Designers have tried their best, following the current trends, they created a stylish car. The beveled line of the bonnet and the highly slanted optics bring in an oriental accent. A step on the lower edge of the glass in front of the middle pillar hides the transition from a licked front to a massive rear part, and thanks to the lighting unit in the form of a continuous strip along the ends of the rear wings and the fifth door, it seems that the car is much wider than it is tall. Small for an SUV ground clearance gives the appearance of the car stability and speed.

Due to the low thresholds of landing in the car is very easy. The driver's seat has two standard adjustments. Well-developed lateral support of the back allows you to comfortably accommodate it. The steering column is adjustable tilt. The dashboard is well overlooked and very informative. In the center there is a large speedometer, to the right of it is a tachometer, to the left - two indicators: fuel level and coolant temperature. At the bottom of the panel - an indicator board. On the "beard" is the control panel for air conditioning, heater and radio cassette called SsangYong. A large distance to the front seats and a low tunnel will allow three passengers, sitting behind, to stretch their legs and settle down with a maximum of amenities.

Due to the high seating position of the driver and the sloping front end, Musso has excellent front visibility, and since the spare wheel does not hang on the rear door, the situation on the road can be perfectly controlled with the help of the inside and side mirrors.

The engine range consists of two diesel engines (2.9 l / 99 hp and 4-cylinder 2.3 l / 80 hp) and one gasoline 6-cylinder unit of 3.2 l / 220 hp .

Engines with a volume of 2.9 and 3.2 liters are combined with a 5-speed manual gearbox or with a 4-speed automatic from Mercedes-Benz, and 2.3 liters - only with a manual transmission.

2019 SsangYong Musso Review

Unfortunately, Musso has only one downshift, and there are no locks at all.

In 1998, Ssang Yong, which suffered from difficult times, joined Daewoo Corporation, and Musso decided to save it after just restyling. The British were invited to update - Briton Design Lab.

The next upgrade came in 2001. During this time, the exterior and lighting fixtures were changed several times, the block-lights from the usual rectangular became modern oval-slanting. The drag coefficient of the Cx was lowered to 0.42, which reduced fuel consumption and reduced noise at high speeds.

Since 2002, Musso Sports has been producing a double cab with a Musso Sports cab (in Korea - SUT).

In essence, Musso Sports is a real one, you can say a classic SUV with a powerful frame, a multiplier, a plug-in front axle and a large suspension travel. Compared to the "ordinary" Musso, the pickup was made longer, increasing the wheelbase by 125 mm and the overall length by 300 mm. The angle of the congress has become less - 24 degrees, the angle of entry has remained unchanged and is 34 degrees, and the ground clearance is also -195 mm.

Front-wheel drive can be connected on the go, up to a speed of 40 km / h by switching the automatic transmission to neutral. Downshift can also be activated in motion, but the speed should not exceed 10 km / h. Modes of the transfer case are set using a swinging button located on the front panel, which has three positions - 2H, 4H, and 4L. The gear ratio down gear transfer case is large enough for it to slowly and confidently move off-road.

The exterior of the Ssang Yong Musso Sports pickup is distinguished by a flat face, a long tail, wings leaned to the lean body, and sparkling slanted headlights.

In Russia, the pickup comes with a licensed 2.9 liter turbodiesel and 4-speed automatic transmission, developed by Mercedes-Benz.

Practicality, comfort and safety Musso Sports will pleasantly surprise the driver and passengers. The spacious interior is thought out to the smallest detail, and the special design of the trunk simplifies the process of loading and unloading luggage. This car easily takes on board 550 kg of cargo.

Standard equipment of all versions includes ABS, driver's airbag, air conditioning, central locking and wood trim. The list of options is small: it includes climate control, 16-inch alloy wheels and leather.

Functional and stylish Musso Sports is created for active people. This all-wheel drive pickup is versatile and will perfectly show itself in any situation.
