Seven-seats, a magic word in the Philippine auto industry. This phrase will have people clamoring for the brochures of the latest model, but a returning brand in the Philippines wants you to know about its latest contender to fight in the arena of midsize SUVs.
SsangYong is a brand that made its debut back in the day, but the South Korean company is making a comeback here in the Philippines and introducing a car that may even rival the likes of well-established brands and their offerings. The latest model to be released to the general public was the SsangYong Rexton. The SUV was designed from the ground up to be a people mover with off-road capabilities.
A spacious cabin can be credited to the vehicle’s width and wheelbase. Coming in at 1,950mm wide and 2,855 mm long, cabin space is abundant, without the sacrifice of ride quality and comfort.
The Korean SUV boasts features that put it ahead of the competition, or so SsangYong claims. 4x4 and 4x2 variants are available, and creature comforts are plentiful. Goodies such as the ventilated and heated brown leather seats add to the lushness of the interior.
Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for easy connectivity are also included. This helps ensure a safer drive in the digital age because vital information can be displayed on its head unit. A 7-inch Super Vision instrument cluster also helps disseminate vital vehicle information to the driver.
The SUV is powered by a 2.2L diesel engine with e-VGT which can churn out 181 hp and 420 Nm of torque, enough to contend with the harder pulling rivals in its class. The top-of-the-line 4x4 variant rolls on a set of 20-inch wheels, while the 4x2 rolls on a set of 18-inchers. Six airbags are present on the top trim which helps keep occupants safe in situations of extreme danger.
The Rexton is available now in SsangYong showrooms. SsangYong Berjaya Motor Philippines offers the Rexton with a 100,000km warranty and a free 3-year periodic maintenance service schedule. Servicing this vehicle only requires a 6-month interval or 10,000 km, whichever comes first. SsangYong also offers a mobile service van as long as the unit is within 100 kilometers of a SsangYong dealership.
