My thoughts on all things motoring, press releases, reviews & techie stuff, from around the world.
Please note that the pictures of vehicles within this blog are used as examples of the specific press releases, on occasions, due to the lack of available official pictures, examples are re-produced.
ANY AND ALL PROFANITIES WILL BE REMOVED AND THE PERSON/S RESPONSIBLE WILL BE BANNED, NO EXCEPTIONS.
I will try my best to provide detailed info on various cars and what is like to live with them, I have already produced a few for Jaguar-car-forums, I will do my best to be unbiased, but it will be hard for some cars. I will re-produce press releases and copy from other motoring news.

Additional equipment includes 18” diamond cut alloy wheels, sat nav & sidesteps
Available in white, metallic black, blue and new Galaxy Green
Korando LE - £17,995, and with 6-speed Aisin automatic - £18,995
2.2 litre Euro 6 diesel engine
2 tonne towing capability
5 year limitless mileage warranty
The new 2.2 litre SsangYong Korando crossover is now available as a special LE model, and features a wealth of additional luxury equipment that includes 18” diamond cut alloy wheels, sat nav & sidesteps. It is finished in white, metallic black, blue and new Galaxy Green.
Powered by a new powertrain featuring a 2.2 litre diesel Euro 6 engine, the LE comes in two-wheel drive with either a 6-speed manual or Aisin 6-speed automatic transmission for smooth gear changing and an enhanced driving performance.
“This is a great-value addition to the Korando range,” says Paul Williams, CEO of SsangYong Motor UK, “and adds several thousand pounds’ worth of equipmenton top of the already comprehensive specification. Korando delivers unrivaled levels of equipment and value, and no other car in its class has such a strong towing capability, nor such a comprehensive warranty for complete peace of mind.”
The newly developed e-XDi220 diesel engine meets the demand for a more powerful performance and lower CO2 emissions. Maximum power of 178ps and maximum torque of 400Nm are delivered from a low of 1,400rpm and maintained through a wide range up to 2,800rpm for smooth, progressive driving from the start. CO2 emissions are reduced to 139g/km, while fuel economy is up to 53.3mpg (Combined cycle).
Designed by the Italian styling house Giugiaro, the Korando sports stylish clear glass direction indicators, a piano black radiator grille and distinctive 18’’ diamond cut alloy wheels and sidesteps on this new LE.
The LE also features a 7” high-resolution touch screen with audio streaming from smart devices and a link to the rear view camera, as well as a TomTom navigation system, including a USB memory slot, Aux port and HDMI port.
Other features include automatic air conditioning, heated front seats, privacy glass, rear spoiler with high mounted LED brake light and rear parking sensors.
5 year limitless mileage warranty
All models in the SsangYong range are covered by a best-in-class 5 year limitless mileage warranty. Designed to be totally transparent and give customers complete peace of mind, ‘limitless’ means just that: not a maximum mileage condition that some brands impose in their small print. All the major mechanical components are covered including wheel bearings, suspension joints and bushes, steering joints, shock absorbers and even the audio system. Wearable components such as clutch discs and brake friction materials which could have their life reduced by poor driving are covered for one year or 12,000 miles, and the battery and paintwork for three years.
