SsangYong Rexton slashed by $3700

Sime Darby SsangYong Australia has reduced the entry five-speed manual 2.7-litre five-cylinder turbo-diesel Rexton RX270 XDi by over $3700 to $36,990 drive-away. Five-speed automatic transmission with manual function adds $3000. Metallic paint adds $300.

However, just two years ago, the Rexton RX270 XDi carried a drive-away price tag of around $46,800.

This latest seven-seater features cleaner styling with the removal of the side steps and rear spoiler and gains larger 18-inch alloy wheels fitted with Desert Dueller tyres.

Standard features on the RX270 XDi include stability and traction control, hill descent and roll-over control, anti-lock brakes and dual-zone climate control air-conditioning with rear ducting.

Additional features include body-colour bumpers, door handles and rear view mirrors, front fog lights, roof rails, 12-volt auxiliary sockets, CD player with MP3 compatibility, remote central locking, power windows, a multi-function leather steering wheel, an alarm, engine immobiliser and power level-adjustable headlights.

SsangYong Australia also has the higher-grade 2.7-litre five-speed automatic 2.7-litre turbo-diesel Rexton RX270 XVT SPR seven-seater for $48,990 drive-away, a saving of over $4500. Unlike the 2.7-litre 121kW turbo-diesel in the XDi the 2.7-litre turbo-diesel in the XVT gets a variable geometry turbocharger which boosts power to 137kW.

Torque also lifts from 340Nm to 402Nm. The XDi utilises a torque on demand four-wheel-drive system which under normal driving allocates drive to the rear wheels.

However, should slippage occur, drive is also directed to the front wheels. The XVT SPR has a more sophisticated permanent four-wheel-drive system and independent rear suspension.

Additional equipment on the Rexton SPR XVT over the XDi model includes full leather trim, power heated front seats, reverse parking sensors, auto-on headlights and rain-sensing windscreen wipers.

Despite a smaller dealer group SsangYong#8217;s sales in the first half of this year rose by 14.6 per cent over the same time last year while Rexton sales in the same period lifted by over 80 per cent, albeit from a low base.

SsangYong Australia is now hoping the expected announcement later this month of a new partner for the troubled Korean manufacturer will enable it to proceed with the launch of the new 2.0-litre turbo-diesel Korando C compact SUV before the end of the year.
