SsangYong’s Musso has been voted “Best Pick-up” in the DieselCar Magazine’s Car of the Year 2021 Top 50 Awards for the third consecutive year.
The go-anywhere SsangYong Musso has already been voted as the “Best Payload” by WhatCar? Magazine and “Best Value” and “Best Individual Model” by 4x4 magazine, this year alone. All commentators have been repeatedly impressed by the Musso’s winning combination of build quality, space, refinement, comfort, excellent warranty and value for money.
DieselCar's journalist judging panel, remarked: “The Musso is a highly capable pick-up, with a towing capacity of up to 3,500kg and an impressive load bed. Not only that, but it costs from just under £27,000 in entry-level EX trim and gets the backing of a seven-year/150,000-mile warranty. An accomplished chassis and 2.2-litre 178bhp turbodiesel engine make it easy to drive, and it can return over 30mpg on a longer run. Clever features like rear cross traffic alerts also take some of the stress out of driving a pick-up in town, while three rear seats and a power socket in the load bed are handy too.”
In securing this latest award, Kevin Griffin, managing director of SsangYong Motors UK, said; “We’re delighted to win the “Best Pick-Up” in DieselCar Magazine’s Car of the Year 2021 Top 50 Awards for three years running. Musso is the pick-up market’s best kept secret but things are about the change – it has so much to offer in both its short and long bed variants. It disrupts the pick-up market and rightly so – it’s a tough, strong, value-for-money 4x4. Watch this space for the new, an even better, Musso launching this summer.”
Built on the same architecture as the new, flagship Rexton, which has also won multiple awards, Musso shares its body-on-frame construction to give an extremely strong vehicle that delivers excellent off-road driving performance and safety from its quad-frame and four-wheel-drive system. It’s an extremely competent multi-purpose truck with SsangYong values to the core - comprehensively equipped, an industry leading 7-year/ 150,000-mile warranty with a value for money package, plus a surprising level of interior refinement and great infotainment.
