The cold weather is always a hot topic at this time of year, and as winter approaches the debate over which tyres to fit warms up.

Whether driving in wet, icy or snowy conditions, the benefits of having the right tyres on your car is proven in test after test, which is why SsangYong fits mud & snow tyres to its cars.

Every Korando crossover, Korando Sports pick-up and Rexton W* is equipped with high specification mud & snow tyres to give optimum grip regardless of the weather or road conditions.  SsangYong equips these cars with leading Korean manufactured tyres which have been specifically developed for premium crossover/SUV vehicles.  These are contemporary all-season tyres whose durable construction and tread pattern ensure high levels of wet and dry weather traction and ride comfort, as well as good wear performance.

Every car in the SsangYong range is available with four wheel drive

The Korando SX, CSX commercial and EX feature a Torque on Demand four-wheel drive system which constantly monitors the level of grip available and distributes power to the wheels that need it most.  Under normal driving conditions the engine’s torque is directed to the front wheels so the car runs with the efficiency of a family hatchback.  However, if the front tyres begin to lose traction, power is automatically fed to the rear wheels to ensure safe, stable and dependable progress is maintained with grip from all four wheels.  An all-wheel drive lock mode is also provided to ensure a 50/50 spread of torque between the front and rear wheels at speeds up to 25mph, essential for when low speed traction and control is needed. 

The Korando Sports pick-up, Rexton W* and Turismo EX are equipped with a switchable four-wheel drive system to ensure excellent off road capability, and also feature a low ratio transfer box to deal with the most extreme loads, inclines and surfaces.  Perfect for both towing and tackling wintry conditions, the 4x4 system utilises SsangYong’s years of experience to deliver the ultimate traction whatever the conditions.

*Note - Rexton W is available to order now and at dealers from mid-December

5 year limitless mileage warranty

All models in the SsangYong range are covered by a best in class 5 year limitless mileage warranty.

Designed to be totally transparent and give customers complete peace of mind, ‘limitless’ means just that: not a maximum mileage condition that some brands impose in their small print.

All the major mechanical components are covered including wheel bearings, suspension joints and bushes, steering joints, shock absorbers and even the audio system.  Wearable components such as clutch discs and brake friction materials which could have their life reduced by poor driving are covered for one year or 12,000 miles, and the battery and paintwork for three years.

SsangYong’s top tips for driving this winter

  • Visibility - keep your windows clean and clear inside and out.  Demist thoroughly.  Defrost any ice from all windows and remove any accumulation of snow from the roof and bonnet before setting off
  • Tyres - make sure your car is fitted with the right tyres, they have ample tread depth and are correctly inflated
  • Lights - keep your lights clean and replace any faulty bulbs immediately
  • Number plates - keep clean and clear of snow to ensure maximum reflection in the dark
  • Speed - reduce your speed especially when dark, driving through puddles and when the temperature drops below 4 degrees celsius
  • Distance - increase the braking distance between you and the car in front when it’s wet or icy
