Car reviews - SsangYong - Actyon Sports - Dual cab ute range


SsangYong revitalises the Actyon Sports ute with a redesigned face and new engine

30 Mar 2012

BEAUTY might only be skin deep, but the 2012 SsangYong Actyon Sports not only looks good but is also clever on the inside thanks to a new, more powerful and more torquey engine. The remainder of the Korean brand’s revitalised dual-cab package is mostly carried over from the previous Actyon Sports, and that raises the question: does the pretty face and added muscle give the newcomer the depth of character to take on the big guns in Australia’s booming ute market?

Actyon Sports

Released: April 2007
Ended: February 2012
Family Tree: Actyon Sports

THE Actyon Sports replaced the Musso Sports ute in 2007 and, as it was derived from the Actyon SUV wagon, came with car-like interior and unique coil-sprung rear suspension.

There was only one engine available from the start, the Xdi 2.0-litre turbo-diesel developing 104kW at 4000rpm and 310Nm at 1800rpm, matched with standard five-speed manual and optional four-speed automatic transmissions. In April 2008, a six-speed auto replaced the four-speed unit.

Like its predecessor, the ladder chassis-based Actyon Sports was available only in dual-cab configuration.
