SsangYong has announced it will introduce the new Korando (Actyon) Sports utility pick-up this autumn. The vehicle was first presented as the SUT-1 (sport utility) concept at international motor shows in 2011, and in production ready form at this year’s Geneva Motor show.

This new Korando Sports will appeal to those who need a working vehicle, the practicality of 4 wheel drive, the towing capability to haul up to 2.3 tonnes yet also the appointments of a family car. Practicality is at the core of the new pick-up’s appeal. A large, flat rear deck provides a 2.04m2 load area complete with load deck liner and anchor points.

The exterior design has been styled to reflect SsangYong’s modern and efficient new look. From the front, it communicates a dynamic yet sophisticated appearance, featuring a mesh grille, trapezoidal bumper and stylish black headlight bezels to provide a premium touch. In profile, the sharp belt line runs to the rear bumper emphasising a sleek, sporty stance, while from the rear the wide glass area affords excellent rearward visibility.
Inside the spacious cabin there’s a light and airy environment thanks to the large front, side and rear windows. With spacious accommodation for five adults – the rear passenger seats can even be reclined by up to 29 degrees – air conditioning and Bluetooth connectivity ensure comfort and convenience.

The new Korando Sports offers a very rigid structure to help protect occupants in the event of a collision. Accident avoidance and a sure footed performance off road are also enhanced by the electronic stability programme (ESP) – a rare feature on most pick-ups but standard on Korando Sports – active roll-over protection (ARP) and hill start assist (HSA).
The new SsangYong pickup is powered by the latest e-XDi active diesel engine. This new 2 litre engine provides maximum power of 155hp and peak torque of 360Nm delivered between 1,500rpm and 2,800rpm.
