India bound 2014 Ssangyong Korando launched in Korea

Mahindra’s Korean subsidiary Ssangyong has launched an updated version of the Korando C in Korea. The new Korando C is the styled by Italian designer Giorgetto Giugiaro and has been classified as an urban leisure vehicle (ULV) by the company. The SUV has got refreshed styling for its new generation and has been redesigned inside out.

The most prominent feature of the car’s facia is its matte black honeycomb grille lined with chrome cladded top lip. The Korando C also gets projector headlamps and DRLs with inner lenses that improve visibility. The rear now gets a C-shaped guide light embedded to the tail light cluster that distinguishes the Korando C from its predecessor.

The interior of the car has become more refined with the inclusion of wood trims on the dash along with ventilated driver seats. Optional red leather seats carry forward the sportiness to the inside of the car. Safety features like dual airbags and seatbelt with load limiters and pre-tensioners come as standard in the Korando C.

Power plant options for the SUV are limited to a 2.0-litre petrol and diesel mills of which we are expected to get only the oil burner. It produces 177PS power and 360Nm of torque. Transmission options include a six-speed manual or automatic, with the automatic variant getting the option to switch between Eco and Sport drive modes.

The Korando will most likely follow its elder sibling, the Rexton to the India. With a possible price bracket of Rs 15-18 lakh, the Korando C will lock horns with the Chevrolet Captiva, Renault Koleos and the Skoda Yeti. Under the Mahindra wing the SUV will possibly get better visibility in the market which may bring some activity to this otherwise lethargic segment in the Indian auto industry.
