What's the used Ssangyong Rexton W like?
The real attraction of the Rexton is that it gives you a lot of car for the money, with something like Land Rover Discovery space for Freelander money.
Up front, the dash is well laid out, and the basically sound driving position gives a commanding view. Head and legroom are fine, although reach adjustment on the steering wheel would help taller drivers make themselves more comfortable. In the back, there's plenty of room for passengers, if not quite as much as in some rivals. The boot, too, is a good size, although it's not terribly wide, but it does house two extra fold-away seats on some models, which turn the Rexton into a seven-seater.
That's all very well - and, what's more, the Rexton is a fine off-roader - but the trouble starts once you drive on-road. The ride never really settles, there's too much body roll in bends and the slow-witted steering makes parking awkward.
