Technologies Ultimate performance on and off road
High-end features to enhance efficiency and maximize the fun of driving
Created by SsangYong, a highly experienced 4WD manufacturer, Rexton's overall structure is designed for stable on road and off road driving. New power train and proven drive train with advanced technologies provide the greatest driving experience you can expect from a real off-roader.
A strong new heart
Performance now better than ever
Rexton's new power plant, the 2200cc RX220e-XDi which delivers up to 178 ps output, is Euro 6-compliant. Maximum torque is kept within the 1,400-2,800pm range.
The XDi engines are able to run at their best even when the driving conditions are poor. The use of low-viscosity motor oil (5W 30), which satisfies the extreme testing environments of Mercedes-Benz, makes oil changes less frequent, while an innovative multi-twister system lowers motor oil consumption considerably.
Step up a gear! Quality manual or automatic transmission to suit any driving style
6-speed manual transmission
Using a wide spread of ratios, the 6-speed manual gearbox has been developed to improve launch acceleration while also offering low-engine-speed high-economy running at motorway pace. Efficiency and durability have also been improved by optimising oil lubrication, while particular engineering attention has been paid to reduce gear whine at all speeds.
7-speed AT from Mercedes
The 7-speed G-tronic automatic transmission, built with Mercedes-Benz technology, provide smooth and quiet operation. The advanced AI programme monitors the vehicle’s operational status and can anticipate the driver’s intentions, while optimal gear changing delivers the best driving performance at high speed and improves fuel efficiency.
Dynamic driving, comfortable ride
Saloon smoothness, SUV sturdiness
The Rexton W incorporates the same advanced technologies found on luxury saloons to deliver outstanding handling and the best possible ride. Traveling in this SUV promises to be a pleasure for driver and passengers alike.
Advanced suspension systems for a safe and pleasant ride
Front wheels: Double wishbone suspension
The front wheels are suspended by lower and upper arms to maintain optimal wheel contact for better driving stability. Ride smoothness is further enhanced by dual action gas-filled shock absorbers, stabiliser bar and coil springs.
Rear wheels: 8-link indipendent suspension
The Rexton W employs the same advanced suspension systems found on many luxury saloons to achieve the superior damping essential to both handling and ride comfort. Each link performs a specific wheel locating task to ensure constant steering stability and superior handling amid changing road conditions. Moreover, the wheels move independently of one other, reducing chassis movement on rough surfaces and maintaining optimal wheel control at all times.
Part-time 4WD: Experience the authentic SUV performance
Part-time 4-wheel drive is simple and offers great drivability. Normally, the vehicle is driven by the rear wheels only, lowering fuel consumption because of the lower rolling resistance. The driver can switch the transaxle to four-wheel drive while the vehicle is in motion whenever additional traction is required.
Normal road conditions 2WD High-gear Mode
Under normal driving conditions 100 per cent of the engine’s torque is driving the rear wheels so that the Rexton can run with the highest efficiency.
Snowy & icy road conditions 4WD High-gear Mode
Whenever additional traction is needed, the driver can switch the transaxle to four-wheel drive while the vehicle is still in motion. The technology also comes into play when pulling away on a steep slope, allowing the Rexton to drive off from a standstill smoothly and safely every time.
Slippery inclines & heavy off-road conditions 4WD Low-gear Mode (4WD Lock)
Use the 4WD lock mode to manually force the spread of power between the front and rear wheels at speeds below 40 km/h. The locking differential is a must for any camper or nature lover, as it's widely used on boat ramps and rocky areas of off-road.
Safety Solid platform - a safety fundamental
Maximum protection in a collision
Rexton W is designed to withstand impacts and disperse impact force most effectively in order to ensure the safety of all occupants. The front crossbar is bolted onto the frame, and both the front and rear bumpers are reinforced for better impact absorption in head-on or rear-end collisions. The overall chassis is also fortified with high tensile-strength steel plate. Inside, the driver is safeguarded by a collapsible steering column, seatbelt with pretensioner and load limiter and airbags.
Reliable protection Greatest strength and more
The ultra-rigid frame, which features triple-layer construction, is built to absorb and disperse shocks and impacts of all kinds. This means less vibration during normal operation, longer durability overall and greater safety in a collision.
Front and side airbags
In case of collisions or accidents, the occupants are protected by frontal airbags and side-impact airbags.
Side impact bars
Door impact steel beams for optimal mechanical protection in case of side collision.
Smart active safety A profusion of systems for accident prevention
In control under any circumstance
Rexton W is equipped with cutting-edge active safety systems, including the Electronic Stability Program, which integrates the electronic brake-force distribution, the antilock braking system, brake-assist system, traction control system, and active rollover protection.
Hill Descent Control (HDC)
When the downward gradient reaches 10% or more, the HDC assumes braking duties and maintains slow and steady vehicular movement. The driver can focus solely on steering.
Electronic Stability Program (ESP)
The sophisticated Electronic Stability Programme monitors road conditions and vehicular status, ready to adjust engine output and brake force automatically should the driver be in danger of losing control on wet or icy surfaces or in sharp turns at high speed.
Preventing under-steering or over-steering accidents
Preventing a rollover
Brake Assist System (BAS)
The BAS is designed to help frailer drivers to apply the brakes sufficiently in an emergency. The amount of force being put on the brake pedal is measured electronically and supplemented automatically when necessary, helping to prevent an accident.
Active Rollover Protection (ARP)
The ARP system intervenes when the vehicle’s lateral force becomes excessive such as when veering too sharply or making a sharp U-turn. Brake force and engine output are adjusted appropriately to keep the vehicle upright.
Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)
The TPMS (Tyre Pressure Monitoring System) measures tyre pressure constantly and when abnormality is detected issues an alert to the driver that reflects the degree of urgency.
Obstacle Detection System
Four sensors on the rear bumper minimise the blind spot for the driver. They help to prevent mishaps while parking the vehicle. The digital sensors can match the color of the bumper paint for better styling.
Child safety No compromise!
Isofix anchorage and automatic door lock
We all want to keep our children safe and secure. The ISOFIX system provides a more secure and easier way of attaching child seats in cars. The ISOFIX international standard is applied in Rexton W for ultimate child safety and comfort. For even better protection of all the occupants, the speed-sensing door lock is activated automatically when the vehicle reaches a speed of 50 km/h.

Note: Make sure children are properly buckled up in a car seat, booster seat, or seat belt, whichever is appropriate for their age, height and weight.
