* FWD Diesel specs
The powertrain of new SsangYong is expected to remain the same. The new Korando will either have a 2.0 liter, inline 4 engine that brings you 148 horsepower along with 266 lbs ft or torque; or the 2.0 liter turbo diesel engine that produces 147 horsepower.
Both engines produce 266 lb ft torque. Entry-level models are front-wheel drive although there is an option for a 4-wheel drive. The 4-wheel is the front-wheel drive in a normal road driving and sends torque only when required.
The Korando has a revised grille with an added upper chrome strip. The front bumper has been restyled with round fog lights.
Larger, squarer headlights are used that provide a new lighting cluster that include LED day-time running lights. The car's tail-lights have likewise been modified.
Inside, the cabin of the compact 5-seater has been refreshed as compared to the previous model. It comes with a new dashboard, angular air-vents, with an extended center console highlighted by a brand new touch-screen.
Adding to its character, chrome and glass black trim accents have been used.
