Ssangyong has revealed pricing and specs for its 2019 Rexton SUV, as it prepares to relaunch as a factory-backed manufacturer this November.
The seven-seat SUV is one of four models coming as part of the relaunch, with pricing to start at $39,990 drive-away for the entry-level two-wheel drive petrol EX. It's powered by a four-cylinder turbo petrol engine making 165kW of power, hooked up to a six-speed automatic transmission as standard.
As with its dual-cab Musso spin-off, autonomous emergency braking and forward collision warning are both standard, while it also comes with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, dual-zone climate control, lane-departure warning and automatic high-beam.
Moving up the range brings about a 2.2-litre turbo-diesel engine with 133kW and 420Nm, along with standard all-wheel drive and a seven-speed automatic transmission nicked from the Mercedes-Benz parts bin.
The ELX is priced from $46,990 drive-away, a price jump justified by the diesel engine and niceties like unique seats, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert and lane-change assist.
Topping the range is the Ultimate, priced from $52,990 drive-away. It gains heated/cooled leather seats, 20-inch wheels, a 360-degree camera, sunroof and a powered tailgate.
“We are determined to offer Australia a range of vehicles that are fun to drive, great value to own and complete with a suite of the latest safety technology," said Tim Smith, Ssangyong Australia managing director.
