SsangYong Korando CSX Review & Buyers' Guide
£15,995Available as: 4x4 Van Engine options: 2.0TD 149hpVolume (m³): 1.3 Payload (kg):
Korando CSX is the smallest 4x4 van available in the UK, which makes it a unique proposition.
SsangYong has developed a light commercial version of its five-door Korando SX four-wheel drive hatchback. That takes its LCV tally to three, joining the Korando Sport pick-up and Rexton car-derived van. Power comes from a 149hp 2.0-litre turbodiesel which develops a very respectable 360Nm of peak torque.Link to the Author
