Spy Shots: new Ssangyong Rexton SUV testing in China
Published on January 31, 2012 by Tycho de Feijter
New spy shots from the new Ssangyong Rexton SUV testing on Chinese roads. The new Rexton will debut in South Korea later this year. It will then go to India first to satisfy the new Indian owner Mahindra, it will be made in India from CKD-kits. Late this year it will be listed on the China car market as an import from South Korea.
Chinese media expects the price to start around 200.000 yuan. Whether it will be a success is however doubtful. Ssangyong still doens’t have a decent patrol engine and the new 2.0 turbodiesel simply won’t sell because in many of China’s big cities diesel engines are forbidden.
Spy shots show a neat medium-sized SUV. Well, it can’t be that hard to design something better than the current Rexton II…
