What used Ssangyong Korando estate will I get for my budget?
It’s possible to buy an earlier 2.0-litre Korando with a high mileage for around £4000, but we’d recommend spending more, maybe between £5000 and £6000, and looking for one with an average mileage for the year and a full history. Up the money to between £7000 and £9000 and you’ll get post-facelift, 2014/2015 cars from independent dealers, all in good condition and with full dealer facilities. Spend £10,000 and upwards and you’ll bag a 2015 or 2016 car with a low mileage and full history.
How much does it cost to run a Ssangyong Korando estate?
Unsurprisingly, it’s the current 2.2-litre diesel models that are the most efficient. In SE trim, official average fuel consumption is 53.3mpg, with corresponding CO2 emissions of 139g/km. The four-wheel drive models fare poorer, raising consumption to 48.7mpg and CO2 emissions to 152g/km, while the automatic gearbox pushes those figures down to 41.5mpg and up to 177g/km.
Annual road tax is based on CO2 emissions for cars registered before 1 April 2017, which means you’ll pay slightly less for older Korandos than for ones registered after that date, which will all fall into the flat rate of £140 per year.
Insurance groupings are in the range 26 to 28, which is about average for the class.
Servicing is required every 12 months or 12,500 miles, and costs are roughly on a par with competitors'. There are no service plans currently available.
