SsangYong has revealed the all-new 2020 Korando, dropping its egg-shaped design in favor of a stylistic, angular theme that’s inspired from the brand’s latest Rexton large body-on-frame SUV.
From the outside, the all-new Korando has been designed to emphasize the SUV’s robust character, through a new grille and headlight treatment. The contemporary exterior design features LED lighting elements, as well as large alloy wheels that give the Korando an extremely handsome look.
SsangYong says that the Korando’s biggest improvement is the interior and we believe them. The new interior design language features a host of premium soft-touch materials, as well as numerous LED ambient lighting elements which are highly configurable. There’s also a 10.25-inch fully digital instrument cluster, as well as a 9-inch touch screen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Under the hood of the all-new Korando is a choice of a new 1.5-liter inline-4 turbocharged petrol engine, and a 1.6-liter inline-4 turbodiesel engine. No powertrain figures or transmission choice have been announced as of this article’s publishing date. An electric powertrain will be released a year from now.
As expected, the all-new Korando will feature a host of semi-autonomous driver assist systems, including automatic emergency braking, blind spot warning, adaptive cruise control, just to name a few.
The SsangYong Korando will be fully revealed and detailed at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show this March 5, 2019, so stay tuned to Go Flat Out to know more about SsangYong’s latest offering.
