2011 SsangYong Korando

Korean automaker SsangYong is trying to grow up like other fellow car makers in that country Kia and Hyundai and become a globally successful brand.

So for the new Korando Crossover which is destined for the European market, Giugiaro design the car so it would look proper!

And indeed it does look good for its class where it will be rivaling cars like Ford Kuga, Hyundai ix35, Kia Sportage, Nissan Qashqai and Volkswagen Tiguan. The interior on the other hand is still very dull and does not seem to be made of high quality materials in the same level as the other cars of this segment, either.

Since the new Korando is a car for the European market, it is equipped with a very efficient Euro5 2.0 litre diesel engine which manages 47 MPG with CO2 emissions of just 157 g.km, but is a bit down on power with just 175 PS. You have the choice of 6-speed manual and automatic, and two trim levels, and two or four-wheel-drive.
