SsangYong Rexton 2019 pricing and specs confirmed

The new Rexton SUV is here to take on the likes of the Isuzu MU-X, with strong towing, plus the choice of petrol or diesel.

Pricing and details of the SsangYong Rexton 2019 model range have been announced, with the Korean brand's big family four-wheel drive arriving with aggressive pricing and plenty of equipment.

As a competitor to the likes of the LDV D90, Mitsubishi Pajero Sport and Isuzu MU-X, the all-new seven-seat SsangYong Rexton will have its work cut out for it in the hardcore off-roader segment - but not all grades are as hardcore as others.

There are three models in the Rexton line-up, with the entry-grade EX 2WD focusing on people who don't need all-wheel drive, but still need seven seats and strong towing capability.

The EX uses a 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine with 165kW of power and 350Nm of torque. Fuel use for this six-speed automatic, rear-wheel drive model is claimed at 10.4 litres per 100 kilometres, and it will have claimed towing capacity of 750kg for an unbraked trailer, and 3000kg for a braked trailer. SsangYong Australia says it is working to increase that figure to 3.5 tonnes on all grades.

The entry-level EX model comes with an 8.0-inch touchscreen media system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, plus there's a reversing camera, dual-zone climate control, auto emergency braking (AEB) with forward collision warning (FCW), auto high-beam headlights and lane departure warning.

The next model up the Rexton range is the ELX AWD, which uses a 2.2-litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel engine producing 133kW of power and 420Nm of torque, and is teamed to a seven-speed automatic transmission sourced from Mercedes-Benz.

All SsangYong models will be sold with a seven-year unlimited kilometre warranty program. All SsangYong models will be sold with a seven-year unlimited kilometre warranty program.

ELX models come with nine airbags (EX: seven airbags), plus the addition of blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, and lane-change assist.
