Rexton MY20
general

 BRIEF HISTORY
SsangYong, meaning “double dragon” is a Korean car manufacturer specialising in 4x4s, SUVs and pick-up trucks. Initially established in 1954, SsangYong Motor Company started producing trucks, busses and special purpose vehicles for the export market, establishing the strong and reliable DNA of its products on the market today.

As Korea’s only SUV and 4x4 specialist manufacturer, SsangYong Motors has been committed to refreshing its entire product portfolio and has introduced four entirely new models in four years - Tivoli in 2015, Rexton in 2017, Musso pick-up truck in 2018 and Korando in 2019 – all superseding previous generations, the only thing in common being the name. The brand, which mainly designs and manufactures its own key components including state of the art high-technology engines, will continue its exciting programme of new models stretching into the 20’s, including vehicles more eco-friendly engines and with pure-electric powertrains.

AN EVOLUTION OF REXTON DESIGN
SsangYong Motors has led Korea’s SUV market since introducing the Rexton in 2001. In 2017, the Rexton was totally revamped with a 4th generation model, and is now known to be smarter, safer, and more stylish than ever.  The new 2017 Rexton was a total re-design from the ground up, the only thing in common with its’ predecessor, is its name.

Following hard on the heels of new Tivoli, when SsangYong set new standards for value-priced compact SUVs, the 2017 Rexton introduction was further evidence of the brands re-generation after Mahindra and Mahindra made significant investments in the company.  It demonstrated the rapid progress being made as a specialist producer of 4x4’s and SUV’s.

Now enters the facelift to the 2017 model into the UK market. The refreshed, modern new-look 20-model year design was led by the team at the firms R&D Centre in Pyeongtaek, South Korea, and features a range of updates designed to deliver more in every respect - more presence, more prestige, more strength, more safety, more style and more space.  It’s been restyled inside and out with graceful detailing that complements its rugged off-road capability, and it looks and feels like a game-changer.

From every aspect, the new 20-model year Rexton has an eye-catching design, with a powerful, sturdy stance that serves as a solid foundation for its superior ride and handling dynamics. Inside, the Rexton impresses even further with its driver assistance technologies and safety aids and multimedia options. Engineered for an active lifestyle, new Rexton exceeds expectations by delivering spacious comfort, practical go-anywhere ability and superior safety. Its exterior is inspired by the ‘Dignified Motion’ of SsangYong’s design language and as you’d expect from over 65 years of SsangYong four-wheel drive heritage, it’s a magnificently muscular thing.

EXTERIOR DESIGN CUES
Rexton is a multi-role four-wheel drive SUV, blending style with bold features that project stability and on-road presence. It’s a bold step forward for SsangYong, particularly with the new and most noticeable difference from the outgoing model – its grille. Its striking and impressive, giving Rexton an immediate and impressive presence. SsangYong’s updated flagship model retains it’s a rugged, real four-wheel drive capability but shows new dynamic lines, taking its design cue from SsangYong’s concept of “Dignified Motion”.

Its headlight units group together LED daytime running lights, high-intensity headlamps for improved night vision, LED fog lights, positioning lamps and directional indicators. At the rear of the vehicle are LED rear combination side lights, a spoiler with high-mounted LED stop light and LED number plate lights. And from all angles the car is enhanced by the road-owning 18-inch alloy wheels.

INTERIOR DESIGN CUES
Rexton offers generous levels of equipment along with cutting edge integrated design technologies.  Its interior achieves a balance between comfort and control – a perfect equilibrium offering generous space, contemporary luxury and impressive technology.

To ensure maximum space and comfort, both driver and passenger needs are taken into consideration in the design of the overall package. This is a multi-role SUV which blends style with load carrying capability, designed to be somewhere you’d be happy to spend a lot of time in; the cabin is spacious and luxurious with plenty of shoulder and headroom. Legroom in the second row is especially generous and second-row seats may be double-folded to maximise the load space. In fact, the Rexton’s size gives you one of the largest load spaces in its sector.

