SsangYong has introduced a new range-topping model will be joining the Rexton W line-up.

The South Korean manufacturer says the five-seat Rexton W ELX gets a number of “significant enhancements” over the EX model. These include a new beige-grey leather interior - seats, door trims and matching carpets, a new multi-function leather covered steering wheel and updated instrument cluster. There are also new 18-inch Diamond cut alloy wheels, as wells as LED daytime running lights integrated in the headlights, front parking sensors, auto-dipping rear view mirror, heated rear seats and a satellite navigation.

The Rexton W is built on a steel ladder chassis and is powered by the company’s own 2.0-liter turbo diesel engine that delivers 155 PS at 4,000rpm and a maximum torque of 360Nm between 1,500 and 3,000 rpm. The unit can be mated to either a 6-speed manual transmission or a 5-speed Mercedes-Benz-sourced automatic.

Pricing for the new ELX trim level starts at 27,995 GBP.
