SsangYong has released full details and pricing for the 2014 Korando Facelift. The model has recently won The Caravan Club Towcar of the Year Award 2014 for vehicles under £16,000. It received full inside and out makeover as well as enhanced driving refinement.

The exterior features black mesh radiator grille, more contemporary headlights and a wider, low level air intake are the principal enhancements. The new headlight units have projection lamps and LED DRLs for increased visibility and safety, surrounded by a stylish black and aluminium bezel.  Further illumination is provided on the ELX4 model with neat round fog lamps set discreetly within the lower bumper.

There are new designs for both the 16" and 17" wheels, and three new exterior colours - Sunrise red, Cosmic blue and Carbonic grey as well as Space black, Grand white and Silent silver.

The interior now combines an attractive and comfortable ambiance for the driver and passengers alike.  There is a completely redesigned dashboard featuring soft-touch materials for a greater sense of luxury, complemented by natural matt wood grain insets, and abundant storage space that includes enlarged cup holders, a mobile phone tray and flip-down sunglasses tray.

In conjunction with the standard Electronic Stability Program (ESP) with emergency brake assist and four-channel Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), the four-wheel drive system provides the best possible grip and control whatever the conditions.  Hill Start Assist (HSA) and Active Roll-over Protection (ARP) also feature.

2014 SsangYong Korando is now available to order with first deliveries at the beginning of the next year.
