The headlights and radiator grille have been extensively redesigned. Both elements now ow together in a harmonious and modern way. The LED daytime running lights / positioning lamps and projection headlamps add elegance while the black nish on the lower part of the bumper completes the assertive, modern look. The fog lamps contrast with the forceful front bumper. Side repeaters have been mounted on the outside mirrors, and a puddle lamp is attached to the bottom of each outside mirror to assist with vehicular entry and egress in the dark. You can choose the package that is right for you from Sport, Limited or SPR models.
The New Korando comes with two engine options, a powerful and e cient 2 litre diesel engine or a 2 litre petrol model. All comply with Europe’s Euro-5 emissions standards, and are remarkably quiet in operation, thanks to constant innovation and improvement.
The e-XDi200 diesel produces high torque at the low-end for better fuel e ciency and NVH performance. The cylinder block and heads are made of light, high-strength metal, while a single-belt system minimises slippage and vibration. The e-XGi200 petrol performs at its peak in the low to medium speed range. The crankshaft o set, open deck cylinder block, and low-friction technology enhance eco- friendliness. The Aisin automatic transmission provides prompt gear shifting and smooth driving.
A total of six airbags are now deployed in all models, including two front and two side airbags in the 1st row and a pair of curtain airbags that cover both the 1st and 2nd rows. The front airbag on the front passenger’s side can be deactivated, and its presence is now completely hidden behind an attractively covered panel.
All seats come equipped with head-rests, and ISO-FIX brackets for securing for a child’s seat in the 2nd row.
The interior appearance has been upgraded, too. The new fabric seat covers are more luxurious, wearing a new pattern and woven with a double stitch. In black the seat covers are both functional and fashionable, and the metal grain panelling further enhances the interior.
The New Korando has the exibility to support everyday transportation needs as well as weekend leisure trips. The 2nd row seats can be partially or fully folded at depending on the load to be carried. The cargo bay is the largest for this SUV segment and the optimised interior layout provides the most possible legroom as well as wide and comfortable seating in the rear.
