SSANGYONG has carried off a new title with an increased payload capacity.
With an payload of 1,050kg, the Korando Sports one tonne pick-up is now the most practical, comprehensively equipped and affordable pick-up in the market.
Korando Sports is powered by SsangYong’s latest e-XDi diesel engine. This 2 litre Euro 5 engine provides maximum power of 155PS
The new Korando Sports has been fitted with uprated and progressive rear coil springs within the existing multi-link rear suspension set up – the only pick-up in the market to offer this system – which means that it continues to offer its famed relaxed and comfortable car-like ride, while also carrying over a tonne weight on its load deck.
Critically for business users this also means that the car can be purchased exempt of VAT.
“This is great news for the one-man-band business, SME and fleet operator,” says Paul Williams, CEO of SsangYong Motor UK.
“The keenly priced and comprehensively equipped Korando Sports not only gives you a lot of vehicle for the money – from £14,995 ex VAT, but also the reassurance of a 5 year limitless mileage warranty.”
Korando Sports is powered by SsangYong’s latest e-XDi diesel engine. This 2 litre Euro 5 engine provides maximum power of 155PS and peak torque of 360Nm delivered between 1,500rpm and 2,800rpm.
There are two models to choose from. The SX is extremely well appointed and comes equipped with 16” alloy wheels, tinted glass, air conditioning, leather covered steering wheel, remote central locking, Kenwood MP3 CD & RDS radio with a USB & auxiliary port and Bluetooth connectivity as well as speed sensitive power assisted steering.
The EX has 18” alloy wheels, and features the luxury touch of leather upholstery with heated front seats, powered driver’s seat, heated, electrically adjustable and power folding door mirrors and rear parking sensors. 6 speed automatic transmission with cruise control is also available as an option.
