New Euro IV Kyron Delivers On All Fronts With Lower Prices To Boot - (Australia)

September 20th, 2007

SsangYong has launched a new version of its Kyron SUV with cleaner styling, better performance and enhanced comfort as well as better pricing.

The new Euro IV Kyron is the first facelift for the mid-range SsangYong SUV since its launch in early 2006 and includes a number of major changes to deliver a significantly better SUV.

It features a raft of styling, trim and specification improvements, making it one of the best value mid-range SUVs on the market.

Key features of the new Euro IV Kyron include a revised Euro IV emission specification engine with revised engine mapping for improved driveability. As with its predecessor the Euro IV Kyron carries over independent front suspension, five link rear suspension and an electronically controlled part time four wheel drive system.

Exterior styling has been improved with new headlight and taillight clusters, a new bonnet, a new design grille and larger front air take with mesh guard, as well as a cleaner, more contemporary rear styling with a larger tailgate window.

The new interior design is more driver oriented with a new instrument cluster design, better night time illumination, a new steering wheel fitted with shift controls for the five speed T-Tronic automatic transmission, revised cloth seat trim, a new more elegant dash design with all black trim replacing dark grey on the previous model and a folding cover and light added to front sunvisors.

According to SsangYong Australia general manager sales and marketing, Brad Larkham, the new Euro IV Kyron is an evolution of the model and delivers a better design and styling as well as a swag of performance and safety benefits.

"Euro IV Kyron is a more focussed and sharper vehicle all round and I am sure will have a wider appeal to mid range SUV customers, particularly when you consider the added value it offers while retaining its already strong pricing levels," said Brad Larkham.

"The new styling reflects the latest trends and has boosted Kyron's appeal while performance, safety and comfort improvements exceed market expectations and position Euro IV Kyron as a standout in its class.

"The new model has better NVH thanks to a program of improvement and refinement by SsangYong engineers, delivering a quieter and smoother ride as well as better handling," he added.

A new alloy wheel design delivers a more contemporary appearance as well as being stronger and lighter than the previous model.

The new Euro IV Kyron is priced from $32,990 rrp for the two-litre turbo diesel manual, $35,990 rrp for the two-litre turbo diesel auto and $39,990 rrp for the top of the line 2.7 litre turbo diesel auto.

All new SsangYong vehicles sold in Australia come with the peace-of-mind afforded by a 3 year/100,000 kilometre factory warranty with SsangYong Assist 24/7 roadside assistance.

SsangYong is sold and serviced through a national network of more than 61 dealers across the country
