SsangYong Korando Commercial (2012–)
SsangYong launches Korando CSX Commercial
SsangYong added a new low priced 4x4 light commercial model to its Korando range - the Korando CSX. It's ideal as a small delivery van, go-anywhere vehicle for service engineers or simply a light commercial to ensure you reach your destination whatever the weather or terrain.
It's priced at just £15,995 on the road ex VAT and comes with a five year limitless mileage warranty. The completely flat load area is accessed via a high lifting tailgate or two side doors, and packs a useful 1312 cubic litre load volume. There’s a load deck length of 152.5cm, and 96.5cm between the wheel arches. The car also carries a very practical 433kg payload, and pulls a 2 tonne trailer.
Under the bonnet, the Korando CSX is powered by a new lower CO2 version of the Korando power unit. Developing 149PS at 4000rpm, the 2.0 litre four cylinder turbo diesel engine produces 360Nm of torque with CO2 reduced to 157g/km. And for when the weather turns nasty and the going gets tough, the new CSX features an impressive Torque on Demand 4x4 system and is equipped with ESP with Hill Start Assist, and mud & snow tyres as standard.
The low price doesn’t mean basic though, and drivers will enjoy the luxury touches of roof rails, tinted glass and rear parking sensors, while inside there is a leather covered steering wheel and gear shift, cruise control and an optional Kenwood MP3 CD & RDS radio with iPod & Bluetooth connectivity, remote audio controls and six speakers.
SsangYong introduces facelifted Korando
Alongside the styling changes a two-wheel drive CS version is now available.
Externally, the front receives an all-new treatment that includes a slimmed down, black mesh radiator grille, contemporary projection headlights and LED daytime running lights, while the interior has also been given a significant re-design that includes a completely new dashboard.
There is a choice of two wheel drive or 4x4, with prices from just £12,995 (ex VAT) for the two wheel drive CS and £14,295 (ex VAT) for the four wheel drive CSX.
