Ssangyong Musso Review Australia

 

Going into the market, you will get numerous affordable dual-cab utes options other than the usual HiLux or Ranger. One such dual-cab ute is the SsangYong Musso. This is the only ute that is made in Korea.  Although it has a strange name and a bit of an odd look, yet it has built a strong image among Aussie motorists. It is believed that this ute is an underrated achiever. The model that we are going to review is a short-tub version, i.e., it is a little shorter than the average ute. In case you are looking for an affordable and refined light-duty ute that has a humble origin, then you should keep reading.

 

Ssangyong Musso engine:

The Ssangyong Musso ultimate comes with a 2.2-litre turbo-diesel four-cylinder engine. This engine produces 133kW of peak power at 4000rpm and 400 Nm of torque at a claimed 1400rpm.

 

The Ssangyong Musso Ultimate comes mated to a six-speed automatic transmission sourced from Aisin. It comes with a selectable 4×4 range with automatic locking mode. The ultimate has an equal-class-leading 3.5-tonne braked towing capacity. The tank stores almost 75L of diesel. The  Ssangyong Musso has 8.6 litres per 100km on combined-cycle fuel economy. 

 

Ssangyong Musso interior:

Inside the Ssangyong Musso, you will get a sophisticated cabin. It incorporates a good-quality steering wheel and seat trims. They both offer many adjustment options. The seats also offer ventilation that makes them perfect for summers. 

 

There is a large LCD screen on the analog gauges of the drive. This LCD incorporates a compass, active safety controls,  many speedo designs, and trip data as well. This makes it a bit fancier than normal utes.  The lower dash, armrest, and console cover have padded surfaces. It has clan trims with faux carbon fibre inlays, grey stitches, and knurled knobs and dials. There is plenty of storage space in Ssangyong.

 

For storage, it has the following features:

 2L-bottle-friendly door bins

 Big glovebox

 Cupholders 

 Rooftop sunglasses cubby

 Deep centre console

 

It has a centre screen that is framed by a dust-prone glossy black trim. Although there are not many features yet, phone mirroring allows you to look over this flaw, and in addition, the overhead-view camera resolution is also good. You will get ample headroom and shoulder space on the back seats on the rear side. These seats are more than enough for two tall adults.

 

On the rear side, you will get the following features :

 Door bins

 Pull-down armrest 

 Cupholders

 Rear air vents 

 Grab handles on the roof

 Grab handles on the B-pillar

 

The Ssangyong Musso has lower knee- and shin-space than its competitors. The other thing that is unique about this car is the design of the back doors. The design is a bit unusual, and this is because the door directly ends next to the tub's attachment point. You will also get storage space below the backbench. The seatbacks can be lower with the help of leavers that reveal top-top-tether points, tire-change tools, and jack as well.

 

Specs:

Coming towards the specs of the Ssangyong Musso, with the ELX, you will get a solid list of some of the amazing features like:

 18-inch silver alloy wheels

 Parking sensors at each end

 LED daytime running lights, fog lights

 Button start

 A 7.0-inch trip computer

 Leather steering wheel

 Cruise control

 8.0-inch touchscreen

 Apple CarPlay

 Android Auto

 Reversing camera

 

The ultimate grade comes over it and adds on some extremely good features like the:

 Black alloy wheels

 A tire-pressure monitoring system

 Front seats that are both heated and cooled

 Synthetic leather seat trim

 HID headlights

 An auto-dimming rear-view mirror

 A 360-degree parking camera.

 

In addition, you will also get a touch-sensing door handle for unlocking or locking purposes.

 

Ssangyong Musso safety:

Although the Ssangyong Musso has not yet gone under the crash-tested by ANCAP, yet it is a safe ride as it ticks many safety feature boxes. We can not estimate how good it can hold upon impact, but with this ride, you will get the following safety feature: 

 Two front airbags

 Front thorax airbags

 Side head-protecting curtain airbags (these cover both seat rows)

 Automatic emergency braking  AEB

 Blind-spot monitoring

 Rear cross-traffic alert

 Front-vehicle start alert

 Automated high-beam

 Audible lane-departure alert.

 

Disappointingly,  with the Ssangyong Musso, you would not be getting active-steering lane assist or adaptive radar-guided cruise control. However, the competitors of the Musso have these safety features. 

 

Ssangyong Musso price:

The 4×4 dual-cab Musso kicks off at $33,990 drive-away for the base ELX, climbing to $40,290 on the road for the Ultimate driven here. 

 

Pros:

 The Musso is a quiet and refined version of the ute for work

 It has a high quality and well-equipped interior cabin

 The seven-year warranty is one of its most likable perks

 It has capped servicing

 

Cons:

 The SWB has only 790kg of payload

 It has no ANCAP score, and also it has no rear lap belt

 There are pressing questions around the brand's finances

 

The final verdict!

Ssangyong Musso comes as a surprise packet. It is a good option for people who love fantastic practicality and style. People who want to carry and travel with heavy or oversized things should go for the Ssangyong's ELX in XLV long-wheelbase form. If you are one of those suburban-type ute buyers who like to have something that is macho and, at the same time, modern, then the top pick for you will be the Ssangyong Musso's Ultimate. It performs its tasks really well and is a super quiet, comfortable, well-equipped, and nicely put-together ride that will make your life super easy! In addition, it also comes with a sharp price. If you can ignore the lack of badge cred, Ssangyong Musso Ultimate is honestly worth considering.
