Korando Sports brings a new level of refinement to the market place, blending the suspension, engine and cabin finesse of a passenger car, the silhouette, space and seating for five that’s typical of a double cab, and the rugged workmanlike ability of a commercial pick-up.
This new Korando Sports will appeal to those who need a working vehicle, the practicality of 4 wheel drive, the towing capability to haul up to 2.3 tonnes yet also the appointments of a family car. Whether towing a work trailer or horsebox, ferrying the crew to site or the children to school, Korando Sports will meet a range of different demands.
“As you would expect from SsangYong, the new Korando Sports is both keenly priced and comprehensively equipped,” said Paul Williams, CEO of SsangYong Motor UK. “From just £18,295 (incl VAT) you not only get a lot of vehicle for the money, but also a 5 year limitless mileage warranty. SsangYong is the only manufacturer to have that much confidence in its pick-up, which will give customers complete peace of mind.
“SsangYong has a growing reputation for building extremely competent off-road vehicles, and the new Korando Sports builds on this pedigree. It’s an honest, reliable and highly capable vehicle, and pound for pound will outclass many more expensive rivals.”
