Korean car maker, SsangYong, has introduced a new range-topping model will be joining the Rexton W line-up. 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.
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 diesel engine, it delivers maximum power of 155bhp and maximum torque of 360Nm. 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.
“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!”
