Costs & verdict
Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is
If we were judging this category solely on a pound-for-pound basis, the SsangYong Rexton would do very well. You get an awful lot of car for your money and the least expensive Ventura models undercut the cheapest Toyota Land Cruiser by a significant amount of cash, despite offering far more luxuries.
You get all the kit you actually need and a few luxury items as well on our preferred entry-level Ventura model. Upgrading to Ultimate is only worth it if you really want the bigger infotainment screen and nicer leather we discuss in other sections, along with an electric tailgate, ambient interior lighting and keyless entry and start.
