93. SSANGYONG KO­RANDO

Auto Express - - Winter Driving Special -

IF you need an SUV that can tow up to two tonnes and don’t want to spend a great deal of cash in the process, then the Ko­rando might hold some ap­peal.

How­ever, the 2.2-litre diesel en­gine is noisy, the Ssangyong han­dles like a ship in a gale, its in­te­rior feels pretty cheap and run­ning costs are high.

The re­al­ity is that in a crowded and fast-mov­ing SUV mar­ket, the Ko­rando has been left trail­ing. Hav­ing said that, you do get quite a lot of car for your money. Price range: £15,800-£23,500 Our pick: SE (£17,000) En­gine: 2.2-litre 4cyl diesel, 176bhp Trans­mis­sion: 6-spd man­ual, per­ma­nent 4WD Top speed: 115mph Econ­omy: 44.8mpg CO2: 152g/km
