SsangYong Road Tests

We've driven the new 1.5-litre petrol Korando - how does it compare to mainstream alternatives like the Nissan Qashqai and Skoda Karoq?

SsangYong may not be a household name in the UK, but it's hoping to carve out a niche as a specialist brand for 4x4s and crossovers.

The new 2019 SsangYong Korando is suddenly up there amongst the best mid-size SUVs with a level of quality and kit that puts it close to top of the class.

The new 2018 SsangYong Musso pick-up is based on the impressive Ssangyong Rexton G4 SUV and shares its 3,500kg towing capacity. Unlike the previous Musso that had a solid front axle it is now double wishbone independent at the front and, unusual for a pick up (Nissan Navara, Mercedes X-Class excepted), has coil springs supporting the load bed. That should give it better ride quality than the old fashioned leaf springs under most trucks, but we’ll get onto that bit later.

This car is huge. In black, it looks like the transport of Triads in a Tartan Asian Extreme Thaikwando movie. Underneath it's a hefty ladderframe...

The new independently sprung Ssangyong Rexton G4 isn't just about a 3,500kg towing capacity for the least money, the top version is surprisingly luxurious and decent to drive.

It may be a touch rough around the edges, but the SsangYong Rexton W offers a lot of 4x4 for the money.

With a base price of £12,950 the Tivoli is exceptional value but does the top of the range ELX 4x4 model at almost £20k make a good buy?

The Tivoli marks a big step forward for the SsangYong and could be the car that propels the Korean brand into the mainstream.

The XLV is just like a Tivoli except it has a larger, more practical boot. It's only available in top ELX trim, though.

The original SsangYong Turismo was just vast. Now a new EU6 engine and 7-speed autobox make a vast improvement.
