Introduction

What Car? says...

For many households, a versatile family SUV fits the everyday transport bill nicely, coping with holidays, shopping trips and the daily commute with ease. There’s no shortage of choice, either, and the Ssangyong Korando shows that it’s worth considering more than just the usual suspects.

By the ‘usual suspects’ we’re talking about those popular models, such as the practical Skoda Karoq, sporty Seat Ateca and big-selling Nissan Qashqai. The Korando, though, puts its own distinct slant on the family SUV package and value is its claimed strength, with seemingly competitive pricing and the inclusion of a seven-year warranty, which only the Kia Sportage can match.

There are four trim levels boasting generous equipment levels and a choice of petrol or diesel power. The petrol is available with a manual or automatic gearbox, while the diesel comes only with the latter but offers the option of four-wheel drive – an obvious feature for an SUV, you might think, but not all of the Korando’s rivals, including the Peugeot 3008, have this. 

An appealing package on paper, then, but can the Korando match the blend of comfort, versatility and economy that its best rivals offer? Read on to find out how the Korando drives, how spacious it is inside and what each trim brings to the table.
