Expert Rating

Summary


The SsangYong Rexton is a large seven-seat SUV, built in the traditional body-on-frame style. it shares its platform with the SsangYong Musso pick-up. The current version of the Rexton was launched in the second half of 2017.

The latest Rexton is a big improvement over previous models, although it has still only received modest scores from most of the UK automotive media. It has received praise for its towing ability, off-road performance and value for money, but criticism for its comfort and interior quality.

In Spring 2021, the Rexton was given a mid-life facelift, featuring a redesigned grille and new front and rear bumpers. Ssangyong also increased the Rexton’s engine power, and fitted a new gearbox.
