SsangYong Actyon line-up is one of the most successful ventures of the South Korean automobile company SsangYong Motors, though not a household name the company plans on going big with the launch of this pick-up. It was launched in two body types – a wagon (SsangYong Actyon) and Sports Utility Truck (SsangYong Actyon Sports).
