The fourth largest South Korean based automaker SsangYong has recently revealed the 2012 Korando, which is coming with some interesting styling tweaks.
After a limited edition of the SsangYong Korando has been launched in the United Kingdom earlier this year, the Asian crossover is once again placed into the spotlights, this time with the car manufacturer revealing the 2012 version of the model. According to the company, the 2012 SsangYong Korando is adding a new entry-level turbo diesel engine, with a 2.0 liter displacement, which is developing a total output of 147 horsepower, being able to emit just 147 g/km of CO2 in the front-wheel drive and 157 g/km of CO2 for the all-wheel drive version.
Besides the 2.0 liter turbo diesel engine, the 2.0 liter gasoline unit has also been updated and the powerplant is emitting 175 g/km of CO2 in the front-wheel drive version with a manual transmission and 192 g/km of CO2 in the all-wheel drive version with the same gearbox. SsangYong didn’t say anything more about this engine yet and even if the “new” Korando has been revealed, extra details on it, like performance, price or trims, will be announced close to its launch this summer in Europe.
