2017 SsangYong Korando facelift: prices and specs revealed

SsangYong’s Nissan Qashqai gets 2017 refresh and £17,000 price tag

SsangYong has revealed prices and specs for the newly facilitated Korando – the latest version of the firm’s value alternative to the Nissan Qashqai.

On sale now, buyers will get a choice of two trim levels to choose from  - base SE cars and better equipped and more expensive ELX models. The two-wheel-drive SE level Korando is priced from £17,000, with the same car fitted with a four-wheel-drive system coming in at £18,500. ELX cars come with four-wheel-drive as standard, and kick off from £22,000. An automatic gearbox can be had for an extra £1,500.

In terms of equipment, SE cars come with Bluetooth connectivity, air-conditioning, electric and heated door mirrors plus roof rails and tinted rear windows. Stepping up to the ELX car unlocks goodies such as a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with built in sat nav and a rear-view camera, front and rear parking sensors, plus heated leather seats alongside a heated steering wheel.  

The changes to the 2017 Korando are best described as subtle, with a slightly altered exterior look thanks to a more prominent ‘shoulder-wing’ grille design and reprofiled headlamps. The new lenses feature LED daytime running lights, too. Fresh diamond-cut 18-inch alloy wheels complete the look.

Inside, there’s a new steering wheel designed to be easier to use, while a new front-end safety camera complements the rear-view camera to boost safety and convenience. The infotainment and TomTom navigation system is unchanged, however.

Also identical is the 176bhp 2.2-litre turbo diesel engine, introduced back in 2015. Some markets also get the choice of a 2.0-litre petrol engine, while both are available with either a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic gearbox. There are no changes to the suspension.