The Rexton is incredibly flexible with a huge capacity for luggage. Measured up to window level, the EX model offers 1,977 litres of rear boot space with the seats down and 820 litres of boot space with the seats up. The second row of seats split 60:40 (with ISOFIX) with a folding centre armrest and fold completely flat for large loads. In 7-seat models, along with the second-row seats folding 60:40, the third row can be folded individually 50:50 to give more flexibility. Access to these rear seats is made easy by the double-folding second row seats.

The ergonomic eight-way driver seat has four-way lumbar support and the passenger seat is six-way power adjustable. Maximum seat comfort is ensured by Pullmaflex springs and varying density of the foam used in different areas of the seat cushion. For added comfort, the tilt angle on the second row of seats can be adjusted up to 32.5 degree maximum from the vertical position. In addition, the front and rear seats are heated, and the Ultimate front seats are ventilated. Seats are trimmed with cloth, a top-end TPU or Nappa leather, giving it a “soft-touch” and premium feel cabin.

Rexton’s ever-thinking ‘brain’ is its supervision cluster. It provides quick, easy access to a wealth of important information including a whole range of safety warnings such as lane departure warnings, parking sensors, navigation assist, tyre direction warnings and smart power tailgate warnings. Other features include heated steering wheel with tilt, rake and reach, keyless start and automatic tailgate.

THE REXTON LINE-UP
Available in a 2.2 diesel engine with a 6-speed manual or a 7-speed Mercedes Benz automatic transmission, the SsangYong Rexton is extremely well equipped and comes with generous levels of equipment as standard. Adorned with at new striking and defined front styling concept, the D-segment vehicle comfortably seats five or seven passengers with plenty of cargo space and the versatility that you would expect from a modern SUV. There are three trim levels to choose from – the low-spec EX, mid-spec ELX and the high-spec Ultimate. Sharing the same body style and powertrain, the key specification differences are as follows:

PERFORMANCE
The Rexton powertrain employs an uprated 2.2 litre turbo diesel engine manufactured by SsangYong, which delivers maximum power of 181PS and maximum torque of 420Nm.  This highly efficient, extremely quiet and proven e-XDi220 engine delivers progressive acceleration from a standing start, and strong low-end torque typical of SsangYong power units. It achieves a CO2 emission level of 218 (NEDC) and economy of up to 32.9 mpg on the WLTP combined cycle and achieves 0-62mph in 11.9 seconds (auto) and 11.3 seconds  (manual). The power train has been proven to deliver outstanding output in the low to mid-range.

Transmission is either a 6-speed manual, or a Mercedes-Benz 7-speed automatic known for its smooth dynamic gear changing and durability.

  • Integrated transmission control unit (TCU) improves electronic control reliability
  • The latest controller area network (CAN) accelerates electronic signal exchange
  • Variable compression solenoid provides dynamic gear-shifting performance
  • Acceleration is increased by skipping gears when downshifting
  • Pendulum absorber broadens engine speed range
  • Slip control of the lock-up

4-WHEEL DRIVE
Rexton is an all-wheel drive offering superior driving stability across all types of terrain. It has an old fashioned, go anywhere, selectable 4-wheel drive system. The vehicles 4-wheel drive system draws on SsangYong’s years of experience in 4-wheel drive technology.  For better efficiency and greater fuel economy, the car features part time 4-wheel drive with power delivered permanently to the rear wheels.  Front wheel drive can be selected electronically as required with high ratio, and low ratio chosen as and when the off-road conditions become more demanding. 

With primary drive to the rear wheels, the ride, handling and driving stability are enhanced thanks to the well-balanced weight distribution, and a combination of double wishbone suspension at the front and 10-link independent suspension at the rear on models with automatic transmission deliver great ride-quality.

