Road Test: SsangYong Korando SX

SsangYong seem to have come on leaps and bounds in recent years – in fact, during 2012 they took a hearty 351 per cent rise in registrations, with nearly 1,000 models hitting the roads in twelve months. AOL Cars takes a look at what's tipped to be its most popular model, the Korando mini-SUV.

What is it?
SsangYong's most recent addition to its revitalised range, boasting chunky off-road looks and a spacious, practical interior.

What's under the bonnet?
The Korando is only offered with a 2.0-litre diesel engine with 175bhp, and the more tax-friendly 149bhp version fitted to the SX we have here. It undoubtedly pulls well - helping to increase the Korando's towing capabilities - but against its more mainstream rivals it can feel a bit on the noisy side.
