South Korean car manufacturer SsangYong has unveiled the facelifted version of their Rexton SUV. This vehicle is available in India with two versions of a 2.7 litre diesel engine under its bonnet. Also, whether or not this new Rexton will be brought to India remains unclear at the moment.
At the front, the new SsangYong Rexton gets new headlights and a new and bolder front grille. This car also gets new, large alloy wheels.
The changes this new car has at the rear are also minimal. Only the tail lamp clusters have been redesigned and almost everything else remains as it was on its predecessor.
Step inside and you immediately notice that the centre console is a totally new unit and so is the 4 spoke multi function steering wheel. The new Rexton also comes equipped with LED ambient lighting and more.
One of the biggest USPs of this SUV was its size and spaciousness. The Rexton is still as roomy on the inside as it always was and for added passenger comfort especially during winters, the seats can be heated.
Using this new steering wheel, the driver can control the audio system and a smartphone paired via bluetooth to make calls without ever needing to take their hands off the wheel.
These new headlamp clusters contain projector units for increased headlamp range. LED daytime running lights are also a new addition and this not only looks good, but increases visibility and thereby safety as well.
