Korean adds new models


SsangYong also revealed the prices for the new Actyon coupe compact sport utility five-door wagon and the Actyon Sports dual-cab ute.

The Actyon will come in two- and four-wheel-drive with a 2.3-litre petrol and a two-litre turbo diesel.

The 4 x 2 petrol, will start at $26,990 rising to $33,990 for the diesel 4 x 4.

More details will be provided at the launch next month.

The Actyon Sport ute comes with a two-litre turbo diesel engine in 4 x 2 for $29,990 $31,990 for the 4 x 4 and $33,990 for the "limited" top-of-the range 4 x 4 model.

SsangYong Australia general manager of sales and marketing, Brad Larkham, said they called the Actyon a "Coupe Sport Utility" because of its sweeping styling and coupe-like appearance.

However, the trade-off for the coupe styling of the compact SUV is that there is little room in the back for luggage.

It is SsangYong's first compact all-wheel-drive featuring a two-litre turbo diesel engine.

The European technology common-rail VGT turbo diesel produces 104kW of power and 310Nm of torque offering 7.8 litres per 100km economy for the manual and 8.5 for the auto.

The 2.3 litre petrol engine produces 110kW and 214Nm and 11.3L/100km for the manual and 11.9 for the auto.

Handling is enhanced by double wishbone front suspension and a five-link rear end.

An Electronic Stability Program is standard on some models.

The ESP system is the latest fifth-generation multi-function unit which is integrated with all of the Actyon's systems including the electronically controlled four-wheel-drive.

Hill descent control is fitted as standard on some models.

The new Actyon Sports dual cab utility replaces the Musso Sports which will remain as an entry level crew cab for some time.

The Actyon Sports also will be available with the two-litre diesel engine and either two- or four-wheel-drive.

The new dual cab ute has a wider track and cabin as well as a 20 per cent larger poly lined load tray than the Musso.

It also has coil springs all round, double wishbone suspension at the front with a five-link rear end, unlike many utes, which use leaf springs at the rear.

Actyon Sports has a load capacity of just over 800kg while it can tow up to 750kg unbraked and up to 2.3 tonnes braked.
