SsangYong has announced details of pricing and specification for its fourth generation Rexton 4×4. The latest model is based on the LIV-2 concept which SsangYong showed at the Paris motor show in September last year.
Powered by a 2.2-litre turbo diesel engine producing 181hp and 420Nm of torque, the Rexton has a 3.5-tonne towing capability and a kerb weight between 2,095 and 2,333kg. The four-wheel drive can be paired with either a six-speed manual or seven-speed Mercedes-Benz automatic transmission.
An updated front grille brings the fourth generation model’s look in line with that of the new Tivoli. Customers can opt for 17, 18 or 20-inch alloy wheels and specify either a five or seven-seat model.
The Rexton’s infotainment system features Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, DAB radio and a 9.2-inch HD screen.
New safety technology includes forward collision warning, autonomous emergency braking, lane departure warning, high beam assistance and traffic sign recognition.
The Rexton goes on sale in October from £27,500 and comes with a five-year limitless mileage warranty.
