First look at all-new Ssangyong Rexton

21 March 2006

  • New model of Ssangyong's 4x4 on sale in Korea
  • Details on UK launch sketchy – could be 2007
  • Korean model powered by 141bhp 2.0-litre diesel


This all-new Ssangyong Rexton 4x4 goes on sale in Korea at the end of this month, but there's no date set for its arrival in the UK.

Although Ssangyong UK says it will eventually go on sale in this country, it isn't giving any idea of when.

In Korea, it will use the 141bhp 2.0-litre turbodiesel that's currently sold in the company's Kyron off-roader in the UK.

Again, there's no word yet from the company on whether this engine will also come to the UK, or whether the more powerful 163bhp 2.7-litre diesel in the existing model will be retained.
