Ssangyong Actyon Sports Truck Test Drive

The Actyon Sports SUT is a pick-up that stands out among it s and I m not just talking about its unorthodox looks which a shark with a gaping especially in white. But if you re willing to put it s aside and are interested to know about the features and capabilities of the Actyon, look after the

After you get over the brutal you ll immediately notice that the Actyon Sports has a lower height than most of it s peers to facilitate easier and exit into the passenger The cabin also seems and the bedliner is shorter because of The test car we drove was the Ssangyong Sports with the automatic but it was from an earlier batch and the level isn t really the same as the Actyon that you will be to buy in the showrooms.

But no worries, I will what s in the showroom cars and are not.

Ssangyong took a approach with the Ssangyong Sports truck and the Ssangyong SUV. Unlike Isuzu, and Toyota who have made from truck-platforms (Everest Ranger, Fortuner from etc) you think of the Ssangyong as more of a truck derived an SUV platform.

The nice interior is the car-like of all the trucks I ve driven, is pretty much all the modern except for the D-Max and Hilux. The seats and electrically adjustable and wing mirrors are a welcome The rear bench has three and is slanted like a passenger and rear legroom is plenty you have someone big-sized in front of you.

The footwell seems abit for me, but other smaller sized had no problems with it. I also the lack of a footrest for your foot in the automatic model is annoying, but Ssangyong says it can one locally for the production model. The of a lack of a foot rest and the footwell made my left leg a fidgety, it was like I didn t know where to put it.

The leather could also do with more padding, especially the bench.

The 2H-4H-4L selector is a in a series of vertically-aligned knobs on the of the center dashboard area. Our cars had an automatic digital air panel but the production cars have one of those usually manual aircond controls. You two cupholders neatly hidden a sliding cover, and a proper as well as another storage in the arm rest. There is also a holder and a ticket holder, as as small compartments integrated the door panel s arm rests. The is in a strange position on the left of the shifter instead of on the right.

might be a leftover from a designed for left-hand-drive.

The dash is a mix of plastic for the areas with controls and a nice soft which you can push in slightly you press your finger it one of those soft touch The large and luxurious-looking leather-wrapped wheel has audio controls.

The engine and gearbox combo is not the as the one in the Kyron, as the Kyron has a 5-speed while the Actyon only has a but the Actyon has a VGT turbine while the only has a normal turbocharger. The s engine was amazingly smooth and which was very surprising for a

Being of a smaller displacement of 2.0 litres, there was a noticable big in power in the first gear the engine is still running but right after 1,800rpm kicks in with strong you wouldn t want to be caught a maneuver like a U-turn at low when that happens the back would surely The speedometer would rise until 100km/h, but you d expect it to down after that but the just kept pushing the faster and faster until the started slowing down 160km/h.

The XDi 200 XVT engine is a 4-cylinder generation common rail injection turbodiesel with that puts out 141 PS at 4,000rpm, and of torque between 1,800rpm to There are tuning chips in the that easily push the 141 PS up to 168 PS. The is controlled by a 32-bit ECU and common injection pressure is 1,600

It is very quiet from the cabin around the down at driving speeds as the revs are very low thanks to the high you only notice a loud engine noise at higher nearer to the redline.

The 4-speed automatic gearbox had power, and winter modes. The you are in is shown on the little LCD panel at the of the triple-meter gauges they from 1 to 4. The only other car I ve seen that has this is the Mazda3 and Mazda6.

I think it is a gearbox somewhat, because if you put the to the metal from a stand the launch is somewhat slower if you ease on the pedal gradually. leads me to believe that in mode the gearbox actually to help make the launch as and comfortable as possible, something it enherited from it s Mercedes roots. It probably detected it probably would generate too torque, thus cut down the a little through the drive-by-wire

Top speed that we achieved was 190km/h on a normal straight in the Ladang Tihsllub introduced by Yap (the straight roads in area was amazing, I think the boys at Top Gear would be of us. They can have their 😉 ), but thanks to some downhill we got it up to 195km/h at about 4,250rpm, close to the redline of 4,500rpm. I say that the NVH in the cars we drove was amazing for diesel truck or SUV standards, for wind noise was all the way up to speeds of 170km/h where it getting abit noticable.

The steering wheel was a rack and setup and had good feel to it it t laggy or dampened or anything. was pretty much like an and road surface inconsistencies some bounciness but it wasn t harsh.

A coil spring instead of a leaf spring contributed much to it s SUV-like plus according to Steven Sim who a 4X4 shop and organized the off-road of the test drive, coil offer better articulation of the so offroad performance can be quite as long as you take the usual steps with proper mud raised ride height and shocks. Also responsible for it s and comfort are it s a 5-link rear at the rear and double wishbone at the front.

As for safety features, the ladder frame chassis has a layer contruction and the truck is reinforced to work as a safety for collisions. The steering wheel is collapsible, and the doors have impact beams. The doors automatically once the vehicle 50km/h, but also unlock in a collision.

There are driver and passenger SRS airbags, and the seatbelts pre-tensioners with load they tighten up at first in a and then the load limiter it progressively as the airbag deploys. present is four-wheel ABS, and are disc brakes all-round on all wheels.

The bedliner at the rear is than most trucks but is and deeper, and can carry a payload of up to although Ssangyong is developing an to bring it up to the regions of 1,100kg. will be three enhancements for the one is a sporty D-pillar for aesthetic which greatly enhances the of the truck and I recommend that get it, and the other two is still being which is a half-cover, and a full for the bedliner.

Other neat features a mobile illuminated ashtray, keyless entry, and an automatic system to save your from going flat if you leave your lights on you get out of the truck. Also, one thing I d a feature is it s low displacement of 2,000cc to it s 2.5 litre and 3.0 litre peers. For you d have to pay RM439.20 for the Actyon s tax compared to RM898.00 for the Mitsubishi s road tax per year.

It s also so lower than the 3.0 litre s steep RM1,878.10 s road tax

The locally assembled Ssangyong with automatic transmission for RM91,989.20 for private registration of insurance, which costs an RM2,627.90 for an insured value of and also a further RM300 for windscreen insurance. The aesthetic I mentioned goes for an extra and is highly recommended as I think it the side-profile look alot. The truck comes with seats, but real leather (none of those PVC stuff) an additional RM1,480.

A cheaper manual specced more as a will be offered later and only have one airbag, brakes and the rear, no electric etc.

In standard form, the Ssangyong Sports does not come an LSD differential, but Ssangyong says if the wants an LSD it will be fitted no extra cost. However the will be adviced to equip the with an LSD only if he takes the car off often and it is one of the primary purposes of the buying the vehicle. This is if the Actyon Sports spends of it s mileage on paved roads, the LSD wears out prematurely something to do the grip on paved roads too much and not allowing enough or something, causing wind-up.

I 4X4 guys should understand better.

I think it s very as a lifestyle vehicle just pop the or half cover on the back and it as a jacked up sedan that has diesel fuel economy and a ride height to tackle floods that are happening often lately. You just to get over the different styling the same problem some with the Honda City.
