2012 SsangYong Actyon Sports dual-cab ute now on sale

Brett Davis

SsangYong has launched the all-new 2012 SsangYong Actyon Sports in Australia. The new model showcases a fresh modern design, while boasting ‘best in its class’ fuel economy.

Three variants makeup the range, spanning from the entry-level Tradie – available in 2WD and 4WD, to the SX – also available in 2WD and 4WD, and the top line SPR 4WD automatic.

All variants come with a 2.0-litre e-XDi200 diesel four-cylinder engine producing 114kW of power and 360Nm of torque. The 2WD Tradie and SX, when equipped with the six-speed manual transmission option, offer an average fuel consumption rating of 7.3L/100km/h.

(The 2WD automatic offers 7.6L/100km, while the manual 4WD models offer 7.4, and the automatic 4WD models offer 7.9.)

All 4WD models come with a part-time four-wheel drive system, selectable in the cabin. High and low range is also selectable for rugged off-road use.

As for the styling, you have to admit SsangYong has come a long way. Looking at the new front end you could easily mistake it for a modern Japanese vehicle. At the rear it does become a little awkward, but the upshot is a larger tray and overall dimensions than the previous model.

Standard features for the base model Tradie include a USB/Bluetooth compatible in-car entertainment system, a tray liner, and driving lights. Unfortunately, these variants miss out on stability control, however twin front airbags are part of the package.

Stepping up the variant-level ladder, the SX adds 16-inch alloy wheels, a leather steering wheel and gear knob, cruise control, and traction and stability control, while the sporty top-spec SPR 4WD automatic gets 18-inch alloy wheels, parking sensors, a leather interior, and heated front seats.
