A delegation responsible for representing both Famalco Group and SsangYong Ireland, proudly attended an official media event in Spain, Madrid, during which the Korean vehicle manufacturer proudly unveiled their highly anticipated newest generation C-segment SUV Korando.

Poised to go on sale in the global and European market towards to end of 2019, the new Korando is proof of the change in direction set about by SsangYong, as they invest further in contemporary design, state-of-the-art technology, safety and a variety of power options.

The first evidence of this company shift was with the release of the Tivoli, followed by the XLV, Rexton, Musso and Musso Grand which all underwent a series of improvements. The Korando which had been marked as the next vehicle for release, underwent a rigorous physical and philosophical redesign an effort to adhere to the company’s change in direction.

Through the implementation of this new Korando to the global market, SsangYong aim to establish themselves firmly within the mainstream of SUV C-segment vehicles, promising an option that readily surpasses competition on value and style.
