With an increased payload of 1,050kg, the Korando Sports one tonne pick-up is now the most practical, comprehensively equipped and affordable pick-up in the market.
The new Korando Sports has been fitted with uprated and progressive rear coil springs within the existing multi-link rear suspension set up – the only pick-up in the market to offer this system – which means that it continues to offer its famed relaxed and comfortable car-like ride, while also carrying over a tonne weight on its load deck.
Critically for business users this also means that the car can be purchased exempt of VAT.
“This is great news for the one-man-band business, SME and fleet operator,” says Paul Williams, CEO of SsangYong Motor UK. “The keenly priced and comprehensively equipped Korando Sports not only gives you a lot of vehicle for the money – from £14,995 (ex VAT), but also the reassurance of a 5 year limitless mileage warranty. SsangYong is the only manufacturer to have that much confidence in its LCVs, and gives customers complete peace of mind.
“Now with a full 1-tonne payload, this really is the best value pick-up you can buy!”
The Korando Sports brings a new level of refinement to the pick-up market, blending the suspension, engine and cabin finesse of a passenger car, with the silhouette, space and seating for five that’s typical of a double cab, and the rugged workmanlike ability of a commercial pick-up.
This new car will appeal to those who need a work vehicle, the practicality of 4 wheel drive, the towing capability to haul up to 2.7 tonnes yet also the appointments of a family car. Whether towing a work trailer or horsebox, ferrying the crew to site or the children to school, Korando Sports will meet a range of different demands.Manufacturer Profile Latest Car News
