The Rexton is a stylish high quality 4WD Sports Utility Vehicle, which offers high standards of appointment, quiet on-road performance, car-like handling, and yet rugged off-road capability. It can be configured to seat seven people all facing forwards, or as a five seater for more luggage space.
The Rexton is available in two different versions, signified by its engine. The RX270 is powered by a 2.7 litre five cylinder direct injection common trail turbo diesel engine while the RX320 has a Mercedes-Benz licensed 3.2 litre six cylinder engine, both available with a Tremec five-speed manual transmission or a Mercedes T-tronic five-speed automatic.
The Rexton’s modern rounded styling immediately catches the eye, its sloping bonnet dominated by its futuristic headlights which have three separate projection elements behind a protective polycarbonate cover, separated by a simple three-slat chromed grille.
The Rexton has a strong ladder frame/chassis, with fully independent front-wheel double wishbone suspension while in the rear it has a rigid axle five-link system. Coil springs and double-acting gas pressurised shock absorbers are fitted all around.
