The SsangYong Musso is one of the cheapest double cab pick-ups you can buy. It's also cheap to run, with good fuel economy and a comprehensive five-year unlimited mileage warranty.Look past the unfamiliar badge and low-thrills interior, the Musso is a likeable and low-cost workhorse.
The Musso is based on the Korando Sports, but gets some important upgrades including a 178PS 2.2-litre diesel engine with the option of a six-speed automatic gearbox. The four-cylinder diesel provides lots of low-gear pull for towing and returns an official 40mpg.
The choice of bodystyles is limited. The Musso is only available as a double cab, but all versions will carry a one-tonne payload, while also towing an additional 3.5 tonnes when hooked up to a braked trailer. Four-wheel drive, with selectable driving modes, is standard across the range, which means the Musso will easily tow a heavy caravan or horsebox on a muddy farm track or wet field.
The redesigned cabin is comfortable though, with lots of head and leg room for four large adults. The interior also feels hardwearing and practical, with tough plastics covering the dashboard and lots of pockets and cubby storage throughout the interior.
Cheap to buy and run, the Musso is well-equipped as standard, which means you won't have to pay for any costly extras. Entry-level models get 18-inch alloy wheels and a full-size spare.
A heated windscreen, front fog lights and a load space liner are also included.
The improved Musso remains an appealing and affordable choice for a workhorse.
