“SsangYong is our partner with a long cooperative relationship. Posco will make its best efforts to help SsangYong further grow as a global SUV maker,” said Choi.

Posco’s high strength steel is used for 74 percent of the new Korando’s car body. Among that, more than 46 percent is advanced high strength steel that improves fuel efficiency through light weight, according to the steelmaker.
