Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The Niro isn't our favorite car to drive, but it's perfect for drivers who care as much about fuel efficiency as they do about their budget.

Pros
Efficiently rated up to 52 mpg,
affordable,
practicality of a crossover.

Cons
Some trims lack basic amenities,
uninspiring performance,
plug-in hybrid has limited EV range.

The 2020 Kia Niro is a compelling eco-friendly car for those opposed to Prius-like looks.

Pros
Oh so frugal
Comfortable, roomy interior
Excellent value
SUV-ish looks

Cons
No AWD option
Light on thrills
High-trim version uses more fuel
Automatic emergency braking should be standard

The Korando is a well-proportioned, generously sized and specced compact crossover. That’s a mighty strong starting point in today’s market.The old one was a favourite choice of value-seeking caravanners and trailerists. The new one with diesel power will haul a two-tonne trailer too.

Pros
Space,
equipment,
cheap but doesn't look it

Cons
Sluggish diesel engine,
lumpy suspension

By: 
topgear.com

The Ssangyong Korando is a closer rival to its European rivals than ever before, and combines versatility with agility and generous equipment, at an attractive price. Its running costs are rather high, though, and ride comfort could be better, so it’s hard to recommend the Korando over the best in this class.

Pros
Good value
Powerful engine
Very practical

Cons
Offset driving position
High running costs
Poor resale values
