The SsangYong Korando Commercial has been named Commercial SUV of the Year 2014.

The category is part of the overall Continental Irish Van of the Year Awards run by the Irish Motoring Writers' Association (IMWA).

All nine voting members of the IMWA Van Jury took part in the vote, taking into account such attributes as load capacity, reliability, overall versatility, cost of ownership and drive comfort.

John Keogh of SsangYong Ireland accepted the award.

Tom Dennigan of Continental Tyres Ireland said that in today's tough commercial vehicle market, this vehicle had been singled out by the Irish Motoring Writers' Association van experts. He went on to say that he was sure that the award would provide a huge boost for Korando Commercial.

The Commercial SUV and Car Derived Van of the Year titles are category awards under the umbrella of the Continental Irish Van of the Year. 

The overall Continental Irish Van of the Year 2014 award went to the Mercedes Benz Sprinter.
