Ssangyong achieves victory in the Spanish Off-Road Regularity Cup and in the Eco Challenge Burn

21 July, 2014

The Rexton comfortably won the fourth stage of the Spanish Off-road Regularity Cup with a car specially prepared for the occasion and driven by a member of staff of the official SsangYong dealer in Teruel.

Meanwhile, the Korando, equipped with a 2 litre 149 hp turbo diesel engine, achieved a brilliant average consumption figure of only 5.3 litres/100 km.  It required only 8 litres of fuel to complete the demanding course of the Eco Challenge and rose to first place in the SUV 4×2 category, overtaking smaller vehicles with less powerful engines in the process.  It also reached an overall second place, standing out of a total of 33 entered cars, being surpassed only by a vehicle with a 1300 cc engine.
