updated tail lamps. On the inside, the Korando C offers a choice of two different trims – all black and sporty red interiors to match different tastes of customers.

The SsangYong Korando C has a well-equipped cabin that features ventilated front seats, 7-inch touch screen multimedia system with 3D maps and navigation along with Harman Group sound system. The new Korando C gets the same engine options which are slightly tweaked for better fuel efficiency and NVH levels. It gets powered by a 2.0-litre diesel engine with two states of tune – 149 BHP and 175 BHP, mated to 6-speed manual or automatic transmission with an option of AWD. Mahindra is considering the launch of the SsangYong Korando in India, which would rival the Honda CR-V and Chevrolet Captiva in our country. It is expected to be priced around Rs. 20 lakhs.
