New SsangYong Rexton Ultimate Plus available from £45,495

New range-topping version of SsangYong Rexton gets extra equipment as standard


The Rexton sits atop SsangYong’s SUV lineup and now the Korean firm has bestowed it with a new Ultimate Plus trim level which “adds even more luxury, yet retains value for money”. 

SsangYong launched the facelifted Rexton last year, which included revised bumpers front and rear and more technology as standard. Improving on the two-strong Ventura and Ultimate Rexton lineup is the Ultimate Plus – which is available to order now from £45,495.

For the extra £4,715 over the Ultimate, the new Ultimate Plus features 20-inch alloy wheels, auto-dipping mirrors, a powered sunroof and metallic paint. Inside, you’ll find quilted leather and suede seats, a 3D 360-degree monitoring camera, a memory driver’s seat and a wireless phone charger. 

The 12.3-inch driver’s display is also standard, as is the 9.2-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity. The Ultimate Plus is still a seven-seater and for the rear-most seats, there’s third-row air-conditioning.  

Mechanically, the Rexton Ultimate Plus is unchanged. Only one powertrain is available now – a 2.2-litre turbocharged diesel with 199bhp and 441Nm of torque. 0-62mph takes 11.9 seconds. Power is sent to the rear wheels during normal driving and should the front lose traction then the four-wheel drive system is engaged. A new seven-speed auto from Hyundai replaces the old seven-speed auto from Mercedes found in the pre-facelift model. 

The Rexton Ultimate Plus also receives SsangYong’s lengthy seven-year/150,000-mile warranty.
