There’s plenty of seat adjustment – especially so on the electronically operated seats fitted to range-topping EX models – but unfortunately there’s no reach adjustment for the steering wheel, so not everyone will be able to get perfectly comfortable. At least the switchgear is logically laid out and clearly labelled, making it easy to use on the move.
Ssangyong Rexton space & practicality
All Rexton Ws come with seven seats as standard, but you can have five at no extra cost. There’s enough space for the tallest adults up front, and the middle row is roomy enough for two adults or three children to sit comfortably. While there’s good head- and legroom in the third row, however, the tiny footwell makes these seats better suited to children on long journeys. The boot is large and a practical square shape.
Ssangyong Rexton equipment
Standard kit is pretty good for the money. Entry-level SX models get climate control, cruise control, alloy wheels and Bluetooth. Range-topping EX versions add electrically adjustable leather seats, a sunroof, rear parking sensors and privacy glass, but they’re a lot more expensive. DAB radio can be added on its own or with sat-nav as an optional extra on all models.
