SsangYong is starting to improve its model range in the UK, as the new 2016 Rexton SUV is now available to buy, with four different model options. This new version is massively enhanced over the older model, and also sports the new 6-speed manual or Mercedes-Benz 7-speed automatic gearbox.
Along with the other changes, which we will get to soon, there is also the new e-XDi220 2.2 litre Euro 6 diesel engine, which seems to work beautifully with those new gearbox options. The engine has lower CO2 emissions than before, as it goes from 196g/km to 184g/km for the manual options, and also more powerful than its predecessor as well.
2016 SsangYong Rexton specs are not going to blow you away likes its more expensive competition, but you still get a decent array of features. The first of which is its 3 tonne towing capacity, five link rigid axle, along with oil springs at the rear, superb off-road capability, 18” Diamond cut alloy wheel, LED daytime running lights and font and rear sensors.
As for the interior, you have the option of five or seven seats, auto-dipping rear view mirror, Sat Nav and even heated rear seats.
The 2016 SsangYong Rexton models and prices are the 2.2 SE, 2.2 EX, 2.2 EX automatic and the 2.2 ELX automatic for £22,995, £25,495, £26,995 and £28,995 respectively.
