Geneva Motor Show: SsangYong Actyon Sports

Updated: 

SsangYong has announced another vehicle for its already large portfolio. The Actyon Sports is a production-ready pick up designed for active, outdoor-y types. Presumably a budget Bear Grylls.

The idea behind the Actyon Sports is that it's the perfect vehicle for whatever you want to do, be it go off-roading, use it as a motorway beater or commute in the city.
It's powered by a 153bhp 2.0-litre e-xDI diesel engine and manages 38mpg on the combined cycle. However, it's not spectacularly good for the ground you'll be tramping it over – depending on which drive and gearbox set up you chose (2WD/4WD, manual/auto) it emits anything from 196g/km – 212g/km CO2.

It's a good looking thing and, judging by the on-road ability of the current Korando, it probably won't be all that bad to drive.

Over here it'll be called Korando Sports, presumably because if UK buyers have to try and remember another oddly spelt name they might explode.
