What Car? says...
Funny thing, fashion. Pickups used to be found on the farm, dragging machinery and hauling hay bales, but these days you’ll see them on the high street, too. What's more, canny professionals have worked out that pickups are really cheap to run as company cars, which probably explains why so many have been launched over the past couple of years.
The Ssangyong Musso is one of the least expensive 'double-cab' pickups on the market. Despite its attractive price, it gets a strong 2.2-litre diesel engine and either a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic gearbox. The Musso comes with a generous equipment list, too.
Of course, it isn’t plain sailing for the Musso; other manufacturers are also in on the action. Indeed, the Ford Ranger, Volkswagen Amarok, Nissan Navara and Toyota Hilux are all vying for your attention, too.
So, read on over the few pages to find out whether the Musso deserves more of it. We’ll tell you what it’s like to drive, what it’s like inside and how much it’ll cost you to buy and run. And don't forget to check our New Car Buying pages for the latest car and pickup deals.
