Following the success of SsangYong’s Actyon WorkMate 6 speed manual, the Korean SUV and UTE manufacturer has now brought in the auto version of the 4x4 diesel ute, priced at just $30,426 +gst&orc and it now comes with Bluetooth too.


The Actyon WorkMate has been so popular for SsangYong NZ they sold out last month.  They are now back in stock and come with Bluetooth and the choice of six speed auto or manual.  The WorkMate has the same great styling, new E-xdi turbo diesel engine producing exceptional power and economy and comfortable cabin as the Actyon Sport, minus a few luxuries.

SsangYong NZ’s Managing Director Deon Cooper says the WorkMate has been flying out the door since it was introduced back in May.  “With the very high demand of the Actyon WorkMate, we were delighted to receive confirmation from Korea that we could introduce WorkMate Auto to the marketplace.  It is a six speed tiptronic automatic including summer and winter features and a smart carbon fibre gearstick and surround,” said Mr Cooper.

“The objective for WorkMate is to save our customers thousands on comparable models in the marketplace, giving them more to spend on loading the back of their WorkMate with an active kiwi lifestyle.  It’s great value and we are proud to be offering Korean quality at this price.”

The WorkMate Auto is priced at $30,426 + gst&orc and the WorkMate Manual is priced at $28,686 + gst&orc.

Features include driver and passenger airbags, ABS and four wheel disc brakes, air conditioning, CD and MP3 player with aux. port, Bluetooth, alarm and immobilizer, central locking and power operated windows and mirrors.  Plus when buying the WorkMate you get a FREE deck liner.

The WorkMate Auto is perfect as a company vehicle.  It’s super economical and will satisfy the strictest sustainability policy with carbon emissions from the engine the lowest in the 4x4 double cab class at 199gm/km.  It’s available in two stylish colours – Fine Silver and Grand White and the full range of SsangYong Factory Accessories can be purchased including towbars, covers, canopies, nudge bars and more.  The WorkMate comes with SsangYong’s standard three year / 100,000km warranty and 24hr roadside assistance for first three years of ownership.
