The SsangYong Korando is a compact crossover that has proved a popular budget tow car and family-friendly sport utility vehicle (SUV).
The Korando raised SsangYong’s image, in terms of style and quality, and offered plenty of powertrain choice with front and on-demand four-wheel drive, petrol and diesel and six-speed manual and automatic transmissions.
The Korando was launched in 2011 with a powerful 175PS 2.0-litre turbo diesel engine, later joined by an entry 149PS unit, but was replaced in the 2015 mid-life makeover with a 178PS 2.2-litre unit. While only slightly more powerful, the new engine offers more torque and better economy so boosting its tow car credentials.
A 149PS 2.0-litre petrol engine, with manual gearbox and front-wheel drive, was introduced later in an entry-level SE trim.
The turbo diesels can tow a braked trailer weighing up to two tonnes and its value and pulling power have resulted in class wins in tow car of the year competitions.
Originally launched in S, ES and EX grades, the latter with 4x4, limited edition LE has also featured during its lifetime. The grade structure evolved into 2WD S and ES and 4WD SX and EX, with automatic transmission optional on the top models. Later the model range became SE, EX and ELX which were followed up by a high-spec Ultimate variant.
The five-door Korando is roomy enough to carry five passengers while the 486-litre boot expands to 1,312 litres with the rear seat backs folded flat.
