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.
We’re talking about popular choices such as the clever Skoda Karoq, sporty Seat Ateca and best-selling Nissan Qashqai. The Korando, though, puts its own distinct slant on the Family SUV package, and value is a definite strength: its price undercuts most rivals, and it also comes with a seven-year warranty that only the Kia Sportage can match.
There’s a choice of four trim levels, each of which is generously equipped. There’s a petrol or a diesel engine, and certain combinations of engine and trim are available with an automatic gearbox and four-wheel drive – the latter being quite a rare thing in this class.
An appealing package on paper, then, but can the Korando match the blend of comfort, versatility and economy that its best rivals can offer? Read on to find out how the Korando drives, how spacious it is inside and what each trim brings to the table.
