SsangYong is adding a new 4x4 light commercial model to its Korando range - the Korando CSX, priced from £15,995 on the road ex VAT and a 5 year limitless mileage warranty.
The completely flat load area is accessed via a high lifting tailgate or two side doors, and packs 1,312 cubic litre load volume. There’s a load deck length of 152.5 cm, and 96.5 cm between the wheel arches. The car also carries a very practical 433 kg payload, and willingly 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@4,000rpm, this advanced 2.0 litre four cylinder turbo diesel engine produces 360Nm of torque with CO2 emissions reduced to 157g/km.
New CSX features include the Torque on Demand 4x4 system and is equipped with ESP with Hill Start Assist, and mud & snow tyres as standard.
“The new Korando CSX is the third light commercial vehicle (LCV) to join the SsangYong line-up, and offers a highly practical and affordable vehicle for those with a specific business need,” said Paul Williams, ceo of SsangYong Motor UK. “Highly competitively priced, extremely well equipped and backed by a 5 year limitless mileage warranty, SsangYong is the only manufacturer to have that much confidence in its commercial vehicles to give its customers this level of reassurance.
“SsangYong has a growing reputation for building extremely competent off-road vehicles, and the new Korando CSX builds on this pedigree. It’s an honest, reliable and highly capable LCV, and pound for pound will outclass many more expensive rivals.”
