SsangYong reveals more details for the 2017 Korando Crossover
The new 2.2-liter Korando crossover will proudly show some value raise with new features as fresh 18-inch diamond cut alloys, sat nav & sidesteps. There are also some new exterior colors: White, Metallic Black and Galaxy Green.
Enthusiasts know that this one is geared with diesel Euro6-compliant power unit and offers two-wheel drive with either a six-speed manual or Aisin 6-speed automatic gearbox. Sweet. Furthermore, there is a newly-developed e-XDi220 diesel engine that meets the requirements of many SsangYong fans out there and offers 178hp (132kW) and 400Nm of torque. And provided that it offers some reduced CO2 emissions, compared to older models, we tend to believe that enthusiasts will be satisfied. Or maybe no?
And now the special part. The exterior is reshaped by the Italian styling house Giugiaro and features clear lines, glass direction indicators, piano black grille and noticeable 18-inch diamond cut alloys. In terms of interior, there is a 7-inch high-resolution touch screen with audio streaming and link to the rear camera. Also present is a TomTom navigation system, USB memory slot, Aux port and HDMI port.
Frankly, I do not like the ambience in the cabin. It might be comfortable and functional, but I can't accept it: maybe because of the big wooden thing before the front passenger seat, or because SsangYong tried to imitate the clean and beautiful design of super-premium vehicles. However, I'd like to know your opinion, written in the comment section below.
