Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

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

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

The Mercedes-Benz EQC is all new for the 2020 model year.

Pros
Plush cabin,
refined handling,
costs less than some competitors.

Cons
Some rivals offer quicker acceleration,
shorter driving range than some competing models,
infotainment system's touchpad comes with a learning curve.

By: 
caranddriver.com

Pros
All-electric powertrain
Familiar and handsome styling
Impressive performance
Spacious interior
Customizable regen

Cons
Is 200 miles enough range?
May be too conservative for some
Too late?

The first Mercedes-Benz EV is deliberately free of revolutionary tendencies, but for many of its SUV customers it could be an introduction to a new world of motoring.The first Mercedes-Benz fully electric vehicle (EV) to be sold in Australia has arrived. It's called the EQC and is targeted at the Jaguar I-Pace, Tesla Model X, and imminent Audi e-tron.

Pros
Quiet, wafting driving experience
Loaded with cabin tech
Outstanding safety credentials
Understated design a genuine point of difference

Cons
Moderate driving range
Back seats and boot nothing special
Front suspension can get crashy
Supply appears to be quite limited
