SsangYong has announced an overseas update to its Korando midsized SUV this week, adding an entry-level diesel engine and a new petrol option.

On the diesel front, the Korando's existing 129kW/360Nm 2.0 litre turbodiesel is joined by another 2.0 litre mill, this one producing 110kW. A torque figure was not revealed.

Carbon emissions for the new diesel are listed at 147g/km for the 2WD manual variant, and 157g/km for the AWD manual - compared to 159g/km and 169g/km for the more powerful engine.

A new 2.0 litre petrol option joins the line-up, but power and performance figures for this engine have not been released. Carbon emissions however are listed at 175g/km in 2WD manual form, and 192g/km for the AWD manual.

SsangYong says both diesel variants benefit from revised gearing and an updated transmission control system.

The Korean carmaker also describes minor styling tweaks for 2012, including a chrome finish to the mesh grille up front, along with newly styled wiper arms.

Interior images have not been released, but new gloss-black dials, carbon fibre-like highlights and an updated LED-lit instrument cluster is promised.



The updated Korando range will hit Europe in mid-2012. An Australian update has yet to be announced. TMR has contacted the carmaker's local arm for details.

In 2011, SsangYong sold 623 Korando SUVs in Australia.
