For The engine is punchy, there’s decent space in the cabin, and it also comes with plenty of standard equipment.

Against The steering is horribly long-winded and the ride is fidgety. The payload limit is also rather light.

The Ssangyong Korando Sports is punchy and fairly smooth, especially so with the manual gearbox fitted. It’s also well equipped. Pricing is its strongest weapon.

Buyer's notes

Target Price team says:

This is the part where we usually tell you which version of the car is best, but that’s a bit tricky in this case; Ssangyong hasn’t yet confirmed the prices and specs for the Korando Sports.

There are no choices to be made when it comes to engine, because all versions have the same 153bhp 2.0-litre turbodiesel. You can stick with the standard six-speed manual transmission or add a six-speed automatic ‘box as an optional extra. Both are fine; it’s just a case of whether you prefer an auto and whether you’re prepared to pay for it.
