SsangYong’s larger Than Life Rexton is Massive SUV Bargain of The Year
Auto News
These days getting a large SUV which is around the same size of a Range Rover for under £30k is rare, but not anymore because SsangYong has just revealed the UK pricing and spec for the new 2017 Rexton. And as far as SUV’s go it doesn’t look too bad, so why should you choose a Rexton over a Ranger Rover? Let’s just say the Rexton is a car for people who simply can’t’ afford the £80k asking price a 2017 Range Rover demands. Indeed the Rexton’s price point undercuts the Land Rover Discovery Sport, and what’s even more interesting is that the Rexton’s trim levels allow for optional quilted Nappa leather seats, a Discovery Sport can’t match that. SsangYong-Rexton-Side-Elevation For the UK market, the second Rexton will be powered by a 2.2 litre turbo diesel engine delivering a maximum power of 181PS and maximum torque of 420Nm, with a 6-speed manual or 7-speed auto transmission sourced from Mercedes-Benz. The Rexton will feature a 4-wheel drive system, SsangYong claim that it offers better efficiency and greater fuel economy because the “part time” 4×4 system means power is delivered permanently to the rear wheels. SsangYong-Rexton-Qulited-Interior Front wheel drive can be selected electronically as required with high ratio, and low ratio and it also features hill start assist and hill descent control. PSsangYong claim that weight distribution is balanced to improved ride and handling which are bolstered by front and 10-link independent suspension at the rear. SsangYong-Rexton-Standard-Interior SsangYong have worked hard to produce a stiffer body and improved aerodynamics are designed to reduce wind noise. Hydraulic engine mounts, improved cabin sealing and lower road and tyre noise reduce noise and vibrations. SsangYong-Rexton-Rear-View SsangYong follows industry trends by offering  a 8.0” screen or in HD on a wide 9.2” infotainment system which includes DAB radio, Apple CarPlay and Google Android Auto for device mirroring, a rear view reversing camera, these are dependent on trim. A digital instrument binnacle is also offered as an option. The second generation Rexton will go on sale in the UK around October and will be offered in three trim levels Rexton EX, ELX and the top spec Ultimate which will cost £37k.  SsangYong-Rexton-Motion-Dailycarblog
