2019 SsangYong Korando

SsangYong’s efforts to re-establish itself in Australia will take a major step forward when its all-new Korando crossover set to arrive in Australia as early as October this year.

Based on the Korean brand’s SIV-2 concept shown at the Geneva Motor Show in 2016, the fourth-generation Korando will be officially unveiled at this year’s Geneva event, which begins this week

Measuring 4410mm long and 1830mm wide on a 2650mm wheelbase, the sub-compact Korando bridges the gap between the compact Tivoli and mid-sized Tivoli XLV.

According to SsangYong, those numbers give it one of the roomiest cabins in its class, that includes the Nissan QashqaiMitsubishi ASX and Subaru XV, along with one of the most advanced infotainment system displayed via a 9.0-inch touchscreen, and 10.25-inch digital gauge cluster with satellite navigation displayed on both screens similar to the Volkswagen Group’s Virtual Cockpit display.

The 2019 Korando’s exterior closely matches the SIV-2 concept, and looks bolder and more premium than its bland predecessor.

It will be powered by a choice of 1.5-litre turbocharged petrol and 1.6-litre turbodiesel engines with the latest Euro 6d efficiency ratings, “with an EV (electric) version to follow” at some point in the next year or so, according to the company.
