2020 SsangYong Korando Lands In UK With £19,995 Base Price

The all-new SsangYong Korando has finally reached UK shores following its world debut in Korea in February and its European premiere at the Geneva Motor Show in March.

The C-segment SUV offers a total of seven variants in the UK, based on two engines, two gearboxes, and four trim levels (ELX, Ventura, Pioneer, and Ultimate).

The base SsangYong Korando ELX starts at £19,995 (approximately $24,160) and comes equipped with 17-inch alloys with all-weather tires, cruise control, DAB/RDS/Bluetooth radio, automatic lights and wipers, woven cloth upholstery, six airbags, and more. The ELX is available in 2WD only with the 163 PS (161 hp) 1.5 GDI turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine and six-speed manual transmission.

The Korando Ventura offers the same engine and transmission but adds amenities such as faux leather with fabric seat upholstery, heated front seats, 18-inch diamond cut alloy wheels with standard tires, front and rear parking sensors, electronic parking brake, 10.25-inch full LCD cluster, 8-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, and more. The Ventura trim level starts at £22,995 ($27,760).

Customers who want a 4WD Korando have to step up to the Pioneer trim level, which comes equipped with a 136 PS (134 hp) 1.6-liter diesel engine working alongside a six-speed automatic transmission. The 4WD system is optional and adds £2,000 to the trim level’s £26,495 ($32,000) starting price. Besides the powertrain, different features compared to the Korando Pioneer include the 17-inch alloys with all-weather tires, heated steering wheel, full-sized spare wheel, 3.5-inch LCD cluster, and rear view camera, among other things.

Finally, the range-topping Korando Ultimate is available in three variants: a petrol 2WD model with either manual or automatic transmissions and a diesel 4WD model. Regardless of the powertrain, the Korando Ultimate brings goodies such as soft leather seats with driver’s lumbar support, dual-zone air conditioning, 9-inch touchscreen-based infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, smart keyless start, 10.25-inch fully-digital cluster, and mood lighting.

On the outside, the Korando Ultimate can be recognized thanks to the 19-inch alloys, rear privacy glass, LED multi-focus headlights, and power tailgate. Prices for the Korando Ultimate range from £26,495 ($32,000) for the 2WD petrol version with a manual gearbox to £31,995 ($38,650) for the 4WD diesel with an automatic transmission.

UK deliveries of the all-new SsangYong Korando start in December 2019.

    Looks decent.
    copied the Renault Kadjar seats, not a bad thing, wonder if they are as comfortable.
    Not a bad proposition, looks better than other SSSSSangyong’s.
    But you will need to definately to sound proofing in this one, cause they tend to have roudy cabins.

    Not bad, it manages to have its own identity without resorting to stupid design quirks.
