The appearance and characteristics of the flagship model are officially disclosed

SsangYong unveiled a new frame SUV Rexton. The automaker refers the model to the fourth generation, but improvements to the interior and exterior are spot-on, and the design changes boiled down to replacing the transmission, power steering and engine boost. The public premiere of SsangYong Rexton will take place on November 4th.

External modifications of the SsangYong Rexton boiled down to the replacement of bumpers, the appearance of all-LED optics, an octagonal grille with a large section and wheel rims of a different design. The headlights of the newest car are projection, the lamps are with a T-shaped pattern.

SsangYong stylists have added a trendy fake exhaust to the SUV, returned to the old logo with three interlocking rings, and also expanded the possibilities of personalization – from the factory you can now order the Rexton Black with tinted optics, exterior trim in dark chrome and special 20-inch anthracite wheels with five twin-spoke wheels … In profile, the model has hardly changed, because the stamped body elements are the same.

Contrary to the assumptions of insiders, the Rexton engine range was not expanded: the same engines remained in the lineup – 2.2 turbodiesel and 2.0 gasoline turbo four. The unit on “heavy” fuel has become more powerful by 15 forces and now produces 202 horsepower, and an 8-speed automatic transmission has replaced the 7-band “automatic”. The petrol 2.0-liter engine is combined with the old Aisin automatic with six gears.

Another upgrade is the abandonment of the hydraulic power steering in favor of the electric one. No other changes announced: The Rexton is still a frame SUV with rear-wheel drive, a hard-coupled front axle and a crawler gear.

They tried to update the interior with little blood: the Rexton has a digital dashboard with a 12.3-inch display, a new four-spoke multifunction steering wheel, a non-fixed transmission joystick and wireless charging for gadgets. It is claimed that the hardware of the multimedia system is completely new, although the touchscreen diagonal has decreased from 9.2 to 9 inches.

The interior can be trimmed with leather in different shades, but the combination of dark leather and suede is the prerogative of the Black special version. Electric adjustments for second-row seats have appeared: the backs can be expanded almost horizontally at an angle of up to 139 degrees.

Active safety systems include adaptive cruise control, anti-collision systems, lane control and blind spot monitoring.

The public premiere of the new SsangYong Rexton will take place at the Seoul Auto Show on November 4. Domestic Pricing Announced: Model Starts From 37 Million Won.
