Space & practicality

How it copes with people and clutter

Up front, you get a sizeable storage area under the front armrest, big door pockets and a tray for odds and ends in front of the gearlever. Head and leg room are plentiful and there’s loads of width, so you won’t be clashing elbows with your neighbour.

The Musso’s rear seats also offer good space. Head room is good for all three passengers, while there’s a nice flat floor for the middle occupant and decent foot room for the other two. That said, tall adults in the outer seats might find their knees brushing the front seatbacks and the middle passenger has a slightly protruding backrest to contend with.

But the real appeal of a pick-up over a family SUV is, of course, the cavernous load bay. Like all of its rivals, the Musso will take a standard European cargo pallet between its wheel arch intrusions, with a maximum capacity of 1011 litres of cargo and a payload of 1050kg, although that's less than the Ford Ranger can manage.

Other practical touches include a 12V and 120W socket in the load bay for use with power tools and the such, and a 240V standard UK power outlet is an optional upgrade for the cab. There's a selection of hooks in the back to help strap down items, too, plus numerous other cargo accessories available as extras.
