Korando makeover

Korando makeoverDespite being a relative newcomer to the UK market, the SsangYong Korando is about to get a makeover for 2014. The front gets completely new treatment, which includes a black radiator grille, more contemporary headlights and wider, lower level air intakes. The rear gets revised light clusters and there are new 16 and 17in alloy wheels, together with three new exterior colours of Sunrise red, Cosmic blue and Carbonic grey. The most significant changes have come in the interior with a completely redesigned dashboard with soft-touch materials and natural matt wood grain. The new Korando has much improved NVH (noise, vibration and harshness) levels, thanks to changes in the engine mountings, which has much reduced engine noise, plus some new rubber bushes fitted to the car’s sub frame. All Korando models come with a full five year unlimited warranty, and the new 4WD models in the range start at a very competitive £16,495, rising to £21,495 for the top of the range ELX4 Auto. The new Rexton W is now available in right hand drive (we tested the left hand drive version for our recent 4×4 Of The Year, Winter 2013 issue) with prices starting from £21,995.
