Korando CSX launched

Time 8:43 am, November 20, 2012

KOREAN manufacturer Ssangyong has increased its commercial offerings – introducing a business-centred version of its Korando SUV.

Fitted with the Korando’s 2.0-litre diesel engine, the CSX retains the passenger version’s capable two-tonne towing limit, and targets those who need a ‘go anywhere vehicle’ that combines four-wheel-drive with a flat load area.

Aside from the 1,312 cubic litre load area, the CSX is much the same as the standard Korando SX – fitted with alloy wheels, rear parking censors, Bluetooth compatible stereo and more.

With the same Guigiaro-designed body, too, Ssangyong are boasting that it’s one of the best looking commercial vehicles on sale too – something we find hard to disagree with.

‘The new Korando CSX is the third light commercial vehicle (LCV) to join the SsangYong line-up, and offers a highly practical and affordable vehicle for those with a specific business need,’ said CEO of SsangYong Motor UK, Paul Williams.

‘SsangYong has a growing reputation for building extremely competent off-road vehicles, and the new Korando CSX builds on this pedigree. It’s an honest, reliable and highly capable LCV, and pound for pound will outclass many more expensive rivals.’

The CSX starts from £15,995 on the road excluding VAT, and joins the Korando Sports pick-up and Rexton CS as the firm’s most compact commercial offering.
