2019 SsangYong Rexton Ultimate review

The segment-straddling SsangYong Rexton 4x4 has the looks, luxury and drivetrain to make inroads against more established players from the rugged Isuzu MU-X to the refined Hyundai Santa Fe crossover. Success may come slowly, but the product looks the goods.

2019 Ssangyong Tivoli facelift spied

The updated Ssangyong Tivoli has been spied ahead of its debut some time in 2019. There's a lot of cladding at the front of the vehicle, but we can definitely say the updated car will have new headlight graphics and a refashioned bumper with round fog lights. Beyond that it seems there will be a revised grille, probably a redesigned bonnet and maybe a reworked set of front quarter panels...

Review: 2019 SsangYong Musso

The Musso will pick up where it left off: a slightly left-of-centre Korean offering with sharp pricing and good inclusions. While it's a bit of a compromise off-road, the good levels of comfort and refinement go a long way. And the new seven-year warranty is an absolute cracker. It's definitely worth jumping behind the wheel for a test drive, to see if that ride and interior tickles your fancy for the money...

Ssangyong Rexton DKR to tackle 2019 Dakar Rally

The Ssangyong Rexton DKR has been unveiled a month before it enters the 2019 Dakar Rally. Apart from the badges and doors, the Rexton DKR seems to share very little with the showroom-ready Rexton. The race car's body is welded to a chrome-molybdenum multi-tubular chassis. The Rexton DKR is powered by a V8 petrol engine generating around 335kW of power...

The practical SsangYong XLV small crossover is not as polished as its newer Rexton stablemate, but a punchy diesel drivetrain and expected sharp pricing will count as positives when it arrives this November.
