The 4th Gen Korando is an SUV that's come along way, the model we had was the diesel now this is a 1.6 Turbo this is smaller than previous versions yet just as torquey.
We have the Pioneer trim, with the 1.6 diesel engine coupled to a 6 speed automatic, there are 4 trims available, the ELX, Ventura, Pioneer and Ultimate.
It's practical, well trimmed and you can get tech including full LED's, virtual navigation in the cluster and lot more.
The clever thing with the new Korando is safety is the same across the whole range. Interiors vary dependant on trim, as for driving it, great combo, runs well, gets a touch louder at higher revs, smooth changes not as smooth as say a 9 speed, however that makes sense.
There are 3 driving modes, these change the characteristics of the SUV. Steering is direct and there is little body roll unless you hammer it, overall a great SUV.
Prices start at under £20,000 and top out around £32,000, watch out for petrol and electric models in the future.