Part-time 4-wheel drive allows the driver to choose when to activate the system, depending upon changing road conditions. The vehicle normally runs in two-wheel-drive mode, and when necessary, the driver may switch the drivetrain over to either 4-wheel drive: high-speed (4H) or 4-wheel drive: low-speed (4L). In 4-wheel drive, the torque from the engine is distributed evenly for the front and rear wheels. In 2-wheel drive (2H) mode is preferred under normal operating conditions, 4-wheel drive high-range (4H) mode is used when the roads are icy or wet, or when driving off-road. In 4-wheel drive: low-range (4L) mode delivers the most torque, when maximum towing capacity is required.

The front-wheel-drive system excessively concentrates vehicular weight toward the front, whereas the rear-wheel- drive system distributes the weight appropriately front and rear, which improves handling stability. The rear-wheel drive advantages and 4-wheel drive function are maximised for optimal driving performance under diverse road conditions. The vehicular weight is concentrated on the rear wheels when starting out and accelerating, increasing the tyre grip on the drive wheels, which are in the rear, for better acceleration performance.

Front-wheel drive means the front wheels are both the drive wheels and used for steering. Thus, the driving trajectory will change for an instant when slowing down or speeding up during cornering, and this will detract from handling stability. A rear-wheel drive system lets the front wheels do only the steering, resulting in superior cornering performance.

Rexton has a front double-wishbone and rear multi-link suspension - advanced independent suspension in the rear and a double-wishbone suspension in front. The system provides optimal grip on uneven road surfaces for solid handling and the high-mounted upper arm enhances handling at high speed and ride quality. The conventional multi-link suspension system has three transverse links and one longitudinal link per wheel, while the upgraded version, with a total of five links, is found on high-end vehicles to ensure the best ride quality.

Ideal for those wishing to tow a double horsebox, large caravan or commercial trailer, the Rexton has a strong ladder chassis providing a substantial towing platform - a mighty towing capacity of 3,500kg, and a kerb weight of 2180 Kg, particularly important for anyone towing a heavy caravan.

It also features special electronic safety aids when driving off road such as hill start assist and hill decent control and is best-in-class for approach and departure angles of 20.5 degrees and 22 degrees respectively.

NOISE, VIBRATION AND HARSHNESS (NVH)
Rexton’s NVH levels are much improved over its predecessors, due to its stiffer body, improved aerodynamics to reduce wind noise, better engine isolation by means of hydraulic engine mounts, improved cabin sealing and lower road and tyre noise.

Advanced tools and technologies have been applied to Rexton to suppress NVH and it now boasts some of the lowest NVH levels in its class. Its cabin noise at idle is just 44.0dB and its chassis vibration at idle is 95.0Hz.

In a first for SsangYong, the automaker has used structural adhesives to improve monocoque rigidity, optimising noise and tonal qualities. Double-wide sealer has also been applied with melting-type plugs for improved engine and outside noise levels. Additional front and rear sub-frame mounting points have been added which act as decouplers inside the hydraulic mounts, which maximise noise reduction. Underfloor damping and additional roof paneling have added sound absorbing materials and pillar

cavities are filled with a volume of sound absorbing foam, reducing noise and vibration. The ultra-high strength quad frame creates the quietest possible interior precision tuning is carried out inside the wind tunnel at Pininfarina to optimise the Rexton’s aerodynamic performance.

The Rexton boasts the most body mounts in its class, improving ride quality and steering ability. The engine and suspension are mounted to the monocoque structure and frame. Noise from the road surface and engine is transferred to the chassis directly, where the frame blocks most of the noise.

Technological expertise as a specialist in SUV manufacturing has achieved car-like cabin quietness.

Conventional wheel housings are made from polypropylene, a commodity plastic material, but high end vehicles like Rexton, have wheel housing made from woven polyester (PET), with excellent sound absorbing properties that keep road noise from entering the cabin. Quadruple-layered seals are applied at the top and bottom of the doors and windows block out road noise and wind noise more effectively.

