SSANGYONG’S KORANDO GETS A LOT MEANER
SsangYong launched a new Korando, with only a petrol engine but a lot of spec, including 17-inch wheels and Bluetooth hands-free telephony. The 2,0-litre engine is credited with 110 kW of maximum power at 6 000 rpm, linked to a torque peak of 197 Nm at 4 000 rpm. The gearbox is a six-speed manual powering the front wheels. The retail price is R324 995, which includes a five-year or 150 000 km warranty, AA roadside support for the same period, and a five-year/100 000 km service plan.
