Mahindra SsangYong Korando SUV Wallpapers
The success of the Rexton SUV seems to have prompted Mahindra and Mahindra to consider launching yet another SUV from South Korean Company SsangYong. It has been reportedly analyzing the market to find a potential launching period for the Korando SUV. This may further Mahindra’s hold in the Utility vehicle maker section.
The company had unveiled the Korando with the Rexton during the 2012 Indian Auto Expo but hasn't found the right time to release it into the market.
The SUV will pack a 2 liter turbo-diesel engine and will produce a peak power output of 173 bhp at 4000 rpm and a peak torque of 360 Nm at 1000-2000 rpm. It's a front wheel drive car with the engine placed right above the drive wheels providing improved traction in unfavorable climatic conditions.
It has a six speed automatic transmission and also has an optional smart all-wheel-drive which will make it run smoothly. Apart from that there will also be a manual transmission variant for the Indian Market. Its lighter than the Rexton and has a rugged look with high beltline, semicircular grilles and a black mesh covering it.
The bonnet is bulky and looks great. The front is more bulged out than the Rexton and it has body color mirrors with turn indicators, diamond shaped fog lamps and meshed aim dam suits giving it a dashing look.
There are rumors that we might get to see the Korando by April this year. The exshowroom price would be around 18.5 lakhs.
