Overview

Less shocking, cleaner-burning Kyron SUV emerges from SsangYong after just 18 months

By CHRIS HARRIS

THE Kyron was released just 18 months ago but SsangYong is already releasing an update model – partly to signal the necessary changes to pass tightened Euro IV emissions requirements, but also to address criticisms of styling. The previous Kyron did not sell well and Ssangyong hopes a more conservative look and lower price will spark more interest in a vehicle that currently owns just 0.5 percent of one of the biggest segments of the new vehicle market. Kyron is good value but it lacks a strong brand name in a market spoiled for choice. It also sells alongside two other similar SsangYong SUVs (Actyon and Rexton) that results in the lack of size, price and specification demarcation that would allow Kyron a clear, focused run at sales.
Model release date: 1 October 2007 to 1 June 2012

Previous model

SsangYong Kyron

Released: Feb 2006
Ended: Sep 2007
Family Tree: Kyron

The Kyron arrived in March 2007 as a model below the Rexton in the SsangYong range. It shared the 121kW/340Nm 2.7-litre turbo-diesel and 162kW/256Nm 3.2-litre petrol engines and their drivetrains with Rexton, but came with the unique option of a 104kW/310Nm 2.0-litre turbo-diesel (until the same engine appeared in Actyon and Actyon Sport earlier this year). The Kyron’s underpinnings share similarities with other Ssangyongs but, like its body, it is an unique proposition. Prices ranged from $34,490 for the 2.0-litre and topped out at $43,990 for the 3.2-litre petrol six. All except the 3.2-litre had a five-speed manual or five-speed auto option, the 3.2 being five-speed auto only.
