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

Genuinely capable 4x4 can seat seven and tow big loads.

PROS
Tough, rugged and reliable workhorse
Far better than previous model
Huge boot in five-seat mode
Seven-seat version available
CONS
Ride can be choppy
Not much engine/gearbox choice
Relatively unknown brand
Low fuel economy and high tax

The Rexton is a well-priced SUV that has a lot of boot space for the money and can carry seven people.
Reviews are fairly poor though since it’s not good to drive, noisy and has a dull image. It is one of the cheapest ways to move large loads and more people than usual however, so if you’re in that market then it’s worth a look.

Pros
Good off-road
Practical
Long warranty

Cons
Poor ride
Noisy
Outdated

The Rexton’s four-wheel drive system spends most of its life driving the rear wheels only, diverting power to the front when conditions get more slippery. In most of the cars sold in the UK it will be controlled through a Mercedes-sourced seven-speed automatic transmission - but a six-speed manual is likely to be offered on entry-level editions.
The dashboard has a clean look - again, with some cues from the Tivoli - but cross-stitched material panels and Nappa leather add a touch of luxury. The equipment on offer will include dual-zone climate control, a powered rear tailgate that opens automatically when the keyholder has been standing behind it for three seconds, and a new level of safety kit for SsangYong, including nine airbags and rear cross-traffic alert.
