Given the bulk per buck you get in the Rexton, you might expect the interior to be particularly low-rent, but it isn’t the case. There’s a good spread of soft-touch plastics on the dashboard and areas you touch regularly, buttons that operate precisely and plenty of adjustment for the seats and steering wheel.
You sit high up in the Rexton with a commanding view of the road, although it can be tricky to judge where the front ends. We also found the over-the-shoulder view restricted by very thick rear screen pillars. At least rear parking sensors are standard across the range, with Ultimate models getting an all-round camera as well.
There are harder plastics that aren't that well finished lower down the dashboard, but it’s unlikely that you’ll come into contact with these regularly. All models get a leather-wrapped steering wheel and wood-effect trims, while ELX and above versions get leather seats as well.
Entry-level EX models come with an 8.0in touchscreen infotainment system that does not have sat-nav but does get a DAB radio, Bluetooth, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. ELX and Ultimate trims come with a 9.2in system with TomTom sat-nav. We’ve not tried the 8.0in unit, but the 9.2in one is impressively responsive and easy enough to navigate and has sharp graphics.
