For The Korando gives you a spacious, practical cabin and decent comfort for a seriously low price.

Against It’s noisy, body control is poor and interior quality isn’t up to much.

Ssangyong Korando Crossover
33 5stars

The Ssangyong Korando is roomy, practical and comparatively cheap. Many of its competitors are far better to drive, although some buyers will consider its budget price enough to compensate for that.

Buyer's notes

Target Price team says:

There are around 60 Ssangyong dealerships across the UK, so it may be more of a chore to get to your local dealer than it would to get to one of a more mainstream brand.

Our favourite Korando is the front-wheel-drive SE model; it is the cheapest yet has all the essential equipment, and is as decent to drive as any Korando. If you’re set on four-wheel drive, the SE4 is still very cheap and promises good towing and off-road ability.

Avoid the ELX4 version, which is priced too close to rivals such as the Nissan Qashqai and Skoda Yeti, which are better to drive and to live with.

Also, don’t be tempted by the optional Kenwood colour touch-screen and sat-nav system – it looks like an aftermarket set-up and is nowhere near as good as infotainment units in other SUVs.
