The SsangYong Actyon is a series of compact crossover SUV that replaced the SsangYong Korando and SsangYong Musso Sports and is available as either Coupe Sports (Actyon) or Sports Utility Truck (Actyon Sports).

Both are available 2WD or 4WD systems and a third generation common rail VGT turbo diesel engine or a 2.3 litre overhead cam four-cylinder petrol engine.

Replacing the original Musso, the Actyon Sports has a wider track, increased load capacity and a more fuel efficient European designed engine.

The vehicle also comes with double wishbone front suspension and a five-link rear end as well as the availability of ESP (Electronic Stability Program) is a big offering from the South Korean manufacturer. Along with ESP, the Actyon comes with hill descent control as standard (on some models).

The European sourced diesel engine produces 104 kW (139 hp) of power at 4000 rpm and 310 N·m (229 lb·ft) of torque at 2700 rpm. The 2.3 litre petrol engine produces around 110 kW (148 hp) at 5500 rpm ad 214 N·m (158 lb·ft) at 4500 rpm.

In Australia, there is a special version of the Actyon Sports called the SsangYong Tradie. Available both in 4x2 and 4x4, but only with a 5-speed manual transmission and white exterior color. Optional equipment includes keyless entry, dual airbags, speed-sensitive central locking, engine immobilizer and alarm, electric windows, child safety door locks and tray liner.

Initially offered with a 4-speed automatic[2], the Actyon was later upgraded with a 6-speed automatic transmission sourced from Australian company Drivetrain Systems International.[3]

In 2008, Phoenix Motorcars in Ontario, California introduced the Phoenix SUV and Phoenix SUT for fleet managers. These 2 Electric-powered vehicles based on the design of the SsangYong Actyon SUV and SUT. The production to the public is possible by 2010.

In 2010, the Actyon received a facelift.[4]
