You may remember that Daewoo took over the Korean company SsangYong and then re-branded their 4x4 offerings as the Daewoo Korando and Musso. After a brief absence from the UK SsangYong, have released the Rexton which heralds the return of the brand with an all new 4x4 for customers looking for a stylish, and practical off-road vehicle. The Rexton was launched in South Korea in 2001, and came to the UK in 2003.
The Rexton is a five door SUV which is equally as happy cruising urban streets and motorways as it is mud-plugging as a work-horse or leisure vehicle. It can seat up to seven people, and has an electronic selectable 4WD system (full-time only on the petrol model).
The Rexton is available with a choice of three engines a 2.7 litre diesel, a 2.9 litre diesel and 3.2 litre petrol engine.
We tested the SsangYong Rexton 2.7 SX 5-Speed T-Tronic to see if it could live up to SsangYong's claims that it is 'the intelligent alternative'.
