For The Rexton W offers a lot of space and off-road ability for not a lot of money. The diesel engine is pretty refined.
Against It isn’t as good to drive on-road or as classy inside as rival SUVs. The amount of safety kit is disappointing, too.
What Car? says
If value for money is your main concern, the Ssangyong Rexton W is worth considering. Many rivals are better to drive and cheaper to run, though.

There are 2 Ssangyong Rexton W versions available
Target Price team says:
The Ssangyong Rexton W is a cheap way into a rugged seven-seat 4x4. It isn’t as good to drive or as cheap to own as the best rivals, though.
The range is simple, with just one engine and a couple of gearboxes and trim levels to choose from. We’d go for the entry-level SX model, which keeps the price low, is the cheapest version to run and has the essential bits of equipment as standard.
We’d avoid the EX automatic model, because it’s pricey and the auto gearbox is slow to respond when you want a burst of acceleration.
We wouldn’t bother with the optional sat-nav system, either. Not only is it expensive, it’s nowhere near as easy to use as the set-ups in many rivals.
