DESIGNED to deliver more in every respect, styled inside and out with graceful detailing that compliments its rugged off-road capability, the all-new Ssangyong Rexton is a new authentic SUV that will re-establish SsangYong’s brand identity, making it look and feel like a game-changer.
Local sole distributor of SsangYong Motor, TCY Motors Sdn Bhd, took pride in officially launching the all-new Rexton seven-seater Petrol SUV yesterday just months after the introduction of the diesel model.
Members of the local media representatives were invited to the launch yesterday and took the wheels for a driving experience and get to know its features.
SsangYong’s implicitly expres-ses the Great 4 Revolution through its Rexton for a flagship SUV, in particular the Quad Frame using Advanced High Strength Steel (AHSS) and newly developed based on a strategic partnership with POSCO, in order to offer greatly improved body strength while minimising weight applied on the Rexton.
The Korean manufacturer, with the growing demand for stronger off-road driving performance and a larger towing capacity in the large-sized SUVs, expects to see more applications of the frame-type and FR drive systems in the large-sized SUVs in the global market.
It will address such needs with the G4 Rexton and further strengthen its position as an SUV specialised manufacturer.
With a charismatic design and a 2WD driving performance that befits a traditional SUV as well as excellent utilisation of the interior space along, the all-new Rexton provides an unmatched driving experience and emotional satisfaction to consumers.
The exterior styling flows from SsangYong’s concept of ‘Dignified Motion’ and all of this is backed by four generations of Rexton with over 65 years of four-wheel drive specialism and with the new Rexton, it achieves a perfect balance between form and function, topped off by just a little luxury.
