^ Don't go by the manufacturer declared figures. The actual offroad usable ground clearance in Rexton is inferior to Fortuner, Pajero Sport and Endeavour(except ramp breakover angle). My concern is with low placed Fibre fuel tank with no protection, placed at an vulnerable spot. Side foots steps are look awesome but are placed very low, prone to damage at slightest offroading attempt.

4wd system is pretty good, unless you need a locked 4H(Dunebashing and other uses), the marked 4H is TOD mode, which is unpredictable when it comes to activation.

The 5 cylinder engine is a gem, keeps getting smoother with age, great mid range poke with good choice of gearing ratios.

This is a good move as the RX5 sported even lesser features than the Scorpio VLX. Still the brand is too unknown to command such a premium price.

He was speaking to presspersons after launching the new SsangYong Rexton ‘RX6’, a five-speed manual transmission version with 14 new features, including electric sunroof with tilt/open function, speed sensitive power steering, memory functions with three presets for driver seatand rain-sensing wipers. On the safety front, it came with electronic stability programme, front and side airbags, anti-slip regulation and active rollover protection, apart from hill descent controls, he pointed out. The RX6 that comes in satin white, volcano black, moondust silver and opulent purple colours, is priced at Rs.20.11 lakh ex-showroom Hyderabad, where it was first launched, he said, In addition to the existing range of Rexton SUVs it came with a 2.7 litre engine with 162 bhp power and 340 torque that included an intelligent 4 X 4 torque on demand system with low ratio switch.

With the likes of Toyota Fortuner ruling this segment, and alternates available like Mitsubishi Pajero Sport and Ford Endeavour, I really doubt the future of Ssangyong Rexton R6 and R7. The company should really look at reducing the cost and bring it to sub 18 lakh category. That might really help them boost their sales.

You might want to have a look at the sales figures as well.

Any news on Rexton coming with the new 2 litre engine that Mahindra had showcased at the Auto Expo 2014? That may give it the required boost as the ageing 2.7 Mercedes engine is pretty old school and noisy

That 2.7 engine is one of the top strengths of Rexton. Do you seriously find it noisy? Which according to you is a more refined engine in this segment(chassis based SUVs)?

I really love the Engine and manual gearbox in Rexton, i am sure the VGT version with Manual transmission will be much better. I do find the powerband narrow compared to my XUV's mhawk.

I haven't looked under this car, you think, you can add a protection plate? Should that be enough after side steps removed? Not for OTR's but kacchaa culverts, mud roads with deep approach & departure angles or trails. No OTR's & mud stuff.

And have driven the RX-5 as well the RX-7. I find the engine, as well as drivability superior to few other SUVs.

Mercedes 2.7 Noisy? At idle its more silent than the swift 1.3 DDIS. Its got no vibrations at all.

I drove one recently. A friends. What a smooth drive. Minimum roll and see saw movement unlike the fortuner.

And what effortless power.

That Mercedes engine and gearbox is a gem!
