Updated SsangYong at the Geneva Motor Show

Apologies in advance for forgetting to mention, the progress of this year, coming from SsangYong.

The SUV SsangYong Korando is keeping the headlines busy with its upgrading.The exterior design includes new chromed mesh grille for the front of the car and ‘contemporary looking hybrid wiper blades’.

Sounds interesting enough, right?

When talking about power, we can say that SsangYong is preserving the eco friendly path and combines the 2.0-liter petrol engine which produces CO2 emissions of 175g/km (2WD, manual) and 192g/km (AWD, manual) with the 2.0-liter 149 PS eco diesel engine which brings CO2 emissions down to 147g/km (2WD, manual) and 157g/km (AWD, manual).

Well, not much, but enough to let us know that SsangYong is still alive and plans to keep fighting its way through the tough world of smart vehicles.

SsangYong XIV-1: A Revolutionary Concept


“Sneak peeks” from the Frankfurt Motor Show 2011 continue to amaze our senses. As we already mentioned in a previous article, SsangYong came up this year with a  bunch of new ideas that transformed the concept of SsangYong XIV-1 into a classy, futuristic car.

Although at first glance you will be struck by the obvious resemblance to the Range Rover Evoque, the guys from SsungYong recover with the simply FABULOUS doors that open up like a spaceship.

It is like riding in a limo, but without the length and troubled turns. You will also be welcomed with  leather-lined clamshells for all the seats and a stunning “advanced user interface”.

Unfortunately, we will have to wait further information, but until then, enjoy these beautiful pictures.

What SUV Do You Like Best?


What do you go by when you buy a new car? Is it the exterior design, the interior luxury or the best features in town? After a huuuge number of tests, there has been reached a common agreement that the best SUVs that match anyone’s desires are Kia Sorento, Honda CR-V and SsangYong Kyron.

Highly improved and ready to do some serious damage, for their class and family, these 3 SUVs are pretty cool and decently equipped. Their pricing is also appropriate so that someone who wants to face the town demons can easily be convinced to buy one of these cars.

At first glance, SsangYong looks the best and has acceptable features, but Sorento and CR-V can also be seen as good investments.

Oh, it is such a tough decision!
