CAR SOS presenter Fuzz Townshend has been made a UK brand ambassador for SsangYong.
The 54-year-old’s new role means he will be one of the first people to drive the South Korean car manufacturer’s all-new SsangYong Musso pick-up, which was launched last month.
‘I’m proud to become a brand ambassador for SsangYong in the UK and look forward to working with the team,’ he said.
‘I love the new Musso – it’s perfect for my lifestyle. I drive a lot of miles and live deep in the countryside, where a proper 4×4 pick-up is essential. Always tough and well engineered, SsangYong is a growing brand in the UK, and its products are very good now in terms of styling, comfort and equipment. This new vehicle is seriously impressive.’
SsangYong Motor UK managing director Nick Laird said: ‘This is an incredibly exciting time for our brand with fantastic new products like Rexton and new Musso. We are all really looking forward to working with Fuzz and think he will make an excellent and highly relevant ambassador for the brand.’
As well as presenting Car SOS, which is broadcast on National Geographic and repeated on Channel 4 and More4, Townshend is also a mechanic and former technical editor of Practical Classics.
