The SsangYong Kyron is a large sport utility vehicle (SUV) built by the SsangYong Motor Company. It has a Mercedes-Benz diesel engine and was designed by MG's Ken Greenly. In 2007, the Kyron received a facelift. The name of the car is an inaccurate portmanteu made combining the pronounced sound of the mathematical symbol chi (//) and the word run, which is intended to mean "infinite run."

Both the XDi200 and XDi270 uses the 3rd-generation Common Rail technology.The direct injection system slightly boosts the power and fuel efficiency.

There is also 3.2 MPI engine available reaching up to 162 KW - 220 hp. The transmission on all models is Mercedes Benz 5G-Tronic model W722-6 5 speed.
