UK: 2016 SsangYong Korando revealed with new 2.2L diesel engine

October 5, 2015

The 2016 SsangYong Korando has been officially revealed with a new engine and more features for the UK. The new model is offered in three trims – SE, EX and ELX, and priced from £15,995.

The new Korando has been designed by Giugiaro and gets clear glass direction indicators, piano black radiator grille with chrome detailing on the ELX trim level, and new design 16- and 17-inch alloy wheels which change to 18-inch diamond cut alloys on the ELX trim level.

The biggest development for MY2016 however, is the introduction of a bigger, Euro 6-compliant 2.2-liter e-XDi220 four-cylinder turbo-diesel engine which is claimed to be more powerful and environment friendly than the previous unit.  This engine produces 178 PS (176 hp) and 400 Nm of torque, which is said to be an improvement of 19.4% and 11% respectively over the outgoing 2.0-litre engine. The new engine also has a reduced carbon footprint which has been brought down to 139g/km from the earlier 147 g/km. Combined fuel economy has also been increased from 16.67 km/l to 18.87 km/l.

The new 2.2-liter engine is Euro 6-compliant and more powerful and fuel efficient as well.

The engine is available with a 6-speed manual gearbox for both two- and four-wheel drive, while the Aisin 6-speed automatic gearbox is only offered with the all-wheel drive model.

The 2016 Korando gets lots of features to increase its appeal. The base SE trim level gets RDS audio system with Bluetooth and iPod/iPhone connectivity. The mid-level EX trim level features a 7-inch high-resolution touchscreen that supports audio streaming from smart devices and also gets feed from the reversing camera.  The cream-of-the-crop ELX trim level gains TomTom navigation system along with a USB memory slot, Aux port and HDMI port.
