SsangYong is adding new low priced 4×4 light commercial Korando CSX with a price from just £15,995 on the road ex VAT and a 5 year limitless mileage warranty. it is also a sound commercial business decision. Arguably one of the best looking light commercials thanks to Italian car designer Giorgetto Giugiaro of Ital Design who penned its lines, this latest addition to the Korando range is also a highly practical workhorse. The completely flat load area is accessed via a high lifting tailgate or two side doors, and packs a useful 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.
And for when the weather turns nasty and the going gets tough, the new CSX features an impressive Torque on Demand 4×4 system and is equipped with ESP with Hill Start Assist, and mud & snow tyres as standard.
The low price doesn’t mean basic though, and drivers will enjoy the luxury touches of roof rails, tinted glass and rear parking sensors, while inside there is a leather covered steering wheel and gear shift, cruise control and a Kenwood MP3 CD & RDS radio with iPod & Bluetooth connectivity, remote audio controls and six speakers.
