SsangYong has introduced new drive-away pricing across much of its Australian line-up this week, cutting thousands from most models.
Leading the charge is the 110kW/197Nm 4x2 petrol Korando S, priced at $21,990 drive-away in six-speed manual form and $23,990 with the six-speed auto.
Features include 16-inch alloy wheels, air conditioning, cruise control, Bluetooth calling and audio streaming, six airbags, electronic stability control, brake assist and electronic brakeforce distribution and rear parking sensors.
All Korandos sold in Australia through the SsangYong national dealer network are covered by a five-year / 100,000km warranty and five years of 24/7 roadside assist.
The Korando S model’s new pricing marks a significant reduction, following its launch early last year at $27,990 drive-away; itself a $4000 increase on the pricing of the pre-update model that arrived in January 2013.
SsangYong has also cut a full $2000 from other models, with the Korando SX petrol automatic at $25,990 drive away, the seven-seat Stavic starting at $29,990 drive-away and the 4x4 Rexton priced at $37,990 drive-away.
“Every effort will be made to hold these price points after April,” SsangYong Australia marketing and sales boss Brent Jewell said.
“But a lot will depend on currency exchange rates. We are enormously pleased to be lowering our prices while almost everything else seems to be going up.”
