SsangYong Korando on UK shores

The new SsangYong Korando crossover has reached British shores and is due to go on sale here next month

Its manufacturer has hailed the car for having the practicality of a 4x4/SUV and accessibility of a hatchback. The Korando will face stiff competition from the Ford Kuga, Hyundai ix35, Kia Sportage, Nissan Qashqai and Volkswagen Tiguan.

The Korando joins SsangYong’s the current model line-up, which includes the Kyron (£14,995 - £22,495), Rexton (£16,995 - £20,995) and Rodius (£14,995 - £19,995). The new car is expected to have a pricetag of something within the same range. Not cheap.

However, SsangYong clearly feel it’s worth the extra pennies. A statement from the company reads:

‘This brand new 175PS diesel engine makes Korando one of the most powerful in its class. A comprehensive five-year or 250,000 mile warranty, excellent fuel economy and low running costs will also set a new benchmark of affordability in the rapidly growing compact crossover segment.’
