SsangYong Korando priced from £19,995

Published 20 August 2019

The new SsangYong Korando will be priced from £19,995 when an entry-level petrol model arrives later in the year. This brings it in-line with mainstream rivals like the Nissan Qashqai and Kia Sportage.

More stylish than its predecessor, SsangYong's hoping its Korando's seven-year warranty and high levels of standard equipment will appeal to new buyers - as well as its traditional customer base of caravanners and trailer towers.

The Korando will initially be offered with a 1.6-litre diesel engine producing 136PS and 324Nm of torque, capable of returning 48.7mpg under WLTP tests. It emits 144g/km CO2 under NEDC tests and accelerates from 0-62mph in 12 seconds.

A 1.5-litre turbocharged petrol will arrive in the UK in December 2019, providing 163PS and 280Nm of torque.
