UNVEILED: NEW SSANGYONG REXTON

The new SsangYong Rexton has been revealed ahead of its public debut at the Seoul motor show this week. The SUV will continue the Rexton name internationally – but will be called G4 Rexton in Korea – and will be available with rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. The new Rexton will be the flagship model in SsangYong’s range, above the Korando and a new seven-seat SUV that was previewed with the XAVL concept at the Geneva motor show.

The new model gets a much more modern look, with a large, wide grille and detailed front fog lights and big headlights. Aimed at the more premium end of the market, the car maker has put an emphasis on creating a more luxurious cabin with a larger 9.2-inch touchscreen that is compatible with Apple Car Play and Android Auto.

The Rexton is expected to receive all-important driver safety aids, with the inclusion of autonomous emergency braking, pedestrian detection, blind spot monitoring and auto high-beam among others. The company will offer two engine variants; a 2.2-litre turbocharged diesel engine that can generate 178 bhp and 420Nm and a 2.0-litre turbo petrol engine that is good for 221 bhp and 350Nm. Both will be offered with a six-speed manual, while the petrol will utilize a six-speed auto and a seven-speed auto developed by Mercedes-Benz will be fitted to the diesel model.
