Where Ssangyong once sent women and children running for cover with its insane body styles (Stavic and Actyon Sports come to mind), the new Korando is a genuine runner for the best-looking small SUV.

But it's much more than skin-deep beauty with a generous spec sheet which includes leather, cruise control, steering controls, radio with MP3/USB/iPod compatibility, and an impressive interior with soft-to-touch materials everywhere.

Its 2-litre turbodiesel engine also feels nice and torquey.

PRICING: R294 995 - R324 995
