SsangYong launches new Rexton commercial
SsangYong has launched a commercial version of the latest Rexton W. Called the CSX, the 4x4 is priced at just £18,495 (not including VAT) and comes with five year unlimited mileage warranty.
The Rexton W is designed as a serious off-roader and has a body on frame construction for maximum strength, double wishbone and a five link rigid axle with coil springs at the rear.
The rear seats of the passenger Rexton W are replaced by a flat load area with a 2.2 cubic metre load area. Along with the high lifting tailgate there are two side doors. The load area is 1700cm long and 107cm between the wheel arches.
Power comes from a 2.0-litre diesel engine with 155PS and a useful 360Nm while there's a standard six-speed manual gearbox with a low range option. It can tow 3 tonnes so is ideal for pulling a horsebox or full-size caravan while the payload is 615kg.
The latest Rexton gets an updated cabin with aluminium-effect and chrome finishes along with soft-touch materials. The level of standard equipment is good with the CSX getting cruise control, air conditioning, electric and heated door mirrors, a leather covered steering wheel and gear lever, a CD & stereo plus iPod and Bluetooth connectivity. Safety kit includes ESP, hill descent control plus dual front and side air bags.
The standard five year warranty covers all major mechanical components including wheel bearings, suspension joints and bushes, steering joints, shock absorbers and even the audio system. Wearable components such as clutch discs and brakes are covered for one year or 12,000 miles and the battery and paintwork for three years.
