Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

SsangYongs have been on sale in the UK since the ’90s – the company usually offers big SUVs for less than the majority of their competitors. Sadly, most of their models have proved to be lacklustre alternatives to the likes of the Kia Sportage, Suzuki Vitara and Nissan Qashqai.
To drive, the Korando isn’t much fun, but most people buy one because they need an SUV either for tackling rough terrain or towing – two roles the SsangYong is perfectly suited to.

Pros
Lots of space
Relatively economical
Generous standard kit

Cons
Fast depreciation
Dull styling
Cheap feeling interior

The SsangYong Korando gives you a lot of car for your money – but nowhere near as much as a Dacia Duster.The SsangYong Korando is the brand’s mid-size SUV, pitched as a low-cost rival to the Nissan Qashqai, Hyundai Tucson and Kia Sportage.
On the move, the Korando isn’t as stable as a lot of its rivals, either – it tends to wallow about when going around corners and has an uncomfortable ride.

Pros
Good value for money
Spacious interior
Low emissions

Cons
Noisy diesel engine
Poor-quality plastics
Uncomfortable suspension

Not only was it a handsome addition to the compact crossover market, it was also the firm’s very first monocoque model – meaning it delivered a far better approximation of a car’s handling characteristics than any of the body-on-frame SUVs that continue to fill out the firm’s modest lineup.
On the plus side, the Korando gets large storage bins, reach and rake adjustment for the steering wheel and generous equipment levels on higher-spec models. It is also competitive on interior space; offering decent leg and headroom for rear passengers, and acceptable luggage space.
The interior is slightly less forgettable, but only because it comes partly clad in the kind of cheap plastic which cannot otherwise find a home in this class. The redesigned dashboard makes ergonomic sense, although it hasn’t lost any of its brittleness.

The 2019 Dodge Journey has dropped entirely off our charts thanks to outdated style, safety, and technology.

Pros
Low price
Seven-seat capability
Good optional infotainment
Versatile interior

Cons
Bad safety scores
Limited features
Dated feel
Underwhelming in almost every way

By:

Dodge does little to make the Journey more competitive for 2019. However, the company has dropped the SXT trim and pared down the lineup to three models: SE, Crossroad, and GT. The change means more standard features and options on the entry-level Journey SE, which can now be had with the V-6 powertrain. Likewise, its front and rear ends have sportier styling as well as new fog lamps and LED taillights. All models are now available with Destroyer Gray exterior paint, among the other color choices.

Pros
Competitive pricing,
easy-to-use infotainment,
lots of storage space.

Cons
Cut-rate interior,
poor handling,
lacks driver-assist tech.
