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

By:

The MG ZS EV offers a lot for the money in the electric car world, with good interior space, a big boot and plenty of standard equipment. The thing to remember, though, is that more expensive electric cars, such as the Nissan Leaf and Kia e-Niro, are generally better to drive and, thanks to better resale values, might not cost you that much more in the long run.

Pros
Lot of room for passengers
Big boot
Well equipped

Cos
Poor predicted resale values
Limited steering wheel adjustment
Not that comfortable or good to drive

By:

Pros

Practical

Cos
Cheap interior feel
Wallowy handling
No companion app

By: 
carbuyer.co.uk

PROS
Low list price and good finance options
Usable electric range and performance
Seven-year warranty, five-star safety rating
Practicality unaffected by EV conversion

CONS
Less range than key rivals
It’s not quite as cheap as we had hoped
Low-rent interior
Not exciting to drive
