The updated Actyon (formerly known as Korando) sports fresh exterior styling, a more premium interior and improved refinement on the go.

This could be a little confusing. The car you see is essentially the Ssangyong Korando, which received a complete makeover last year and became the first monocoque vehicle for the Korean carmaker.

This time round, the compact SUV gets another nip and tuck and a brand new identity as Ssangyong prepares to ramp up its fight against the bevy of other compact SUVs like the Hyundai Tucson, the Kia Sportage and many others.

Up close and Personal

The Actyon retains the overall shape of the outgoing model. Standing at 4,410mm x 1,830mm x 1,710mm (L x W x H), the car is only a slight 35mm taller than before.

The front end looks sharper now, thanks to a new slim honeycomb black grille, redesigned headlights and taillights that look more sophisticated than before, as well as a lower and wider air intake.

Step inside the car and you'll realise the interior has been completely redesigned. A large central infotainment screen, new switchgear, upgraded plastics, wood trimming and leather upholstery find their way into the cabin, lending a hint of luxury that is a huge leap from its predecessor.

The quality of fit and finish is largely commendable and the ambience is improved by the various soft-touch contact points that have been added with this facelift.

There is good practicality inside the Actyon, too, with plenty of useful storage space beyond the usual array of cup holders in the console or door pockets.

Three adults sit comfortably behind and at 486 litres, the cargo capacity is more than enough for the luggage and groceries. However, Ssangyong could have done with a lower loading sill for better convenience.
