SsangYong Actyon SUV Facelift Revealed


SsangYong Actyon gets a makeover inside and out with enhanced driving refinement for 2014. Externally, the front receives an all-new treatment – a slimmed down, black mesh radiator grille, more contemporary headlights and a wider, low level air intake are the principal enhancements. The new headlight units now comprise projection lamps and LED lights for increased visibility and safety, surrounded by a stylish black and aluminium bezel. Further illumination is provided with round fog lamps set discreetly within the lower bumper.

At the rear, the design changes are focused on enhanced style with detail improvements such as the rear light cluster, which now includes LED lights for improved visibility. There is also a new 18-inch wheel design.


The interior of the Actyon facelift has also been given a significant re-design, and now combines an attractive and comfortable ambiance for the driver and passengers alike. There is a completely redesigned dashboard featuring soft-touch materials for a greater sense of luxury, complemented by natural matt wood grain insets, and abundant storage space that includes enlarged cup holders, a mobile phone tray and flip-down sunglasses tray.

The new SsangYong Actyon is powered by a modern yet well-proven 2.0-litre petrol engine mated to a 6-speed gearbox.


Great advances in reducing NVH (noise, vibration & harshness) have been made to this new Actyon facelift, with particular attention focused on its engine mountings. Stronger, reinforced mounting brackets are used which effectively reduce engine noise levels by up to 9.3%. SsangYong Actyon is fitted with Macpherson struts to the front and multi-link suspension to the rear to provide excellent ride comfort, and the three point mountings to the rear axle effectively minimise noise and vibration. New rubber bushes have been fitted to the car’s reinforced sub frames, further helping to minimise intrusive vibration and noise from the road surface and engine.

Under normal driving conditions, 100 per cent of the engine’s torque is delivered to the front wheels so that the car runs with optimised fuel efficiency. On wet or slippery roads or when driving on wet off-road conditions, power is distributed to both the front and rear wheels to ensure a safe, stable and dependable drive. The technology also works perfectly to give a smooth and safe departure when driving away from a standstill on a steep slope, while a lock mode distributes power equally between the front and rear wheels at speeds below 25mph to optimise traction.

With a ground clearance of 180mm, an approach angle of 22.8 degrees, 28.2 degree departure angle and a ramp angle of 18.5 degrees, the new Actyon is as at home off-road as it is on the road, and a highly capable off-roader.

In conjunction with the standard Electronic Stability Program (ESP) with emergency brake assist and four-channel Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), the four-wheel drive system provides the best possible grip and control whatever the conditions. Active Roll-over Protection (ARP) is also included.


The new SsangYong Actyon offers the practicality and convenience of an SUV and the creature comforts of a saloon car. Its generous proportions and wide interior space make this the perfect vehicle for both everyday use and leisure activities. In the rear, there’s sufficient shoulder room for three adults to travel in complete comfort. The seat back – which splits 60:40 – can be reclined up to 17.5 degrees, while the flat floor and generous legroom make it ideal for long journeys. Lift the tailgate and you’ll find one of the largest load areas in this SUV sector (486 litres with the seats up and 1,312 litres when folded). The rear seats fold completely flat, while there’s also an under-floor tray for storing valuables out of sight.

The company has sold 130,000 units of the model, which was launched in 2010 for the global market, and its annual sales volume is expected to rise to 80,000. To establish a solid foothold in key markets, SsangYong has put this model on sale through 1,300 global distributors.

This SsangYong Actyon SUV comes with a 3-years or 100,000 kilometres factory backed warranty.
