New SsangYong Rexton Powertrain
2.2 Litre E-XDI 220 Diesel Engine
The new Rexton offers plenty of brawn and brain.
The new 2.2 litre Euro 6 engine delivers maximum power of 181PS at 4000rpm and maximum torque of 420Nm* at 1600-2600rpm and is designed to provide low-end torque for effortless cruising whatever the conditions, whatever the load.
This highly-efficient, extremely quiet e-XDi 220 engine provides progressive acceleration from a standing start.*Available on automatic only.
Transmission the choice is yours
6-speed manual transmission? Or 7-speed Mercedes-Benz E-Tronic automatic transmission?
The new Rexton offers a choice of both. And both offer gear changes with world-class durability and smoothness.
Multi Link Suspension
The new Rexton takes every surface in its stride.
A smooth combination of double-wishbone suspension at the front and 10-link independent suspension at the rear* enables the car to deliver great ride-quality across a range of terrains - from city roads to serious off-roading.*Available on automatic only.
New SsangYong Rexton Towing Capacity & 4 x 4 Technology
At SsangYong, we don’t just understand 4x4, we’re fluent in it. Specialists with over 65 years of 4-wheel drive experience. The new Rexton 4x4 system draws on all that experience of continuously advancing 4x4 technology. Its selectable 4-wheel drive system is reassuringly capable, whatever the need, whatever the weather. When the going gets really tough, you can you simply select ‘low-range’ which splits the torque equally between front and rear axles to provide all-round traction and ensure optimum grip across even the most challenging terrain.
Fluent in 4X4
For greater efficiency and fuel-economy, the car features a part-time 4x4 option with power delivered just to the rear wheels for normal road use. 4-wheel drive can be selected electronically when required and low-ratio selected when the off-road conditions become more challenging.
The new Rexton will make light work of hauling a large caravan, horsebox, boat or work trailer.
It has a strong ladder chassis that provides a substantial towing platform and a mighty towing capability of 3.5 tonnes*.
Add that to the 4x4 capability and we’re sure you’ll understand why we call it ‘magnificently muscular’.*Automatic only
Hill Start Assist
Rolling backwards during a hill start is a thing of the past with the new Rexton.
In these kind of situations, its Hill Start Assist feature acts as an automatic handbrake and is a great ally to have on your side when driving in tricky conditions or when towing.
Hill Descent Control
The new Rexton also helps you stay in control when you find yourself driving downhill.
Hill Descent Control is a low-speed control that activates when the car is handling a steep downhill drive and automatically controls of the rate of descent.
