SsangYong Korando 'Pulls Away' With Tow Car Of The Year Award

44 cars from 20 manufacturers were assessed by the judges, and the Korando saw off stiff competition from other leading brands in the ‘Vehicles under £24,000 Class’.

Comment about the Korando from the Caravan and Motorhome Club said: “This year’s competition was full of surprises.  One such surprise was the terrific performance that this super little sub-£20k car delivered.  A kerbweight of 1,828kg opens up the choice of potential caravans to include many popular tourers.  One judge was taken aback by the SsangYong’s “awesome” stability at high speeds, while another commented on its ability to make precise high-speed lane changes.”

Accepting the award, Steve Gray, communications and marketing director of SsangYong Motor UK, said: “We are naturally delighted.  Every model in the SsangYong range offers the caravanner a value for money vehicle with an impressive towing capability, and winning this prestigious award for the Korando further reinforces this proposition.”
As in previous years, the competition was held at the Millbrook Proving Ground in Bedfordshire.
