Report – Sales of the updated Ssangyong Actyon begin
Posted on: Nov 13, 2013 - 10:41am IST
Press shots of the Ssangyong Actyon facelift are now available on the internet, with car sales portals in countries like Ukraine listing the updated variants.
We’re not able to determine exactly when the company had launched the product, and the Actyon section of Ssangyong’s official website appears to be under construction. Ssangyong does not sell the Actyon in the Korean market, and manufactures it only for exports.
Visually, the Actyon facelift stays the same in profile, but undergoes a thorough makeover for its front and rear fascias using new headlights, bumpers, grille, stoplight and foglamps.
From what we know the Actyon facelift is powered by a 2.0-liter diesel engine producing 128 hp and 310 Nm of torque fitted with a particulate filter, and a 2.3-liter petrol engine producing 150 hp and 214 Nm of torque. Both engines are paired to a Mercedes Benz 5-speed automatic transmission, with top-end variants of both engine options receiving a part-time electronic 4WD system.
Some of the Actyon’s other features are a Double-wishbone front and 5-link rear suspension, ABS with EBD, dual front airbags, “triple-layer” frame construction, rear parking sensors, electrochromatic rear view mirror, auto door locking, 8-way adjustable driver seat and ISO-FIX points.
