Hand it to Ssangyong, that Korean-Chinese carmaker intent on crashing the world's SUV party: At least the company refuses to stick to traditional design tropes in their minitrucks. In Frankfurt, the company introduced its new Kyron car-based SUV, which looks like any old SUV from afar, but from a-near, it's one part 1940s milk truck, one part 1930s streamlined passenger train, and one part M nster cheese wedge. The Gestalt of it, however, is much more coherent. Sort of. It's powered by a 2.0-liter diesel four-banger, which makes up in torque (229 ft/lbs.) for what few horses it has (139) under the hood. While the transmissions offered are yesterday's news (five-speed manual and five-speed automatic), the Kyron comes with such road-warrior e-toys as ABS, hill descent control, traction control, brake assist, and active rollover protection.
