Has The New SsangYong Rexton Earned Your Respect Yet?

The 2018 SsangYong Rexton has officially touched European soil, at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show, after being presented in full at Seoul, this spring.

Its arrival at one of the largest automotive events of the fall is not a coincidence, as the Korean automaker is getting ready to launch it internationally, before the end of the year, after it already arrived at dealers in its homeland, where it is known as the G4 Rexton.

Inspired by the LIV-2 Concept, the new generation SsangYong Rexton has a modern design, which brings it in line with the rest of the family. Its cabin is focused on passenger convenience and load space, and can take in up to 7 occupants. At the same time, drivers will come to appreciate some of its amenities, such as the 9.2-inch screen for the infotainment system, smartphone connectivity, navigation, and dual-zone climate control, among others.

SsangYong have also equipped their challenger to the likes of the Hyundai Santa Fe and Nissan X-Trail with autonomous emergency braking, forward collision warning, lane departure warning, traffic sign recognition, and high beam assist.

UK residents will be able to order the SUV starting from next month, with prices ranging between £27,500 ($36,413), for the base EX manual gearbox model, to £37,500 ($49,654) for the range-topping Ultimate, equipped with an automatic transmission.

    No. It hasn’t. But I’m pretty sure that Ssangyong doesn’t care.

    could they not afford to put in windows in the rear quarter?

    I like how they just gave up quilting the 3rd row seats. Would it really have killed them to complete the look?

    Unnecessarily big D-pillar!

  • Nothing against SsangYong, but even in pictures build quality doesn’t look very good.

    Not as ugly as a Land Rover Discovery, the one with the large rear-end.
