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," commented 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.", he added.

"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.". Mr. Williams finished.

There are two trim levels from launch.

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.

The EX 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.  A 6 speed automatic transmission with cruise control is also available as an option.
