The tested model of Ssangyong Actyon Sports Ute was introduced in Australia during 2008.

The Actyon Sports Ute scored 7.01 out of 16 in the offset crash test. The passenger compartment had excessive floor deformation and pedal intrusion. Protection from serious leg injury was poor for the driver. Chest protection was marginal.

The vehicle was awarded a default score of 16 out of 16 in the side impact crash test. However, the low offset score limited the overall rating to 3 stars and 24.49 points (the maximum points available for a 3 star rating).


Safety Feature Summary

The safety feature information below is subject to change without notice. For up to date safety feature specifications for all variants, please see the safety feature table to the right or contact the manufacturer.

Dual front airbags are standard equipment. Antilock brakes (ABS) are available on some variants. An advanced seat belt reminder is fitted to the driver seat.

Pretensioners are fitted to the front seat belts to reduce slack in the event of a crash. A two point seat belt is fitted to the centre rear seat. This provides inferior protection compared with a three point seat belt.

The side impact test normally used by ANCAP simulates a small car striking the driver's door of the vehicle under test. It is based on a regulation test but the regulation does not apply to vehicles with a high seat height like the Actyon. Experience shows that such vehicles can be expected to perform well in this test so ANCAP has decided to award full score for these vehicles instead of conducting a crash test.
