The SsangYong Rexton doesn’t look like the others in this category from the outside. Careful consideration has gone into shaping the car to be a bit more luxe and a bit less butch and boxy than its counterparts.
It still has a very bulky, very broad front end which shows it means business in the off-road stakes.
The interior in the Rexton Ultimate is better than expected, and by that I mean more 'designed' than its competitors. With quilted stitching accents on the leather seats and dash, a leather-trimmed steering wheel and some accents like faux wooden trim, it’s certainly trying to look more luxurious than the average 4WD you take off-road.
The execution of these elements is not to a high level, though - the leather on the seats is average, though they are comfortable and have heated and cooling options, and the faux wooden trim looks a bit cheap.
Still, overall it’s not too bad and more stylish than its competitors, plus there's a sunroof on this model.
