The Rexton is SsangYong's first offering in India after being taken over by Mahindra. Designed and developed by SsangYong in Korea, the Rexton is manufactured and assembled at Mahindra’s Chakan Plant near Pune by sourcing components from SsangYong Korea and from India. Although it doesn’t have the road presence of its competitors such as Toyota Fortuner and Ford Endeavour, the Rexton is a modern-looking SUV. The cabin is well appointed with high-quality plastic and leather, which give the interiors a luxurious feel. Powered by a 2.7 litre RX270 XDi diesel engine that delivers 162 bhp and 340Nm torque, the Rexton offers a mileage of 11.18 kmpl. The Rexton boasts of superior on and off-road driving performance, modern technologies and contemporary styling, indulgent conveniences and comfort. Yet, it disappoints in terms of handling, noisy engine and slow gearbox. The Rexton is priced from Rs. 17.67 lakh for the RX5 version with manual transmission to Rs 19.67 lakh for the RX7 version with automatic transmission.
