SsangYong Actyon

Let’s it; the curious styling doesn’t do Actyon Tradie ute many

Still, more important the looks and the name to the rural / sectors though is how it performs as a relative to the financial outlay, in the Tradie’s case is an attractive

Believe SsangYong New Zealand’s former MD in 2006, when the ute first hit our shores, and SsyangYong was to be tour-de-force by 2010. Brilliant derived through the tech agreement with Mercedes-Benz was to deliver Merc’s seven-speed and their latest diesel while the consistently striking workers would all be asked to tow the corporate line.

Nice vision, but much of promises have yet to come to Transmissions remain much the (in this case it’s a manual), the worker’s are still to dropping tools with and 2010 upgrades for the Tradie’s 2.0 diesel engine seems around the introduction of a variable turbocharger and not a lot else. Sure a welcome addition, but not one that it from class competitors, every new diesel ute incorporates turbo technology these and has for some time.

On the bright-side, it is oddly fun to drive. I say as it’s still undeniably with just 104kW the 2.0 diesel mill and 310Nm of performance is more sapling-yanking than stump-pulling. The engine out of puff prematurely – I it during torrential rain and I’d usually be very tentative in slippery conditions, the Actyon barely enough grunt to the rear end on bends, even only with provocation.

It’s also not the quietest unit going, the composure be a benefit, but really it’s all and no balls.

That said, ride and handling ability with a compliant suspension that eliminates bumps you’re taking the gravel on a country road and still good feedback to the driver. that smaller engine and weight over the front can be attributed to some of the Actyon’s but what seems a pretty rear end too.

Great for spirited cornering, but a decent payload in the back and it be an all together different story, a reason competitor utes your fillings when unladen, it’s cause designed to cope with cargo. The Actyon isn’t.

The loading capacities are lower the usual suspects and the 1275mm (L) also comes up shy, a grace though being the area’s width, measuring across, it’s impressively

Traditionally, not such an issue for a hack, but there’s a few safety missing here. Forget control, ABS brakes are a cost there’s a groin garrotting centre rear seatbelt and two airbags (dual front).

To be SsangYong isn’t the only ute to overlook these items at end of the market, but safety needs to be a if you use the vehicle on public roads at speed.

Can’t deny it’s fairly, but with Nissan a new cut-price RX Navara model is similarly low-spec’d but adds a bit grunt, a bigger tray, and ABS and most likely improved pricing, you’re probably to stick with what you
