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 T-Roc may be among the most significant of many new Volkswagen models, even if it won’t be sold in the United States in the foreseeable future. It’s a new crossover that is roughly the same size as the Golf and is based on the same MQB architecture. For now, at least, the Golf will remain the mainstay of the brand’s lineup, but those within the company who are concerned with sales-growth rates are far more interested in the crossover-SUV segment nearly everywhere on the globe.

Pros
Golf-like driving dynamics,
decent packaging,
adventurous design (for VW).

Cons
Only average interior quality,
firm ride,
we likely won’t get it.

The T-Roc is a small family car that blends the high driving position and big boot of an SUV with the economical engines from a conventional small car. It is quite expensive, however…

Pros
More comfortable than alternatives
Well equipped as standard
Decent range of engines

Cons
Cheap-feeling interior plastics
Alternatives are cheaper
Back seats could be more spacious

By:

The Volkswagen T-Roc looks good, drives well and offers plenty of space, but it's pricey and some rivals have a nicer interior.

Pros
Easy to personalise
Good to drive
Stylish

Cons
Expensive
Interior quality issues
Rivals offer better value
