SsangYong Musso Long Tray Radio Review

LWB Musso has been launched in Korea as the Khan.

SsangYong cars came and pretty quickly dissapeared on the Australian market.  David Brown reports on their return.

SsangYong is a south Korea based car manufacturer now mainly owned by India interests.

They started in 1954. Between 1993 – 2011 they produced an SUV the Musso (which means rhinoceros in Korean) and they also gave that name to a ute they built for three years.

Both vehicles had Mercedes engines.

They failed in Australia, not helped by most models having a distinctive appearance.

Now there’re back with a new Musso XLV dual cab Ute boasting the segment’s longest tray, many features, and either a leaf spring rear suspension for hard work or the more comfortable coil spring suspension.

They should do better this time.
