New platform, new design, new engine – new SsangYong Korando brings an fresh approach to the crossover

Introducing a number of significant for SsangYong, the SsangYong Korando is to take a bold step one of the most buoyant sectors of the car market. Merging the low running and dynamic abilities of a conventional hatchback with the visual adventurous spirit and rough-road of an SUV, the SsangYong Korando is at the heart of the crossover market.

With one of the famous names in automotive behind it, the new SsangYong Korando on a modern, stylish SUV shape the rugged appeal that at the heart of today’s SsangYong Company.

Looking outside of Europe, the Korando brand is already one of the in the SUV market. Indeed, SsangYong is listed in the Korean Guinness of World Records as the country’s surviving automotive brand. its roots stretching as far back as the SsangYong Korando started a new in Korean car making as the first-ever four-wheel-drive model to come the country in 1983.

The next evolution in 1996 was the adoption of diesel technology when the generation model was introduced.

after a five year from the world’s car market, Korando is back in an all-new to claim its place among the new C-segment SUV crossover models.

today’s economic ethos of less without compromising on the SsangYong Korando is perfectly to meet the needs of downsizing The compact C-segment sized SUV now accounts for more than of the total SUV market in Europe, and proportion is expected to grow in the months and years.

The new powertrain – efficiency and performance

An all-new model deserves an powertrain – and the SsangYong Korando’s new engine is at the very heart of the appeal.

Leading the way efficiency

Low emissions, high e-XDi200

The diesel engines used to SsangYong models have been one of the marque’s key strengths. the traditional virtues of high and outstanding durability with economy and refinement, the new e-XDi200 engine is the perfect powerplant for the Korando.

The 2.0-litre e-XDi200 provides a maximum power of 175PS and peak torque of representing a 20 per cent improvement its predecessor. Optimum torque is across a low yet broad rev range of leading to effortless acceleration low engine speeds thanks to E-VGT (Electric Variable Turbocharger).

Not only is it fully with Euro5 emissions but the e-XDi200 engine is also to fulfil the requirements of the future rules. This has been with the help of a range of advancements including third 1,800 bar common rail injection, E-EGR (Electric Gas Recirculation), swirl control and CDPF (Catalysed Diesel Filter). The swirl level has made flexible for different ratios to achieve the cleanest diesel combustion.

The result is frugal combined cycle economy of 6.0 l/100km (47mpg) and CO2 of only 157g/km. Such efficiency can only be achieved the implementation of a range of measures the SsangYong Korando’s design.

The kerb weight is only (manual version) thanks to weight saving measures the use of an oil separator integrated plastic head cover. Lowering has also played its part, low tension piston rings, honing and low viscosity oil all helping to energy losses.

Advanced control devices have been developed including a knock sensor and a system to intake and fuel injection to driving conditions. A rapid elevation warm-up system is in place to improve the engine’s in cold start and warming-up

Efficiency and performance are only of a modern diesel engine’s – refinement is equally important. why the e-XDi200 engine minimises NVH Vibration and Harshness) with technology and an advanced balancing to drastically reduce booming in the mid to high speed range.

The SsangYong Korando’s AWD is an system. By monitoring the grip the technology can determine the driving and traction available before power to the wheels that it most.

Under normal conditions 100 per cent of the engine’s is driving the front wheels so the SsangYong Korando can run with the of a family hatchback. However, as as the front tyres begin to traction, power is fed to the rear to ensure safe, stable and progress is resumed. The technology comes into play pulling away on a steep allowing the SsangYong Korando to off from a standstill smoothly and every time.

What’s the AWD even has a special in-built function. If a driver fits a type of tyre or has extreme in wear between front and tyres, the driving power to the rear is reduced to prevent any to the transmission.

Optimal Ride

To compliment SsangYong’s first construction, compact sub-frames are at the front and rear. This not provides ride and handling much closer to a conventional car rather than an off-roader, but it dramatically improves the cabin’s from bumps and ridges in the At the front, side load are used to minimise friction and in improve both noise and durability.

The SsangYong has a ground clearance of 180mm, angle of 22.8 degrees, angle of 28.2 degrees and angle of 18.5 degrees.

While some might charge extra for safety equipment, the SsangYong comes as standard with the complement of six airbags. Dual are fitted for the driver and front while side and curtain will deploy in the event of a crash. There is also a safety restraint system in to stop passengers from thrown out of the car in a rollover accident.

safety enhancement comes in the of the latest active head system. An electric signal is by the sensor in the event of a rear-end and instantly moves the front restraints forwards and upwards to any potential neck injuries.

there’s more to safety merely considering the worst-case-scenario speed impact – slow accidents also require development to minimise repair and insurance costs. A high steel crash box is installed at the front and the rear to reduce the caused by low-speed bumps. The enables easy repairs to be out to vehicles which have collision energy into crash boxes rather costly chassis and body
