The SsangYong Rexton

Whether working hard during the day, relaxing in the evening, or at leisure over the weekend, the SsangYong Rexton already offers motorists three cars in one, and all from only £18,800 on the road.

Now its importer – SYUK Cars Ltd – has introduced a comprehensive range of accessories so customers can individually personalise their vehicles, while also making them even more useable for when they’re at work, rest or play. This new range of accessories starts from around £40.

A working tool

Built on a separate ladder chassis for strength, powered by a choice of two engines, a 2.9 turbo diesel, or 3.2 litre petrol, and with an electronic selectable 4WD system (full-time only on petrol model), the Rexton makes a good workmate for load lugging, towing a trailer or horsebox, and getting round a farm or construction site.

Now with specially designed accessories that include tow bars, load liners, and a Bluetooth mobile phone hands-free kit, SsangYong has some very practical yet safety conscious solutions to make working life easier and better for customers.

The mobile phone kit meets the recent mobile phone safety regulations and includes radio-muting technology so that when a call comes through the radio automatically decreases in volume. The kit costs £198.26 including VAT.

Customers can also opt for a parking sensor to prevent minor knocks when reversing, and a satellite security tracker will also be available soon.

Style at night

After a hard day’s work, just wash off the mud to transform the Rexton into a stylish vehicle for the evening to transport you, your partner, family or friends in style to the latest trendy restaurant in town. To cut a dash, new accessories such as alloy wheels, chrome sidebars and a rear spoiler add a sleek, chic look – the perfect finishing touches.

Play time

Whether heading for the hills for some mountain bike riding, skiing or climbing, the Rexton’s sophisticated 4-wheel drive system, which can be shifted ‘on the fly’, promotes a go anywhere, do anything attitude. Other new accessories will be available soon including; roof bars, bike rack, roof box and ski rack making life easier for customers and with the new dog guard, Fido can come too, all in complete comfort and safety.

For the ultimate in in-car sound, audio upgrades are also available including six CD multichanger and satellite navigation system.
