SsangYong to launch Rexton W next Monday

Korean car brand SsangYong will launch its Rexton W flagship 4x4 next Monday 7 April with prices starting at €34,119.

Three versions will be offered - passenger 7-seater, commercial and a 5-seater utility commercial.

Rexton W will be powered by SsangYong's own 2.0 turbo charged diesel engine.

Buyers can choose between a 6-speed manual transmission or 5-speed automatic. When going off-road, the driver can select low range which also splits the torque equally between front and rear axels to provide all round traction and ensure optimum grip. With its 2.6 tonne towing capability, the new Rexton W will make light work of hauling a full-size caravan, double horsebox, boat or work trailer.

The car's cabin has been given a refreshed new look but will be practical for everyday use. Seats come in leatherette as standard or full leather as an optional extra.

Standard equipment includes heated front and rear seats, cruise control, air conditioning, electrically operated and heated folding door mirrors, CD & RDS radio with USB and Bluetooth connectivity.

Five exterior colours are offered.

The commercial automatic is priced from €36,769; the Business Edition 5-seater Commercial utility from €38,329 - automatic from €41,377; and the 7-seater passenger from €44,474/ Automatic from €48,185. All prices include VAT. All models come with 5 year warranty and Road Side Assistance.
