The Rexton is SsangYong’s flagship sport utility vehicle (SUV), and is greatly enhanced for 2016 with the addition of an upgraded Euro six compliant powertrain.
In addition to the new 2.2 litre Euro six diesel engine, Rexton also gets the choice of a six-speed manual transmission or new Mercedes-Benz seven-speed automatic.
The newly developed e-XDi220 diesel engine meets the demand for a more powerful performance and lower CO2 emissions at the same
time. Maximum power is increased to 175bhp and torque to 295lb/ft – up by 15% and 11% respectively over the previous Euro five diesel two litre engine. Maximum torque is delivered from a low of 1,400rpm and maintained through a wide range up to 2,800rpm for smooth, progressive driving.
Big strides have also been made with CO2 emissions which have been reduced to 184g/km, down from 196g/km on the previous manual transmission model, while fuel economy is considerably improved and now up to 40mpg (Combined cycle) compared with 38.2mpg on the model it replaces.
The three models – SE, EX and ELX, are priced from just £22,995.
