SsangYong Korando

Our unique Expert Ratings combine scores from 25 of the top UK motoring websites to give you a definitive rating on every new car

Expert Rating

The SsangYong Korando is a mid-sized SUV/crossover that sits between the smaller Tivoli and larger Rexton in the SsangYong SUV family. The current model was launched at the 2019 Geneva motor show and arrived in the UK in summer of the same year.

The Korando has received reasonable reviews from the UK motoring media, ranging from average to very good. Its overall Expert Rating of 56% (as of August 2021) puts it in the bottom half of the field mid-sized mainstream SUVs, but it is certainly right among the midfield rather than well off the pace.

The SsangYong Korando has been widely praised for being a significant improvement over the previous model and other models in the SsangYong range. It’s also the first SsangYong to receive a five-star safety rating from Euro NCAP. However, it’s no longer really a budget option and there are plenty of other choices that offer better quality and resale value at a similar price.

Eco rating

Independent emissions and efficiency ratings from Green NCAP

No eco rating

The Skoda Korando has not been lab tested by Green NCAP. This is a new initiative, launched in 2018 as a sister organisation to Euro NCAP. As yet, very few new cars have been tested for environmental impact by Green NCAP, and inevitable the testing programme was halted in early 2020 by the coronavirus pandemic.

Security rating

Independent vehicle theft and security ratings from Thatcham Research

No security rating

The Skoda Korando has not been tested for anti-theft protection by Thatcham Research. This is a new initiative that was launched in 2019 to assess, in particular, the security of new cars with keyless entry and keyless start systems. If the Korando is tested, we will update this page.
