SsangYong tow cars

SsangYong tow cars

Tested SsangYongs

The SsangYong Korando is increasing as a preferred choice amongst members of the Caravan and Motorhome Club, having a generous kerbweight to tow heavier caravans at a modest price (of course subject to the driver having the correct licence). The Korando SE picked up class awards in 2014 and 2018.

If you're considering purchasing a SsangYong, make sure you check out our tow car buying guide for all the little tidbits of information that are important when choosing which model to buy.
