Ssangyong Korando 2021

Our most recent review of the 2021 Ssangyong Korando resulted in a score of 7 out of 10 for that particular example.

Carsguide Byron Mathioudakis had this to say at the time: The still-fresh SsangYong Korando ELX 1.5T auto 2WD won’t appeal to brand snobs, and it isn’t the most immersive driving experience over a winding set of roads (despite having a gutsy yet refined and frugal powertrain), but as an urban family-sized hauler, the handsome, roomy, well-specified, comfortable and thoroughly modern midsized SUV is impressively capable, with a charm you may not be expecting. Considering how keenly priced it is, and backed by a five-star safety rating and seven-year warranty, it definitely deserves a good, hard look, especially if value-for-money is a top priority.

Ssangyong Korando 2021 Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Ssangyong Korando here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • What small or mid-sized SUV should I buy?

    For a start, some owners are not mad about the Subaru’s CVT transmission. It’s not that it’s necessarily unreliable, they just don’t like the way it works with an occasional hesitation and a slight jerkiness at light throttle applications. Some people never notice it, but others find it a real distraction. The Kia meanwhile, has been getting good reviews across the trade, largely thanks to the Australian-input into the model’s suspension settings.

    Of course, you need to personally drive all three cars on your short-list as there will be things you like and dislike about each one, some of which will be deal-breakers.

    The SsangYong is certainly the unknown quantity, but mainly because of the brand’s on-again-off-again relationship with the Australian market. But now, with head-office support (the Australian operation is the only factory-owned distributorship outside the brand’s native South Korea) things are looking a bit brighter for buyers and that’s backed up by the factory seven-year/unlimited kilometre warranty that also includes fixed price servicing and roadside-assistance for seven years. That’s got to represent peace of mind.

  • Is Korando a good SUV choice?

    I recommend cars I would be happy to see my best friend driving and, for that reason, nothing with a Ssangyong badge currently makes the cut.
