The latest Korando has been announced by SsangYong, and for 2016 it features a more powerful 176bhp 2.2-litre diesel engine. But despite the increase, CO₂ emission and fuel economy figures are better than before. Two-wheel-drive editions now emit 139g/km of CO₂, with 53.3mpg capable on the combined cycle, which compares favourably to the 147g/km and 47.1mpg managed by the outgoing 2.0-litre model.

Inevitably prices have increased by £1000 compared to before, with the six model line-up kicking off at £15,995. Both entry-level SE models and mid-range EX versions are offered with a choice of both two- and four-wheel-drive, while the top-of-the-range ELX editions come paired to four-wheel-drive, with the option of a six-speed manual or automatic transmission. Like its predecessor, the Korando is likely to win buyers thanks to its superb towing capacity of 2,000kg for all versions.
