The new Korean crossover is not expensive by the way!

The SsangYong brand has fallen to almost zero sales in Russia in 2015-2019, and for the last two or three years it has been teetering on the brink of bankruptcy and unable to find a new investor in any way.

However, the company is alive and introduced a new product to its home market – the Torres crossover.

The name Torres is in honor of one of the Chilean National Parks. Apparently this is a hint of adventure and outdoor activities. Together with the brutal design it seems to be right. Only now Torres is in fact a typical crossover: a load-bearing body and a front-wheel drive platform.

Torres will be placed in the lineup between the Korando and Rexton models. This means that the car has a length of 4.6-4.7 m. For the trunk, a very decent volume is indicated: 703 liters with an interior configuration with five seats. If there’s not enough, you can throw the little things in the lockable box outside on the starboard side. A clear borrowing from the new Defender, while the radiator grille pattern was spied on by Jeeps.

Below the 12.3-inch media system removed from the panel is another one. The climate control is controlled via an 8-inch touchscreen. The climate system is dual-zone, there is ventilation for the front seats.

The technical stuff, by modern standards, is unpretentious: a 1.5 turbo engine with a capacity of 170 forces, a 6-speed automatic Aisin, front-wheel drive in the “base” or full, for a fee – with a banal clutch in the rear-wheel drive.

The starting price in Korea is 21 thousand dollars.

Next year, the range should be supplemented with an electric car.
