New Car: 2013 Ssangyong Rexton
The new Rexton is powered by a five-cylinder DOHC 2.7-litre turbo-diesel motor, sourced from Mercedes and will be offered with 5-speed manual and 5-speed automatic variants. The engine has been tuned differently for the two gearboxes, so the manual version will have a power and torque rating of 162bhp and 34.7kgm while the automatic version will produce a far more substantial 184bhp and 41kgm.
The Rexton comes in two variants, RX5 and RX7.
The RX5 is available with a 5-speed manual gearbox. The interiors get premium fabric upholstery, leather-wrapped steering wheel and gear knob, and 8-way manually adjustable driver seat.
The RX7 comes with a 5-speed E-tronic automatic gearbox with manual mode and winter switch. There are E-tronic shift buttons on the steering wheel and it also gets a shift position indicator, memory function with three presets for the driver seat and OVRMs, electronic sunroof with sunblind, automatic headlamps, rain-sensing wipers, cruise control and all-wheel-drive system. It also has premium leather upholstery, leather-wrapped steering wheel with additional metal grain accents, gear knob with chrome and eight-way electrically adjustable driver seat.
