Car video reviews:

Body style: SUV (Sports Utility Vehicle)
Segment: Large SUV


Founded way back in 1939, the SsangYong Group became a great industrial company over the years, performing in many areas such as oil, paper, and others.

It was later in 1986 when they bought the Ha Dong Hwan Motor Company, a producer that sold trucks since 1954.

The Rexton was a strong competitors to the Kia Sorento and the Hyundai Terracan. The exterior design was rather boxy, but clean.

Inside the Rexton, the cabin offered an old-school layout, however, the controls were easy to operate and were intuitively positioned.

The comfortable seats along with the adjustable steering wheel provided the driver with a good driving position, great for journeys as well.

The Rexton could easy accommodate up to 5 adults, as its dimensions were close to a large SUV’s.

While advertised as a vehicle with a high quality finish interior, the plastics inside were not among the finest.

All trim levels came with dual airbags and side impact beams, as well as ABS, traction control, air-conditioning, a leather steering wheel, alloy wheels and roof rails.

Premium quality leather upholstery was available with the SE and the SX trim levels.

The Rexton was well known for its mechanical durability.

The Diesel engines were pretty noisy and were not very agile, options being a 2.7-liter engine that developed 162 hp, a 2.9-liter powerplant and the bigger 3.2-liter that produced 217 hp.
