Ssangyong will try to offer more appeal to its European Korando by introducing a new special edition called Red. The new 2016 Ssangyong Korando Red is based on the ELX 2.2 version, but adds a stunning full red leather interior, a 6-way power adjustable and ventilated driver’s seat, powered sunroof and HID (High Intensity Discharge) headlights, with a choice of either a metallic space black or metallic techno grey exterior. The car also includes an Aisin 6-speed automatic gearbox.

The Korando ELX features on demand four wheel drive, heated front and rear seats, an infotainment system with 7 inch touchscreen with a TomTom navigation system, a rear view camera, and 18 inch diamond cut alloy wheels.

The Korando ELX Red is powered by SsangYong’s newly developed e-XDi220 2.2 litre diesel engine. Maximum power is increased to 178 hp and torque to 400 Nm, up by 19.4% and 11% respectively, and maximum torque is delivered from a low of 1,400 rpm and maintained through a wide range up to 2,800 rpm.

Korando Red is priced at £23,495 on the road.
