In terms of size the seven-seater Rexton fits somewhere between its South Korean rivals, the Kia Sorento and Hyundai Sante Fe and more upmarket European vehicles ranging from the Volvo XC90 to the Land Rover Discovery.
Priced from £27,500 for the entry-level EX to £37,500 for the range-toppingUltimate, the Rexton not only represents serious value for money, but it’s also a huge improvement on its predecessor.
As for equipment, the range-topper (Rexton Ultimate) comes with 20-inch alloy wheels, HID headlamps, LED fog lamps with cornering function, interior mood lighting, three-dimensional around-view monitoring, lane change assist, blind-spot detection, rear-cross traffic alert, heated and ventilated seats and a ‘smart’ electronic tailgate.
Prices in the UK start from £27,500 (RM154k) to £37,500 (RM210k) for the full-spec Rexton Ultimate. Liking what you see here, guys? Do you think SsangYong Malaysia should make a comeback with this? Comment below!
