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.

Capable of over 50mpg, the Hyundai Kona Hybrid is the pick of the range if your budget doesn't stretch to the fully electric Kona.

PROS
Cheap to run
Plenty of equipment
Clear infotainment setup

CONS
Small boot
Sluggish acceleration
Optional safety features

Three trim levels will be available for the Korean petrol-electric SUV in Great Britain, though we're still waiting for the new model to be confirmed for Australia.In the UK, the Kona Hybrid will be offered in three trim levels – SE, Premium and Premium SE. All versions team a 1.6-litre direct-injection 'GDi' four-cylinder petrol engine with a 32kW/170Nm electric motor and 1.56kWh battery, quoting system outputs of 103.7kW (@5700rpm) and 265Nm (@4000rpm).Hyundai claims the front-driven hybrid crossover will accelerate from 0-100 in 11.2 seconds (11.6 for Premium and Premium SE), and hit a top speed of 115mph (185km/h).
