Amber Lawrence sings Ssangyong's praise
Amber Lawrence is a well known name on the country music circuit. And that means
this popular, young songstress is always busy, driving everywhere, talking a
lot, drinking coffee... a lot, constantly listening to music, and carting around
all the bits and pieces she needs for performances and public appearances.
Amber is not your typical diva, but she does take style seriously. She also
takes safety seriously and is conscious of her car's impact on the environment,
as well as her wallet. With all this in mind, here's what she had to say about
her new travel companion, the Korando.
"My Korando feels really sturdy and safe to drive, which is comforting on the
longer cross country trips I make. In saying that, it's also really zippy, for
lack of a more car-talk term. When I'm weaving through the inner city, it's
quick off the lights and easy to accelerate swiftly if I need to.
"I love that the seats fold completely flat in the back. It's excellent for
travelling especially as a musician who has to transport lots of large items and
bits and pieces, but it would also be great for girls that ride bikes, or go
camping or have a pram to consider.
"My wallet also loves the Korando. The diesel engine makes it incredibly
economical and definitely better value than my previous car, so I'm saving money
which is always good.
"But let's be honest. My favourite things about the car, is having all the
controls on the steering wheel, including the control for the Bluetooth... which
frankly, rocks! And there're plenty of cup holders and little compartments to
store stuff. All in all, it's perfect for a girl like me," said Amber.
The Korando is Ssangyong's first all-new model in more than three years and this
stylish and contemporary SUV is set to redefine the Ssangyong brand. In line
with the revitalised Ssangyong brand, Amber was appointed as the ambassador for
the new Korando. Amber has been bonding with her new car for the past few months
and making appearance throughout the Korando launch campaign.
