Ssangyong Actyon.jpg

Ssangyong Actyon. 2005 to date (prod. n/a). 5-door SUV, 4-door pick-up. F/A, 1998 cm³ diesel, 2295 cm³ petrol (I4 DOHC). Ssangyong does a fastback SUV years before BMW launched its X6, its name meant to be a combination of action and young. Targeted at urban users. Actyon Sports denoted the pick-up model, replacing the equivalent one in the Musso range. Manual discontinued for the home market in 2008. Not a class leader, but a good powertrain for the money. Chassis slightly lacking, with poor damping on the suspension and noticeable body roll. Fastback cancelled in 2011 in Korea, though exports continued with a facelifted model, while pick-up replaced by Korando Sports. Ssangyong Nomad fastback made from CKD kits from 2014 in Kazakhstan.
