What the Press say about:

SsangYong Rexton 2.2 Ultimate

SSANGYONG is making a mark for itself in the UK as a company that provides no nonsense, value-for-money cars. They also provide a staggering seven-year or 150,000mile warranty. Throw in the fact that the Rexton will tow 3.5 tonnes and it’s easy to see why SsangYong is finding a lot of new friends in the equestrian community. If you don’t need a lot of creature comforts in your Rexton, go for the entry level EX model and you will pay £28,995, although it should be pointed out that you still get plenty of goodies as standard. You are probably now thinking that a car which is so reasonably priced as the Rexton is going to be awful to drive and utilitarian to ride in. Think again. It’s very comfortable. It comes with a locking centre differential and low-range ratios in the gearbox, which means that the Rexton will tackle some seriously tricky conditions. The engine might seem small in comparison to some other big SUVs, but it’s up to the job and has great low-end power which means you don’t need to rev the engine hard. It’s big, too. You get a great view of the road because you sit high-up. You can see over hedges and, when driving in town, you look over the roof of the car in front of you.
