SsangYong Korando 2020 review: ELX

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


When it comes to Korean cars, there’s no doubt that they have now achieved – and on some numbers – even surpassed their Japanese rivals.

Once seen as cheap nasty alternatives, Hyundai and Kia at very least have well and truly entered the mainstream and are widely accepted by Australia’s buyers.

We know that story though, which is why this time we’re looking at a different one. It’s a name from the past that hopes to reignite some of that Korean success… SsangYong.

After a less than ideal start for the brand during the ‘90s where its design and quality couldn’t quite match the standards of even its Korean rivals, it is back bigger and better than before. Can its latest model, the Korando mid-size SUV be the car that changes Australia’s mind on the brand?

We took a mid-spec ELX for a week to find out.

Lamborghini urus

Vinay Parameswaran says:

I believe they are using an Indian designed / made engine.

Lourens Dreyer says:

Ssangyong will make you weep like a child once you discover how shockingly bad it is. It's just like a boat, you will only be happy twice, when you buy it and the day you get rid of it.

Christian Alexandrou says:

You don't mention the top of the range the interior is so different

Edgar Renje says:

The old Korando wasn't ugly at all. I hope they will finally establish everywhere. There will also be an all-electric version of it at the end of this year. Again: Hopefully they really can bring it to market.

Super_Slav says:

Certainly better than Mazdas offering.

Sam says:

Safety rating?

Emily says:

I fail to see how you rated this car higher than the MG HS.

Dan Moloney says:

Dan Moloney says:
