What is it?
The latest SsangYong Rexton is a completely new version of the brand’s traditional large SUV.
Seven seats, fully off-road capable 4×4, major interior upgrades.
The new SsangYong Rexton is a major advance that will surprise those familiar with the brand and should persuade others to check it out. It remains a traditional large SUV with selectable 4×4 transmission and body-on-frame construction – this makes it less assured on the road but capable of serious off-road ability and a heavyweight towing capacity.
Inside there is a great deal of space, especially in the enormous boot, but the major advance is in the quality of the fit and finish. This competes with rivals perceived to be much more upmarket.
The Rexton can’t compete with those rivals for the efficiency of its engine, but it does come well equipped and with an impressive standard safety package that includes autonomous emergency braking.
