The base price of the pickup model is ¥777,000 (approximately $8,450 USD), with the van starting at ¥1,060,500 (approximately $11,500 USD) as of December 2008. The base model is mid-engine, rear drive. Four-wheel drive is available as an option on all vans, and all but one model of pickup truck, making the Acty one of a handful of mid-engine, AWD vehicles that are not designed as sports cars.
The Acty is powered by a 12-valve straight-3 gasoline engine making 34kW (45.5hp) at 5500rpm and 60Nm (37ft·lb) at 5000rpm.
As a bit of an oddity, the Acty was sold during 1982 in Australia, but was made unavailable inside of Sydney due to concerns by Honda that the vehicle was under-powered for the hilly terrain.
