The new Rexton is a bold step forward by SsangYong. Immediately impressive with its sheer presence and dynamic lines, it’s a rugged, real and authentic 4x4 that lives and breathes ‘now’. Yet so gracefully styled that its workhorse capability is a surprise to all but the driver. The exterior styling flows from SsangYong’s concept of ‘Dignified Motion’. All of this is backed by four generations of Rexton and over 60 years of specialising in four-wheel drives. The new Rexton achieves a perfect balance between form and function, with a big splash of luxury.
The interior has been designed to be easy on the eye and on the mind. The whole approach to the cabin is to simply make everything around the driver feel wonderfully instinctive and refreshingly enjoyable. Generous shoulder and headroom. Quilted black or Ivory Nappa leather trim. Multi-adjustable seating. Automated air-conditioning. Ambient night lighting. Attention to detail is there for all to see. The control-in-comfort is for all to feel.
The ever-thinking brain of the new Rexton is the Supervision Cluster*.
An ingenious array of essential information and safety features displayed simply on a large 7-inch LCD screen.
It provides quick, easy access to a whole range of important info. Including a whole range of safety warnings such as lane departure warnings, parking sensors, navigation assist, tyre direction warnings and smart power tailgate warnings. It also is the means to control a whole range of features – even the turn signal warning that can be set to sound like a cricket!
So that the Rexton driver will always be in-the-know, at-a-glance.

Towing & 4X4
At SsangYong, we don’t just understand 4x4, we’re fluent in it. Specialists with over 60 years of 4-wheel drive experience.

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.
The new Rexton is one of the strongest cars in its class. It’s built on a high-strength body-on-frame construction and features a comprehensive suite of the latest electronic safety aids. For further reassurance, it’s also available with up to 9 airbags*.

Electronic Brake-Force Distribution Anti-Lock Brake System
EBD-ABS distributes brake force appropriately to the front and rear wheels according to the vehicle’s load of passengers and/or cargo.
Electronic Stability Programme
ESP constantly monitors road conditions and vehicle status and automatically adjusts engine output and braking whenever the driver is about to lose control. It integrates the ABS, active rollover protection, anti-slip regulation and brake-force assist.
Brake Assist System
BAS automatically activates full braking in an emergency to reduce the vehicle’s braking distance to help avoid an accident.
The new Rexton also takes the safety of children seriously.
The car is equipped with ISOFIX child-seat mountings to the rear outer seats to ensure that child seats are attached firmly and rigidly.
Tyre Pressure Monitoring System
Tyre pressure is something the driver will never be unsure about in the new Rexton. A tyre pressure monitoring is built into the car’s electronics and displayed via the trip computer.
Each tyre is continually checked for pressure and the driver is immediately warned of unsafe readings.
