Updates added to the Korando C facelift include exterior changes, redefined interiors and optimized powertrain. Speaking about their new car, Lee Yoo-il, CEO, SsangYong Motors says, “The Korando C has been reborn as the New Korando C, with a new innovative style and greater appeal to drivers. I have no doubt that it will be an attractive choice for drivers looking for vehicles for both urban driving and outdoor leisure activities.”
2014 Korando C is marketed with brand slogan ‘Urban Adventure’, which is because of the fact that it is promoted as a SUV, which will not only give you off-roading fun but will also serve you well in city traffic. The catch phrase for the car is, ‘The city is also the great outdoors for the New Korando C.’
SsangYong has worked hard to achieve the level of improvement seen on the Korando C. At the front, you will notice a stronger and more muscular look. This has been achieved due to the innovative design changes applied to the facelift Korando. These includes projector headlights, body colored grille, chrome molding, LED position lights and aligning air intake grille with bumper. At the rear, you see a C-shaped guide light, which will make the car unique and recognizable from rear as well.
On the inside, you will find a mix of sporty and classy touch that gives the vehicle a subtle look. The non-glossy wood grain, smooth design, invisible airbags and soft dashboard give the Koranda C a premium feel, unmatched in the segment. Driver seat features seat cushion with backrest and forced ventilation (two fan speeds). With optional package, you can make the interior sporty with red leather seats.
