Review

If what you’re looking for is a beefy off-roader as a tow car that happens to have seven seats, the Ssangyong Rexton is a much cheaper alternative to the similarly rugged Toyota Land Cruiser. However, the Rexton is far too flawed to recommend if you intend to use it predominantly on the road, because there are an awful lot of more suitable and pleasant to drive seven seat alternatives for the money

This is the, er, ultimate Rexton in the range and gets finer nappa leather for the seats, a larger 9.0in infotainment system with built-in sat-nav, a 360-degree camera system, an electric tailgate and some additional safety tech.
