The SsangYong Korando is an SUV with lots of equipment and good handling. It is certainly a stylish SUV which also offers lots of space.
There's just the one diesel engine available, it's a 2.2 litre unit that offers plenty of punch and produces 175 bhp. In two-wheel drive, the engine will return 53 mpg with emissions of 139g/km. The engine can be noisy but it offers plenty of performance, particularly at speed on motorways, for instance.
Still something of an unknown quantity in the UK as a carmaker, the SsangYong Korando looks set to be the car that gives them a wider audience. The vehicle itself offers a lot for the money with standard equipment including cruise control, air con, alloy wheels, Bluetooth connectivity and electric windows. Other models come with a reversing camera, heated front seats, climate control, parking sensors and a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system. There's also satnav and larger alloy wheels. The options list is very short and includes a different stereo and metallic paint.
The steering is light and the engine produces a fast response when necessary and it's a comfortable car to drive over long distances. It's easy to drive around town and the electronic stability control offer some level of reassurance and some models come with rear parking sensors which often prove useful. There's also plenty of space on board for passengers and the boot is a useful 486 litres in size though this will expand to an impressive 1,312 litres when the rear seats are folded flat. There's also plenty of safety kit too including lots of airbags.
There's a lot to recommend the SsangYong Korando including the kit list and it's a comfortable car when driving around town but for those who want some reassurance, the firm offers the vehicle with a five-year unlimited mileage warranty which should underpin its construction standards.
