Ssangyong can be considered one of the ‘dark horse’ manufacturers which, like Mitsubishi, wants to make its mark in the four-wheel drive SUV industry by outpricing the competition with some heavy-specced models.

Contemporary styling inside and out makes the Ssangyong range a perfect choice if you’re looking to get behind the wheel of a car which keeps up with the times. While on the outside there isn’t a great deal of difference to separate the mid-level Korando from the range-topping Turismo, but stepping into the cars is a different kettle of fish.
Even the Korando comes with smart metallic finishes in the front and a dashboard uniquely designed off the back of inspiration from the fretboard of an unnamed musical instrument. Quirky styling aside, Ssangyong’s rookie model scores well on practicality, with huge door bins, enough width to seat five adults and a massive 486 litres of boot space.
Ssangyong might have just pulled off the all-round affordable SUV with the entry-level Tivoli, which features electronic cruise control and automatic emergency braking. While DAB radio isn’t standard, there’s plenty of off-road potential which pits it well against the Nissan Juke and Kia Soul, particularly when you consider the four-wheel drive option which is available on some of the higher trims.
The big fish in Ssangyong’s pond is the Turismo, which has one of the biggest interiors within the SUV market yet is still affordable. The Turismo’s 2+2+3 layout is unorthodox yet refreshingly versatile, allowing the rear bench to be removed or folded forward for extra luggage space. Or, two beds can be created by folding the middle row backwards; the middle seats and back row together; or the front and middle seats together.
