The SsangYong Kyron is a compact 'soft-roader' SUV (although it is quite large for its class) built by SsangYong Motor Company. It has a 104 Kw (139 hp)/310 N·m (229 ft·lbf) diesel motor, with Mercedes-Benz motor parts. Although the motor is a great one in its own right, it does performance a vehicle weighing almost two tonnes which makes performance lethargic at best. It is one of the few compact 4wds to be able to actually go off road, though, with a separate chassis. Its looks was developed by Mg's Ken Greely.
In 2007, the reliable Xdi270 diesel motor is available on the SsangYong Kyron increasing the performance to 121 Kw (162 hp)/340 N·m (251 ft·lbf). Both the Xdi200 and Xdi270 uses the 3rd-generation Common Rail technology. The sophisticated direct injection system boosts performance and fuel economy, which lowers pollution and saves on fuel. 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.
All new for 2012, the fourth-generation Honda CR-V approaches a sophisticated and bold look-and-feel direction, provides multiple technology firsts for Honda and increases fuel efficiency on all models, American Honda Motor Co. , Inc. , announced. Long established as the benchmark car in its class in terms of class, refinement and popularity, the 2012 Honda CR-V is developed to continue to exceed buyer expectations for entry-level Suvs. Major improvements include enhanced car-like dashboard convenience, a smoother and quieter ride, and more high-tech features.
Significant reductions to the impact of noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) throughout the body and chassis enhance dashboard quietness and ride class compared to the previous model. To achieve the improvement, the 2012 Honda CR-V has greater body rigidity, lighter suspension elements, add-on noise insulation and more aerodynamic features including underbody covers and a back spoiler.
The 2012 Honda CR-V rides on a 103. 1-inch wheelbase and measures 178. 3 inches in length, 0. 8-inches shorter than the previous-generation Honda CR-V. At 71. 6 inches, overall width is the same as the previous Honda CR-V, and at 61. 6 inches front/61. 6 inches back, the track is also the same. But the most significant departure is in height: at 65. 1 inches tall, the 2012 Honda CR-V is a noticeable 1. 0-inch lower on AWD models and 1. 4 inches lower on FWD models. Although the aggregate visual effect is of a lower, sleeker Honda CR-V, even with these look dimension adjustments the new model is still roomier inside.
The size and proportion of the previous-generation Honda CR-V contributed to its success as the best-selling SUV in each calendar year from 2007 via 2010, as did refined look-and-feel features such as the multi-reflector halogen headlights, long full-body taillights, and look detailing that conveyed both ruggedness and sophistication.
