No, not for us yet, the W line-up of Ssangyong Rexton has been given a top-of-the-line ELX version for the UK market. New additions have been made both inside out of this SUV, including a new multi-link rear suspension for more comfort and stability. Available as a 5-seat variant, the Rexton W ELX gets new beige/grey leather on the seats, door trims and carpets. More new features include a multi-function steering wheel covered in luxurious leather and updated instrument console.
On the outside you will notice new 18 inch diamond cut alloy wheels, LED daytime running lights wrapped inside the main headlamp housing, front parking sensors and satellite navigation. The new paint job, Dandy blue metallic finish, is also a welcome addition.
Under the bonnet sits a 2.0 litre turbocharged e-XDi200 diesel engine pushing out 153bhp of maximum power at 4,000rpm and a peak torque of 360Nm between 1,500-3,000rpm. Rexton W has a towing capacity of 3 ton and combined with the ladder chassis you can do some extreme off-roading with it. The new multi-link suspension at the rear will provide better ride quality both on-road and off it.
“We are continually looking for ways to reinforce the SsangYong value proposition,” says Paul Williams, CEO, SsangYong Motor UK, “and this new Rexton W ELX adds a number of significant enhancements at very little extra money. This highly competent 4x4 just got even better!”
