- Rexton 4x4 LCV from just £19,495 ex VAT on the road
- New 2.2 litre diesel Euro 6 engine
- Power and economy up, CO2 emissions down
- Extensively refreshed design
- 4-wheel drive with low range

- Best in class 5 year warranty without mileage restriction
The SsangYong Rexton CSE is a strong, proven and purposeful contender to the light commercial vehicle sector, and is now greatly enhanced with the addition of an upgraded 2.2 litre turbo diesel Euro 6 engine.
Built on a steel ladder chassis and with a 3 tonne towing capacity, the SsangYong Rexton CSE makes an extremely competent off-roader and tow-vehicle, yet with all the equipment and creature comforts LCV drivers expect.
Using a body on frame construction for maximum strength, it also features double wishbone and coil spring suspension to the front, and a five link rigid axle with coil springs at the rear.
Commented Paul Williams, CEO of SsangYong Motor UK: “Priced at only £19,495 (ex VAT), the new 2.2 litre powered Rexton CSE has an almost unrivalled position in the LCV sector.
“Built on a ladder chassis, it is a serious off-roader yet with all the equipment and comfort you expect to find in a SsangYong and at such an amazing price point. Not only do you get a lot of vehicle for the money but also the reassurance of an industry-leading 5 year limitless mileage warranty for complete peace of mind.”
The newly developed e-XDi220 turbo diesel engine meets the demand for a more powerful performance and lower CO2 emissions at the same time. Maximum power is increased to 178ps and torque to 400Nm, and maximum torque is delivered from a low of 1,400rpm and maintained through a wide range up to 2,800rpm for smooth, progressive driving from the start.
Big strides have been made with CO2 emissions which have been reduced to 184g/km, while fuel economy is also improved and now up to 40.4mpg (Combined cycle).
Interior design and load space
At the work end there’s a completely flat load area accessed via a high lifting tailgate and two side doors, and packing a useful 2.2 cubic metre load volume. There’s a load deck length of 1,700cm, and 107cm between the wheel arches. It also carries a very practical 740kg, and willingly pulls a 3 tonne trailer.
Meanwhile, the cabin has been given a refreshed new look. Aluminium-effect and chrome finishes along with soft-touch materials result in a modern and comfortable environment, yet one that will prove extremely practical in everyday use.
The comprehensive level of standard equipment also includes cruise control, air conditioning, electrically operated windows & heated door mirrors, leather covered steering wheel and gear knob, and CD & RDS radio with iPod and Bluetooth connectivity.
The Rexton 2.2 CSE features a comprehensive package of active safety features including Electronic Stability Program (ESP), Active Rollover Protection, ABS with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution and Hill Descent Control, and there are dual front and side air bags.
Designed to appeal as both a work day and weekend leisure vehicle, the new Rexton blends the multi-role flexibility of a great off-road workhorse with a high level of comfort and standard equipment.

5 year limitless mileage warranty
As with all models in the SsangYong LCV range, the new Rexton 2.2 CSE is covered by a 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.
