SsangYong Musso Car Review

NRMA Motoring Date: 22 1996

Mercedes Benz has its stamp of approval on one of the latest into the already well for 4WD recreational market, the SsangYong from South Korea.

here in Australia by Mercedes Australia through its dealer the Musso is leaning heavily on its with Benz and that it is with petrol and diesel plus an automatic transmission by Benz and assembled under by the SsangYong Motor Co.

Although is not a household name in Australia, the has been operating in Korea as a 4WD and vehicle manufacturer for over years with the first plus years under the of Ha Dong Hwan Motor.

The equipment levels available in the are essentially determined by the choice of or petrol engine. Once decision is made the list of features tends to follow The diesel version of the Musso is at $40,900 whilst our petrol vehicle is competitively priced at

The Musso is quite clearly at the mid four wheel segment of the and Pajero, Prado, Jeep and are clearly in its sights.

Along of features is standard on the Musso a short list of extras as alloy wheels, cruise remote keyless entry and are also available, although list does not include air

The most talked about and attractive feature of the Musso is its designed engines. Although by SsangYong, the 3.2 litre six cylinder and 2.9 litre five cylinder engines are essentially the same as used by Benz in the E320 and the G-wagon.

Although claiming to be the powerful four-wheel drive in its the Musso really has to be driven some enthusiasm to appreciate the available. The petrol engine in our vehicle performed very is spite of the extent of engine evident when full is employed. The Musso is at its best on the highway with good characteristics at touring speeds.

The 4 speed automatic transmission is Benz, whereas the 5 speed box is a Borg Warner unit. The changes are typical of the Benz having a tendency to flare on up shifts.

The ride provided by the bars on double wishbones at the and coil springs and multi-links at the is quite acceptable on the bitumen However, it is inclined to be little on loose surfaces requiring the full attention.

Its off-road ability would be as average only, with limitations on wheel travel and angle, and the gear selector is not conducive to quick selection drive and reverse in bog mode. the Musso is a full-time four-wheel low range can only be selected stationary and in neutral.

Seating is comfortable front and rear adequate head and leg room for four adults. A fifth in the centre rear however, is for all but short trips. I did find the seat lumbar support a harsh on the highest setting.

General storage and luggage was sufficient for this size

Body styling of the Musso attracts or distracts depending on personal likes and dislikes. It has a unique style and identity of its own both positive and negative Quality of finish however, is of high standard.

Service are set at 10,000 km and the three year or warranty is supported by SsangYong’s year free roadside scheme. Servicing is assured there is a Benz dealer.

The Musso is not a vehicle that appeal to all four-wheel drivers and it has room for improvement to raise it to the of its major competitors.

It does however provide comfortable touring attributes and level off-road performance.
