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

get the best price

Entry-level Ventura is really all you’ll need in a Rexton because it’s got 18in alloys, LED headlights, front and rear parking sensors, faux-leather seats inside that are heated all-round and cooled in the front, along with an 8.0in infotainment system with full smartphone capabilities.
