At a glance, it gets enough look to get to global market. Let’s see what it has inside. Here is the 2017 SsangYong Rexton update.
2017 SsangYong Rexton Specs
Under the hood, this SsangYong Rexton 2017 car will be empowered by turbocharged DGI 2.0 liter of the petrol engine. However, this engine is probably not going to the UK. Instead, buyers will be offered with the previous engine, 2.2 liters of the diesel engine that generates around 178 bhp of power output. This engine is used in the current model, and it is going to be paired with the same transmission derived from Mercedes-Benz.
However, Ssangyong confirmed that they were planning for the petrol engine in the UK along with more modern eight-speed transmission from Mercedes-Benz in the following year. This manufacturer reads European market favorite engine, but their output is not yet promising to compare to rivals.
Next-Gen SsangYong Rexton 2017 Features, Exterior and Interior
This is going to be an SUV car with the muscular look. The car brand tries to follow the trend and make their style out of it. Inspired by many natural things and Korean beauties, the SUV features blunt silhouette we get from CX90, sloping roof, and square accent just above the wheel arches. This is going to be a small SUV with the boxy look.
At a glance, new SsangYong Rexton seems a little dull, trying so far to make the aggressive look. However, the inside is pretty nice. It sounds like a Mercedes-Benz cabin from one or two generations ago. However, unlike most current cars, this SUV is filled with buttons and gauges. SsangYong hasn’t mentioned more about the interior features, but it looks better than the outside look.
2017 SsangYong Rexton Release Date
The first global debut will be its appearance on Paris Motor Show event. However, it will be officially sold in the UK by next year. 2017 SsangYong Rexton Price in the UK is not known yet, but it is estimated to start from £26,000. This is a brave price for the first global debut. Let’s see how it turns out.
So far, this car seems quite ready, but it will probably not win the market with premium brands dominate the competition. Rivals are too tight in the global market. However, this car seems to have enough potential and the new SsangYong Rexton is going to be a start of fantastic achievement for the manufacturer.
