4x4 Magazine names SsangYong Rexton 'Best Value 4x4' for fifth consecutive year
Jan 13, 2022
SsangYong’s flagship SUV Rexton has collected the ‘Best Value’ 4x4 accolade for an unprecedented fifth consecutive year in 4x4 Magazine's 4x4 of the Year awards, sponsored by BFGoodrich.
Alan Kidd, editor of 4x4 Magazine, commented; "Each autumn, 4x4 of the Year comes around and one of the big questions is whether anything is going to be able to take the Best Value award away from the Rexton. And the big answer is always no.
"It actually had stronger competition than ever before this year. But it's still up there, showing the rest of the market what value for money looks like. That's half a decade's worth of Best Value awards on the trot now – I never thought I'd see the day when I was saying something like that!"
The SsangYong Rexton
Heralding major advances in style, quality, safety and technology for the brand, the Rexton, SsangYong’s flagship SUV 4x4 was updated in 2020. Impressing with its sheer presence and beautifully balanced exterior, Rexton is a large D/E-segment four-wheel drive offering a prestige cabin for passengers to travel in supreme comfort, while disguising its tough and rugged off-road capability.
Representing a huge step forward in every area - looks and style, interior ambience, structure and safety, performance and technology, this new car stays true to SsangYong’s core brand values with extremely competitive pricing.
An authentic 4x4, the vehicle is powered by a 2.2 litre turbo Euro 6 diesel engine delivering maximum power of 202PS and maximum torque of 441Nm with 8-speed automatic transmission, and features a 3.5 tonne towing capacity, the benchmark for those who tow large caravans & trailers.
Stylish inside and out, the new car has gracious looks, and with a contemporary interior. Built using a modern and very strong body-on-frame construction, it is extremely safe and comes equipped with a comprehensive suite of electronic safety aids, and up to nine airbags. With the latest in connectivity and technology, new Rexton features Apple CarPlay and Google Android Auto, an HD 9.2” navigation screen and 3D ‘around-view’ monitoring.
Kevin Griffin, managing director of SsangYong Motor UK, responded: “Winning one ‘best value’ award is quite an achievement, but five times in a row is testament to how fantastic Rexton is. Both Musso and Rexton continue to win awards which speaks volumes about the SsangYong product range. The SsangYong brand has always represented all-round value, which is expressed as low price, high levels of equipment, great build-quality, and a 7-year/150,000-mile warranty. We are absolutely delighted!”
This fourth generation Rexton draws on SsangYong’s heritage and deep experience of building 4x4 vehicles over 65-years, and as well as its highly competitive pricing and comprehensive list of standard equipment, features a 7-year/150,000mile warranty.
