The Ssangyong Korando is good value, spacious and reasonably powerful, but it can’t match its rivals for all-round appealread the full model review
This may be the entry-level model, but you still get plenty of equipment. It includes cruise control, heated electric door mirrors, keyless entry, air-conditioning, iPod and Bluetooth connectivity plus alloy wheels.
This is the sole engine available in the UK, a 2.2-litre turbodiesel with a healthy 176bhp. It doesn’t make the Korando fast, but it does make it flexible even in the higher gears. It may not be that refined, but it’s easy to see why the Korando is popular as a tow car.
