The new SsangYong Rexton W reaches the UK this winter bringing an all new-look to a familiar model line.
The seven-seat 4x4 car will be priced from £21,995.
Paul Williams, CEO of SsangYong Motor UK, said: “With prices starting from only £21,995, this new car has an almost unrivalled position in the 4x4 sector, particularly as prices for our Korean and Japanese competitors have migrated steadily upwards over recent years.
“Built on a proper ladder chassis, Rexton W is a serious off-roader, yet with all the equipment and creature comforts expected of an urban cruiser. At such an amazing price point, not only do you get a lot of car for the money, but you also have the reassurance of an industry-leading 5 year limitless mileage warranty for complete peace of mind.”
The Rexton W is powered by SsangYong’s own 2.0 litre turbo charged e-XDi200 diesel engine which delivers maximum power of 155PS/4,000rpm and maximum torque of 360Nm/1,500-2,800rpm.
There’s the choice of a 6-speed manual transmission or 5-speed Mercedes-Benz T-Tronic automatic, and when going off road the driver can select low range which also splits the torque equally between front and rear axles to provide all round traction and ensure optimum grip.
With its 3 tonne towing capability, the new Rexton W will also haul a full-size caravan, double horsebox, boat or work trailer.
Standard equipment also include cruise control, air conditioning, electrically operated & heated door mirrors, leather covered steering wheel and gear knob, and CD & RDS radio with iPod and Bluetooth connectivity. The EX model also gets an electrically operated memory driver’s seat, leather upholstery, privacy glass, sunroof and rear parking sensors.
