NEW RANGE-TOPPING ELX JOINS THE SSANGYONG REXTON W LINE-UP22-04-2015
SsangYong has announced a new range-topping model to its Rexton W line-up - the ELX.
The five-seat Rexton W ELX gets a number of significant enhancements over the EX model, including a luxurious new beige/grey leather interior - seats, door trims and matching carpets, a new multi-function leather covered steering wheel and updated instrumentation. There are also distinctive 18” Diamond cut alloy wheels, LED daytime running lights within the headlamp units, front parking sensors, auto-dipping rear view mirror, heated rear seats and Sat Nav to set the car apart, which is also now available in a smart new Dandy blue metallic finish.
“We are continually looking for ways to reinforce the SsangYong value proposition,” says Paul Williams, CEO of SsangYong Motor UK, “and this new Rexton W ELX adds a number of significant enhancements at very little extra money. This highly competent 4x4 just got even better!”
Built on a steel ladder chassis and with a 3 tonne towing capacity, the SsangYong Rexton W is a serious off-roader and tow-car. Powered by SsangYong’s own 2.0 litre turbo charged e-XDi200 diesel engine, it delivers maximum power of 155ps/4,000rpm and maximum torque of 360Nm/1,500-3,000rpm, and is designed to provide low end torque whatever the conditions. There is a choice of 6-speed manual transmission or 5-speed Mercedes-Benz T-Tronic automatic.
Noted for being an extremely competent off-roader, Rexton W uses a body on frame construction for maximum strength, and the car also features a sophisticated multi-link rear suspension system to ensure a comfortable ride both on and off-road.
The new Rexton W has an almost unrivalled position in the 4x4 sector. Prices start from only £21,995, with the new the ELX at just £27,995.
5 year limitless mileage warranty
All models in the SsangYong range are covered by a best-in-class 5 year limitless mileage warranty. Designed to be totally transparent and give customers complete peace of mind, ‘limitless’ means just that: not a maximum mileage condition that some brands impose in their small print. All the major mechanical components are covered including wheel bearings, suspension joints and bushes, steering joints, shock absorbers and even the audio system. Wearable components such as clutch discs and brake friction materials which could have their life reduced by poor driving are covered for one year or 12,000 miles, and the battery and paintwork for three years.
SsangYong cars are manufactured in South Korea by SsangYong Motor, which is 73 per cent owned by the Indian engineering conglomerate Mahindra & Mahindra, and imported into the UK by SsangYong Motor UK. Established in 1954 it is Korea's oldest vehicle manufacturer and only 4x4 and SUV specialist producer.
There are currently some 60 SsangYong dealers covering England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales, with new locations being added to the network all the time.
