They were highly satisfied with Korando's competitiveness and were enthused about pushing its sales.
Also, 100 of local distributors and representatives attended Korando's UK launching event on the 2nd of April in Birmingham, northwest of London, UK.

The new Korando, which was first introduced to the global market at 2019 Geneva Motor Show since its domestic debut made at the end of February, is equipped with cutting-edge technology such as high-efficiency gasoline engines and enhanced safety and 2.5-level autonomous driving technology. SsangYong plans to expand its global sales to Central and South America, the Middle East, and Oceania.