Rubber seals block the noise generated in the engine compartment improving the quietness of the cabin. Hydraulic engine mounts ate more effective in blocking out noise and vibration from the body resulting in the best ride quality.

ADVANCED SAFETY SYSTEMS
The Rexton is one of the strongest and safest vehicles in its class. It’s built on a high-strength body-on-frame construction and features a comprehensive suite of the latest electronic safety aids. It has extremely strong foundations - its body-on-frame construction is built using 1.5Gpa ultra-strength steel - a world first. In fact, 81.7% of the steel plate in the car’s body uses high-strength, high-density, high-tensile steel. This provides superb rigidity and protection in a collision to maximise the safe space within the cabin.

Rexton has been designed for optimal safety in a collision. Reinforcement has been added to reduce damage in a collision and its ultra-rigid quad frame delivers unsurpassed safety. The front bumper beam is made with 1.5 giga-pascal ultra-high-strength steel, the side members of 590FB ultra-high-strength steel, the cross members of 590FB ultra-high-strength steel and the rear bumper beam of 590FB ultra-high-strength steel.

Passenger safety has been a top priority for the SsangYong Rexton, a vehicles "crash zone" is where most of the force from a frontal collision is transferred to the occupants in the cabin. Rexton's crash zone is specially designed to absorb the brunt of the force, thereby protecting the people inside.

The SsangYong Rexton benefits from the latest in safety technology, its advanced features working to protect occupants, other road users and pedestrians, both in determining the risk of an impending accident and in the event of a collision.

Rexton comes with up to nine airbags including front, side and curtain airbags.  Other safety features include rain sensing wipers, automatic speed sensing door locks, a tyre pressure monitoring system, two-stage front seatbelt pre-tensioners with a warning reminder on all five seat belt positions, and ISOFIX fittings to outer rear seats, safety power windows, parking aid system. Rexton also comes as standard with a whole host of autonomous driving capabilities reduce collision risk.

  • Steering wheel - The steering wheel and steering column are designed to absorb the force of a collision, minimising the effect on the driver’s chest area
  • Airbags - Available with up to 9 airbags for maximum passenger protection on impact, the car is equipped with up to 9 airbags (ELX and Ultimate) - the most in its class. These include a knee-airbag for the driver and rear passenger side and curtain airbags – safety features normally only found in prestige vehicles

VIEW FROM THE TOP
Commenting on new model year Rexton, Nick Laird managing director of SsangYong Motor UK said: “Back in 2017, SsangYong set new standards for value-priced compact SUVs, with the launch of new Rexton. The updated 20-model year Rexton is further evidence of the brand’s re-generation after Mahindra made significant investments in the company.  It demonstrates the rapid progress being made as a specialist producer of 4x4s and SUVs. The Rexton is distinctive and stylish and boasts an array of advanced safety and infotainment technologies as well a large spacious cabin and cargo area.”

“SsangYong is Korea’s third largest SUV brand & has over 60 years-experience of making refreshingly different cars. Along the way, we’ve learnt a thing or two about what customers really need. So instead of wasting money on marketing gimmicks or add-ons, we offer a full range of truly refined & high-spec SUV’s that absolutely deliver on the road.”

“Our ‘badge’ may be less well known, but what SsangYong lacks in current recognition, we more than make up for with cars that offer huge value without ever feeling compromised. We also have so much faith in our build quality, that we offer a full 7-year/150,000-mile warranty so customers can be quietly confident that they’ve made the right choice when it comes to the things that really matter. We are sure that, with the new Korando, we have a vehicle that has the potential to upstage some much bigger names in the marketplace.”

Made in Korea
SsangYong cars are manufactured in South Korea by SsangYong Motor, which is 73 per cent owned by the Indian engineering conglomerate Mahindra & Mahindra and imported into the UK by SsangYong Motor UK.  Established in 1954 it is Korea's oldest vehicle manufacturer and only 4x4 and SUV specialist producer.  There are currently some 60 SsangYong dealers covering England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales, with new locations being added to the network all the time.
