New SsangYong Rexton Review
If you are one of those people who likes to get a lot for your hard earned cash, take a long hard look at the SsangYong Rexton, you certainly do get a massive amount of metal for the price that other manufacturers would charge for their entry level SUV's.
SsangYong have been producing specialist vehicles for the far eastern market for over 50 years and after a brief absence from the UK market when they were taken over by Daewoo, who then went bankrupt, SsangYong are back doing what they do best, producing specialist 4x4 vehicles at amazingly cheap prices.
The Rexton is a large SUV that was originally introduced with a choice of either a petrol or two diesel engines although the petrol and the larger diesel have now been dropped in favour of the 2.7 litre turbo diesel unit, which is, incidentally, this is the Mercedes-Benz licensed unit that is also used in the Jeep Grand Cherokee.
The Rexton comes into its own when towing a heavy load, be it a horsebox, boat, trailer or caravan, but be warned, you know that sickly feeling you get in your stomach when you've forgotten something, you may find yourself anxiously checking the rear view mirror on occasions just to make sure the load you are hauling is still there, the Rexton is that good at load lugging.
Standard Specification on all SsangYong Rexton models is very good and even entry level models have ABS with ESP, air conditioning, a category 1 Thatcham alarm, speed sensing door locks and full tinted glass. Move up a level of trim and you get 16 inch alloys, leather upholstery and side airbags.
All in all, the SsangYong Rexton is a large lump of metal for not a very large lump of cash.
Like the looks of the Ssangyong Rexton, why not check out the BMW X5, the Volvo XC90, the Toyota Land Cruiser, the Land Rover Discovery or the Jeep Grand Cherokee.
