2011 SsangYong Korando - A Korean Approach to a Crossover

It would probably be safe to claim that many of our readers aren't familiar with SsangYong. The SsangYong brand is a South Korean brand, and today we are introducing a crossover model from the brand's lineup, the Korando. Riding on a new platform, new design and new engine, the SsangYong Korando brings an entirely fresh approach to the crossover market.

You also might be surprised to learn that the Korando is also listed in the Korean Guinness Book of World Records as the country's longest surviving automotive brand. This all-new crossover is coming with a new powertrain with the ability to produce an output of 172-horsepower from a 2.0-liter diesel engine. Inside, the Korando offers quality cabin comfort and interior ergonomics. As for exterior styling, this was taken up by respected European designer Giorgetto Giugiaro, who was instrumental from the beginning in producing a proportionally shaped crossover.

Most of us in the U.S. will probably never see one on U.S. roads as the SsongYong Korando is mainly found in Korean and Europe.
