The Russia-bound Actyon will be called the Nomad and will be assembled in Kazakhstan.

The updated version went on sale in some markets in the second part of 2013. The compact SUV received a complete revamp of the front fascia with the new look borrowed from the Actyon Sports pickup. Ssangyong decided to retain the car’s quirky design elements like the tapering roof line and a boxy rear fascia. reports that a 2.3-litre petrol engine developing 150 PS and 214 Nm of torque will be powering the Russia-bound Nomad. The engine is mated to a Mercedes-derived 5-speed automatic transmission. The top-end variant will be equipped with a torque on demand 4WD system.
