SsangYong recently released a teaser of its upcoming premium SUV – Rexton. The SUV is scheduled to be launched globally on 2nd November. The Mahindra Alturas G4 which is currently on sale in India, is basically a rebadged version of the Rexton. Therefore, the facelifted version of the Rexton is expected to arrive in India as a facelift for Mahindra Alturas G4.
Before its global debut, a new set of images, which reveal the exteriors and interiors has leaked online.
New Rexton features full-LED headlamps and an integrated LED daytime running light set-up. The updated Ssangyong Rexton also sports a wider bumper and a new grille. At the rear end, the SUV comes with a set of new LED tail lamps with Rexton lettering, along with a chrome strip. It also gets a sportier rear bumper with integrated L-shaped reflectors that are accompanied by reversing lights and more chrome.
Inside, the design and layout have been retained but the SsangYong Rexton facelift receives a new multifunction steering wheel and a fully digital instrument console. Details about equipment level are under wraps as of now but we expect a host of new additions.
On the performance front, the upcoming SsangYong Rexton is expected to carry the same-BS6 compliant 2.2-litre mHawk diesel engine, which is also offered in the Mahindra Alturas, in India. This diesel engine is capable of producing a maximum power output of 187bhp and 422Nm of peak torque. We also expect the Rexton to be mated to a 7-speed automatic gearbox to carry the transmission duties.
