Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Perhaps one of the most obscure debuts of the Paris Motor Show is the 2017 Ssangyong Rexton, a midsize SUV from a small Korean manufacturer. The vehicle it replaces was a previous generation of the Mercedes-Benz ML, with which Ssangyong had a licensing relationship to build that and an E-Class sedan primarily for consumption on the Korean domestic market.if Ssangyong is looking to grow, the U.S. market is a likely candidate and what better way to enter than through the hot SUV segment.
Offered in 2- and 3-row trim levels, the Rexton will offer seating for up to 7 passengers. While many of the vehicles in its class are relying on unit body construction, the Rexton remains on a more truck-based body-on-frame approach. While it’s expected to be offered mainly with a 2.2-liter diesel engine making 179 horsepower and mated to a 7-speed transmission, it’s also expected to have a newer 2.0-liter direct injection turbocharged gas engine. A new gasoline engine mated to an 8-speed automatic is expected after the vehicle is launched.

The Rexton is a well-priced SUV that has a lot of boot space for the money and can carry seven people.
Reviews are fairly poor though since it’s not good to drive, noisy and has a dull image. It is one of the cheapest ways to move large loads and more people than usual however, so if you’re in that market then it’s worth a look.

Pros
Good off-road
Practical
Long warranty

Cons
Poor ride
Noisy
Outdated

The Rexton’s four-wheel drive system spends most of its life driving the rear wheels only, diverting power to the front when conditions get more slippery. In most of the cars sold in the UK it will be controlled through a Mercedes-sourced seven-speed automatic transmission - but a six-speed manual is likely to be offered on entry-level editions.
The dashboard has a clean look - again, with some cues from the Tivoli - but cross-stitched material panels and Nappa leather add a touch of luxury. The equipment on offer will include dual-zone climate control, a powered rear tailgate that opens automatically when the keyholder has been standing behind it for three seconds, and a new level of safety kit for SsangYong, including nine airbags and rear cross-traffic alert.
