SsangYong Korando SX launched

SsangYong has expanded the Korando range with the SX, which has been styled by Italian car designer Giorgetto Giugiaro of Ital Design.

The Korando SX is powered by a new low CO2 version of the Korando power unit. Developing 149ps at 4,000rpm, this 2.0 litre four cylinder turbo diesel engine produces 360Nm of torque with CO2 emissions reduced to 157g/km, while providing a full two tonne towing capability.

The SX features the Torque on Demand 4x4 system fitted to EX models, and like all Korandos is equipped with ESP with Hill Start Assist. The S shares its specification to the Korando S but in two wheel drive form brings reduced CO2 emissions of 147g/km.

It comes equipped with a number of luxury touches including roof rails, tinted glass and rear parking sensors, while inside there is a leather covered steering wheel and gear shift, cruise control and a Kenwood MP3 CD & RDS radio with iPod & Bluetooth, remote audio controls and six speakers.

The Korando SX features a Torque on Demand four wheel drive system which constantly monitors the level of grip available and distributes power to the wheels that need it most. Under normal driving conditions the engine's torque is directed to the front wheels so the car runs with the efficiency of a family hatchback. However, if the front tyres begin to lose traction, power is automatically fed to the rear wheels to ensure safe, stable and dependable progress is maintained with grip from all four wheels. An all wheel drive lock mode is also provided to ensure a 50/50 spread of torque between the front and rear wheels at speeds up to 25mph, essential for when low speed traction and control is needed such as when driving up a slippery track or off a sodden field when towing a caravan or horsebox.

The SsangYong Korando SX is covered by the standard 5 year unlimited mileage warranty available on all SsangYong cars and priced from £18,795 on the road.
