Rexton name to return on all-new Ssangyong SUV

SsangYong's new large SUV will retain the Rexton name.

The new car was developed under the project name of Y400 and seen as the LIV-2 concept at the Paris motor show in September 2016.

SsangYong says it believes the new Rexton should compete with traditional D & E segment SUVs.

The vehicle will feature Apple Carplay and Android Auto with device mirroring, 3D Around View Monitoring (AVM) and a wide 9.2-inch HD screen.

Constructed using a Quad-Frame body structure using 1.5Gpa giga-steel, it also features 63% advanced high strength steel (AHSS) to create greatly improved body strength while reducing weight.

Rexton is 4,850mm long, 1,920mm wide, 1,800mm high, and has a 2,865mm wheelbase.  It will be powered by both petrol and new diesel engines.

The car will go on sale in Korea during the first half of this year, and internationally before the end of 2017.
