Korando is specially designed to meet the needs of the European market. The crossover from Ssang Yong features 2WD and 4WD systems, 2.0 liter diesel engine, which blends efficient fuel economy and high performance. Korando also can be ordered with both - manual and automatic transmissions. Finally, it offers class-leading towing capacity of two tonnes.

Furthermore, Korando offers extreme safety featuring ESP, HBA, HSA, ARP, ESS, EPS and much more.

Ssang Yong Korando is powered by 2.0 litre e-XDi200 diesel engine with CDPF delivering 175PS at 4000RPM and 360Nm between 2000 and 3000RPM. The fuel consumption is very low for a crossover – it needs just 6.4 liter per 100km at combined cycle with manual transmission and 7.5 liter per 100km with automatic gearbox (AWD system). With 2WD the numbers are even lower 6.0 and 7.3 liter for 100km.
