The SsangYong Rexton has a reputation for being a no-nonsense 4x4 and it’s all the better for that. It is a Straightforward 4x4, with the traditional chassis, plus body rather than today's monocoque construction, and it’s all the better an off-roader because of that as well; The latest ELX model gets some significant enhancements that may well indeed turn a few heads and win over a few converts. The model is moving ‘up market’ with leather interior – seats and door trim – with matching carpets.
The multi-function steering wheel is also now leather covered. Distinctive 18inch wheels are fitted, the model gets LED daytime running lights within the headlamp unit front parking sensors, heated seats and a new satnav system.
There's also a new colour option, which is, perhaps rather unfortunately, called Dandy blue metallic. The Rexton range starts with the W at £21,995 rising to £27,995 and that’s a lot of 4x4 for a reasonable price. All SsangYong models come with a claimed best in class five-year limitless mileage warranty.
There are currently 60 dealers in the UK and the company says that it intends increasing this number. If there’s one near you, take a visit.
