SsangYong Rexton (2003 – 2012) Review
SsangYong Rexton (2003 – 2012) At A Glance
It's obviously designed to supply a lot of status. The styling isn't quite the way Land Rover would do it, but when you see Rextons in glass and chrome showrooms in places like Bangkok you can understand how they are trying to nick a chunk of the fat cat 4x4 market. All this is very important because if it doesn't grab you that way then there is no point at all in buying a top-spec Rexton 270 SX XDI which is the subject of this test.
Adopting a completely different mind-set, the Rexton 290E Tdi does make a huge amount of sense to farmers and anyone needing a cheap, big, basic 4x4 to haul something heavy. Like a 3,500 kilo livestock trailer, horsebox, chrome caravan or mobile hamburger stand. The difference is the list price: just £17,499 on the road for a massive motor, the only gap in the spec of which is a lack of aircon.
