Power-enhanced beauty SsangYong Motor, the SUV specialist, proudly introduces Rexton the embodiment of power-enhanced beauty. Power Surge. Need thrust? Beneath the bonnet lies a star performer with enough horses for high-speed passing or propelling you into the sunset.

Don’t be fooled by its saloon-like quietness.
The newly developed 2.7-litre fuel-injected Xdi 270 engine cranks out a hefty 165ps and wide-ranging torque for responsive acceleration. Yet despite all that power and pull, the Xdi 270 employs advanced technologies to produce a surprisingly smooth, quiet, and fuel-efficient ride. Matched with Mercedes- Benz’s 5-speed T-Tronic intelligent automatic transmission, the Xdi 270 achieves even higher levels of performance and economy. From the 2.7l and 2.9l diesel to the 2.3l and 3.2l petrol engines, Rexton has a powerplant just right for your needs.

Style Fusion
Conceived by true artists, fashioned by true craftsmen. It’s the ultimate fusion of diverse styles: luxurious, futuristic, handsomely rugged and sophisticated.

Blending the muscular physique of an SUV with the elegant contours of a passenger car, the designers have created a sophisticated new look that’s in tune with the times. From the prominent radiator grille and ultra-modern headlamps to the handsome chromed side garnish and sliver-coloured roof rack, every feature is a dynamic fusion of form and function. Viewed from any angle, Rexton’s exterior firmly places the accent on new.

Off – Roadworthy
Rexton achieves the same great ride comfort & handling both on or off the road. No pavement? No problem. The SMART TODT M( F u l l – t i m e torque-on-demand system) responds the instant a wheel slips, providing on-road ride comfort even when the road disappears. With the available part-time 4WD system, just flip a switch to engage any of three different drive modes for easy on-the-fly shifting. There’s an ultra-rigid frame to cocoon you from punishing bumps and jolts, plus advanced suspension systems that take the suspense out of off-roading.

Luxurious Interior
Cabin comfort as stylish and form-fitting as a custom-tailored suit. LED Black-Face Power Folding Door Mirror Instrument Panel There’s no roomier or more elegant perch for exploring the world than the cockpit of Rexton. Rich black-tone upholstery and trim combine with attractive woodgrain accents to create an interior that’s plush and relaxing, while the LED black-face cluster is easy to read. Driver’s seat and door mirror store settings for up to 3 drivers, and the seat itself can be adjusted 8-ways to accommodate all body sizes and types. First-row heated seats take the chill out of cold-weather driving, and power windows with one-touch express down, autodimming rear-view mirror and illuminated dual sunvisors are just some of many stylish comfort features.

Uncompromised Safety
Rexton is a testament to the high priority SsangYong Motor places on the well-being of you and your loved ones. Because even the best laid plans can’t prepare us for what’s around the next corner, SsangYong takes an unstinting approach to passive and active safety.

Rexton boasts an ultra-rigid frame construction, while ensuring maximum bodyshell safety and door impact beams to withstand frontal, offset or side impacts. Safety-minded features include dual front and side airbags, Speed- Sensing Power Steering(SSPS), rain-sensing wipers, Obstacle Warning System, and the sophisticated Electronic Stability Program(ESP) with Brake Assist System.

Eco-friendly Technology
As Korea’s first manufacturer of 4×4 vehicles, SsangYong has always been acutely aware that our environment must be protected if it is to be enjoyed. That’s why we incorporated the very latest eco-friendly technologies into the construction of Rexton.

From the improved fuel efficiency and the use of non-polluting materials to the engine refinements that meet strictest emissions requirements, we’ve taken great pains to ensure that, on road or off road, Rexton leaves the smallest footprint possible on our planet.
