The Korando is often overlooked by compact SUV buyers, but since this is all-new and much improved, maybe they should take a look first.
The safety organization also tested the new CLA, Audi A1, BMW Z4, Skoda Kamiq, SsangYong Korando and Ford Focus.
The all-new SsangYong Korando only offers 4WD with the 136 PS (134 hp) 1.6-liter turbo diesel.
The SsangYong Rexton ICE Edition has a £34,995 starting price and will arrive at dealers this month.
The SsangYong Tivoli LE is based on the existing ELX derivative and features a new Orange Pop color.
The updated Tivoli has a significantly improved cabin with a digital instrument cluster and a more modern infotainment system.
The base 2019 Tivoli has a £14,495 starting price in the UK, whereas the longer XLV starts from £19,745.
The 2019 Korando is roomier, more modern inside and out, and will soon offer an all-electric variant.
Sssangyong is entering Europe’s compact SUV arena with the new Korando.
The fourth-gen Korando combines a Rexton-inspired exterior with a digitized interior.
Some of the covers still allow the South Korean utility vehicle to retain its truck appearance.
The mid-cycle upgrade should include both the front and rear fascia, interior tech and trim, maybe even a revised engine range.
