The SsangYong Kyron is a compact 'soft-roader' SUV (although it is quite big for its class) built by SsangYong Motor Company. It has a 104 kW (139 hp)/310 N·m (230 lb·ft) Mercedes-Benz diesel engine and was designed by MG's Ken Greenly. It is presumed to share its body and/or platform with the upcoming Roewe SUV.[1]

In 2007, the Kyron received a facelift in an attempt to take on board the criticism of the previous version and improve the company's image.[2]

In the 2009 Dakar Rally, Isidre Esteve Pujol and team mate Eric Auge Medina came 81st in a Kyron 2.7DCI.[3]


The robust XDi270 diesel engine is available on the Kyron increasing the performance to 121 kW (162 hp)/340 N·m (250 lb·ft). Both the XDi200 and XDi270 uses the 3rd-generation Common Rail technology.The direct injection system slightly boosts the power and fuel efficiency. The new 3rd generation ECU is operating on 32-bit platform rather than the 16-bit found on the previous 2 generations of commonrail technology. There is also 3.2 MPI engine available reaching up to 162 KW - 220 hp. The transmission is Mercedes Benz T-tronic.

A hybrid model was also due to be released[4][5] using the same system as the C200 Eco, however plans were paused due to SsangYong's financial difficulties.
