Korean brand Ssangyong has added a small 4x4 van to its Korando line-up based on the passenger carrying Korando SX.
The Korando CSX has a 433kg payload, a two-tonne towing capacity and a load volume of just over 1.3m3.
The manufacturer said the light commercial would be ideal as a small delivery van or as a go-anywhere vehicle for service engineers.
The Korando CSX is powered by a 2.0-litre 149hp diesel engine, which produces 360Nm of torque and emits 157g/km of CO2.
It has a price tag of £15,995, excluding VAT, and comes with a five-year, limitless mileage warranty.
The flat load area is accessed via a high-lifting tailgate or two side doors.
The load deck is 1525mm long and measures 965mm between the wheel arches.
The Korando CSX is equipped with ESP, hill start assist and mud and snow tyres as standard.
Converted to an LCV in the UK, the CSX retains features from its passenger car sibling such as roof rails, tinted glass and rear parking sensors.
Inside the cab it has a leathered covered steering wheel and gear shift, cruise control and a Kenwood MP3 CD and RDS radio with iPod and Bluetooth, remote audio controls and six speakers.
