It's short on engine options, too, and fuel economy isn’t great. The Korando is worth a look, but there are much better options available.

Ultimate gives you all the bells and whistles. These include leather upholstery, keyless entry and start, a heated steering wheel, heated front seats, privacy glass and climate control, a bigger 9.0in infotainment screen and LED headlights.

Other rivals – the Skoda Karoq and Seat Ateca – offer a wider range of significantly more impressive petrol engines, most of which are far quicker and more efficient. Adding the automatic gearbox makes it slower still and it’s not very responsive.
