Ssangyong says the all-new Actyon five door and its brother the Actyon Sports dual cab ute will lead the charge for SsangYong this year. SsangYong has started prices from $29,990 for the 4x4 Actyon petrol and the 4x2 Actyon Sports Ute diesel.
Both models will offer SsangYong's third generation common rail Variable Geometry Turbo (VGT) diesel engine with 104kW of power and 310 Nm of torque.

"It's certainly not a typically boxy 4WD and will stand out for all the right reasons," said Brad Larkham.
The ESP system which is integrated with all of the Actyon's systems including the electronically controlled four wheel drive is only offered on the high spec Limited version of the Actyon. Some variants also offer hill descent control.
