Ssangyong Rexton W : Road Test

by Muntaser Mirkar Photography : Kunal Khadse Posted on 26 Dec 201286,314 Views21 Comments

The Ssangyong Rexton is here and it's getting into a crowded market with SUVs that have been fighting it out for a while for supremacy. But is there something special up its sleeve that'll help Mahindra get a jump on the competition?

Is all well then?

As long as you’re on the lookout for an urban SUV that will give you a lot of bang for your buck, the Rexton fits the bill perfectly. But that doesn’t mean the vehicle itself is perfect – like all things on this planet we do not live in an ideal world and this SsangYong does have its weak points. While the seats themselves are plush and comfortable, and there’s lots of room all round, the seat height may be an issue for tall  occupants in the middle row. 

 

The bench is mounted a tad low and that means you sit with your knees sticking ever so slightly up and that leaves a little under-thigh support to long for. It gets even more accentuated in the third row which is pretty much mounted like a mughal-style sofa more than a car seat. Then there’s that issue with the gearbox that we spoke about earlier and one thing that started to irritate us a bit was the windscreen wiper doing a quick swipe every time you turn the ignition on – without spraying any water.

All that can be ignored though because what the Rexton W RX7 gives you in under Rs 20 lakh is a great car for the tarmac with features you won’t tire boasting about to your mates. It may not be the greatest off-roader on the planet but that isn’t what the Rexton was conceived to be in the first place. This is a car for urban swank and that it has plenty of.
