Verdict

The Ssangyong Korando e-xDi 220 [4WD] and the Bailey Pegasus Palermo of a laden weight of 1760 kg is a combination just suitable for most journeys but also with some limitations.

Weight

The risk of snaking at higher speeds, strong side winds and thoughtless driving exist. Even if the combination normally feels stable, the forces by deflection side to side are so great that it could be dangerous. Only if the driver has knowledge of and experience in driving a caravan it should be safe to drive. Proper and careful loading is essential! An electronic stability system in the car and / or on the caravan is recommended.

Flat roads

The performances of the engine of this outfit are in general very good. Under all conditions on motorways it is possible to drive with 60 mph in the 5th gear. Faster is certainly not advisable! In that case the engine runs approximately 2200 rpm. In a headwind or for example on a crossover there is no need to downshift immediately.

Mountains

On most motorways inclines (1:20) it is barely possible to drive in the 5th gear with 50 mph up hill but maybe the engine is running better by somewhat more revs in the 4th gear). In the 4th gear the top speed is 71 mph (3174 rpm). Hill starts are possible on steep slopes up to 23%. While driving the engine has enough power to drive on every normal road.

Attention: This car can easily drive much faster with the caravan than is safe. So always keep an eye on your speed!

Reviews

The Ssangyong towing a Bailey Pegasus Palermo (1760) kg reviewed by Marcus:

Great car bought as a 2nd car to tow our Bailey which is quite a heavy van, the Dealership made it clear this car would tow upto two tonnes, well on paper yes it will but they dont tell you that your mileage will drop to mid 20s, I am an experienced caravan owner for just over 20 years. Towed the caravan very well , very stable, the car does roll a bit in bends we got caught out by the Beast from the East in 2018 and the AWD system was adequate in snow, I would not normally tow in snow but I had no option, the system does tend to spin the front wheels a few times before the AWD kicks in but it was reassuring when it did, the ride is overly firm on flat surfaces and the car does feel a bit jittery, my only gripes about the car when towing is MPG and poor ride the cabin is a bit cheap but it does have a proper spare tyre and Jack which most cars today can only dream of. I give it 4 out of 5 stars.
