A keen purchase price will no doubt be one of the main draws to anyone interested in the Korando, because, as hinted above, its prices significantly undercut any other car of this size, and are more in line with SUVs from the class below; think Nissan Juke or Renault Captur.
Entry-level ELX models come with air-con, alloy wheels, keyless entry, front and rear electric windows, cruise control and Bluetooth connectivity. Ventura models add rear privacy glass, an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system, faux leather upholstery, heated front seats, climate control and 18in wheels.
The Pioneer model is geared towards caravan owners and comes with a 2 tonne towing limit, all-weather tires and a full-size spare wheel, alongside the equipment of the Ventura model. Top-spec Ultimate models add the aforementioned larger infotainment alongside leather upholstery and a raft of safety systems including auto emergency braking, lane departure warning and lane-keeping assistance.
While the Korando is cheap to buy, running it will be more costly. Its CO2 emissions are somewhat higher than rivals and lead to it falling into the highest benefit-in-kind bracket for company car users. Official fuel consumption figures are improved compared to the previous model, but are nothing class-leading, either.
