What Van? highly commends Kyron C-S

11th December 2008 Print
The SsangYong Kyron C-S light commercial has been ‘highly commended’ in this year’s What Van? Magazine Awards. The Kyron was just pipped in the 4x4 van category by the Mitsubishi Outlander.

The What Van? citation said: Although it operates in a niche market, Mitsubishi’s load shifter does not lack competitors. Despite its still relatively-unfamiliar name, one potentially strong challenger is SsangYong’s Kyron C-S 4x4. It’s well-put-together, well-equipped and offers more than sufficient performance plus a decent gearchange. Again it’s a five-door and features a 2.4m3 cargo box. Most importantly given the present economic situation, it’s remarkably good value for money. As a consequence we’re happy to hand it our Highly Commended prize.

SsangYong marketing director Nigel Unwin said: “We’re delighted that What Van? has recognised the Kyron C-S in this way, but feel duty bound to point out that the Kyron has a bigger load space and higher towing capacity. Oh, and it’s about £3,000 cheaper than the Outlander, and these days, that’s likely to be the deciding factor.”
