The strong and dynamic styling of the G4 Rexton got the inspiration from the majestic look of the Greek temple Parthenon. Rouged frontline combines with pronounce and dynamic character line along the sides to provide commanding appearance of an authentic SUV. Interior features an ideal sense of proportion, with the fundamentals that maintain the desired emotional appeal combined with the types and quality of finishing materials that provide luxurious feel. SsangYong’s prestige design emphasizes simplicity and directness through impressive details and shapes. A horizontal, wrap-around design has been applied overall to project a well-balanced effect.
The G4 Rexton powertrain uses a 2.2L e-XDi220 LET diesel engine and a Mercedes-Benz 7-speed automatic transmission. The highly efficient and quiet engine delivers a top-notch start performance and acceleration at a low to medium speed based on a strong low end torque which is typical of SsangYong engines. Precision tuning is carried out inside the wind tunnel at Pinifarina, a world class design and engineering company, to optimize the Rexton aerodynamic performance. Rexton rounded engine compartments rubber seals and block the noise generated in the engine compartment, improving the quietness of the cabin.
The first-rate power transmission performance and durability of the Mercedes-Benz 7-speed automatic transmission was already proven through various Mercedes-Benz models and in combination with the e-XDi220 engine, it delivers a smooth shift feel and responds quickly to enable a dynamic driving.
G4 Rexton is based on SsangYong’s long experience in the 4WD technology. Drivers may use two-wheel drive mode under regular driving conditions for riding comfort and efficient fuel consumption. 4WD mode can be selected when it is required for particular road surface conditions to improve traction. A combination of a front wheel double wishbone and a rear wheel multi-link independent suspension ensures a high level of driving stability and riding feel.
While most of the SUVs moving on to Monocoque (single shell) chassis, SsangYong continue to be with ladder frame chassis for extra safety and as an authentic SUV manufacturer. The all new Rexton G4 reengineered with the ultra-rigid Quad Frame chassis made of a 1.5GPa-grade advanced high-strength Giga Steel for the first time worldwide, provides top-level safety for passengers.
