LAUNCHED IN NEPAL: ALL NEW SSANGYONG REXTONPosted On: December 13, 2017 By : supervisor
IMS Motors, the sole authorized distributor of SsangYong Motors for Nepal, has launched the all-new SsangYong Rexton in the Nepalese market. The new Rexton comes with the choice of 6-speed manual and a 7-speed automatic transmission for Rs 11,199,999 and Rs 11,999,000 respectively. The new Rexton also comes with a service warranty of 3 years upto 60,000 kms.
With a front mounted engine, rear-wheel drive and 4×4, SsangYong believes the new Rexton will be a class-leading contender. It will offer excellent driving characteristics on and off-road, balanced weight distribution, great towing capability and good NVH performance.
The Rexton powertrain employs a 2.2 litre turbo diesel engine and Mercedes-Benz 7-speed automatic transmission. This highly efficient and quiet e-XDi220 engine delivers progressive acceleration from a standing start, and a strong low end torque typical of SsangYong engines. The Mercedes-Benz 7-speed automatic transmission, renowned for its smooth performance and durability also responds quickly for more dynamic driving.
The car’s 4-wheel drive system draws on SsangYong’s years of experience in 4WD technology. With rear wheel drive under normal driving conditions for comfort and fuel efficiency, there is also 4WD with high/low ratios for when on and off-road conditions demand. A combination of double wishbone suspension at the front and multi-link independent suspension at the rear ensures a high level of driving stability.
The Rexton will be one of the safest cars in its class, with nine airbags including knee-airbag for the driver and side-airbags in the rear. Constructed using a quad-frame body structure using 1.5Gpa-grade high-strength steel – a world first, it also features 63% advanced high strength steel to create greatly improved body strength while reducing weight.
An advanced infotainment system is installed in the car, and includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto with device mirroring, with everything including navigation displayed in HD on a wide 9.20-inch screen. With excellent connectivity, it ensures quality entertainment and enjoyment on the move.
Advanced driver assistance systems include Autonomous Emergency Braking, Lane Change Assist, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Blind Spot Detection and a Front Vehicle Start Alarm to ensure optimum safety for passengers.
Other features include Auto Closing (the doors lock automatically when the key is carried away from the car), Easy Access (the driver’s seat position is automatically adjusted for easy access when the door opens), high-performing, dual-zone fully automated air-conditioning that filters even fine dust, a 220V/115V inverter in the load area, and a ‘smart tailgate’ for added convenience when loading and unloading the boot. (This automatically opens the tailgate when holding the key next to the car for more than three seconds).
