Driving report Ssangyong Rexton E-XDI 220: A colossus from Korea: The giant can do that with a G-class crucial

  • Site author Stefan Grundhoff

While everyone relies on plug-in hybrids and electric cars, the freshly revised Ssangyong Rexton seems to be the relic of an almost forgotten time. However, do not forget that the Rexton is a really great off -road vehicle that can stand a lot.

Visually, a bit has changed, but the Rexton can also be recognized as a real Kraxler with the nobler face. Large, high, lots of space, lots of ground clearance and 3.5 tons of trailer load – the off -road fans shine this. The fans of the Korean G-Class have to be very fond of animals and in particular have a heart for horses, because those responsible always attach great importance to the fact that the trailer load of 3.5 tons is one of the most important reasons for purchase. It does not need a trailer coupling to be enthusiastic about the Ssangyong Rexton, because it is a car that can really be used to stand out in road traffic. There are no longer many of these character-strong cars, because the Land Rover Defender has now become more of a real discovery and the Mercedes G-Class is not just because of its price structure in completely different regions. At most, the Jeep Wrangler or the Toyota Land Cruiser remains – but no one offers so much off -road vehicles for so little money with premium entitlement.

Powerful and relaxed

With the model maintenance, there was a slight refreshment for the drive, because the 2.2 liter Commonrail diesel now has 149 kW / 202 hp and a maximum torque of 441 Nm. Of course, the 4.85 meter long mountaineer would be better a soft, whispering six-cylinder diesel, but the 2.2-liter cylinder quartet is anything but misunderstood even if it could be quieter and running. The maximum torque is already low 1.600 tours and the new eight -level automatic automatic eights do the rest so that it is powerfully and equally relaxed uphill or just go straight ahead. The maximum speed is okay at 184 km/h as the standard consumption with 8.2 liters of diesel per 100 kilometers.

In the driving operation, the Ssangyong Rexton makes no secret of the fact that it is a real off -road vehicle with a rustic conductor frame, because the coordination of feathers and dampers is tight to wood. Therefore, you should think carefully about whether the optional 20-inch wheel set of the noble equipment variants is the right choice. With the standard 18-inches, the package is tight enough to do without the remaining comfort. Unusual and everything else: the all-wheel drive can be switched off and switched off via a rotary switch on the middle tunnel. This should work automatically and if necessary in the vote of the driving program. Typical for a real off -road vehicle: the terrain reduction if it should be particularly difficult in hard off -road insert.

Optional third row of seats

Inside is the Ssangyong Rexton chic and well made. One or the other decorative seam on the electrical leather seats appears somewhat ambitious for an off -road vehicle without luxury entitlement, but you sit comfortably and the space is always very neat in front and in the back. The Korean is available for 900 euros surcharge with a third row of seats. If the third row of seats is not needed, more than an impressive 820 liters are available to loading space, which are 1 by folding the fund seats to 1.Have 977 liters expanded. The Rexton variant decides how much equipment it should be. It starts at the Cyrstal for 42.990 euros. The versions of Quartz and Sapphire for 47 are likely to be much greater popularity.590 or 52.Please 990 euros, but both of them still leave a few wishes open. However, the Elegance package remains quite expensive for 4.000 euros extra details a full leather equipment, a 360-degree camera and an electric tailgate offers. This should be just as standard for all models as the new driver assistance systems. For all versions on board: a five -year guarantee up to 150.000 kilometers with a corresponding mobility package.

  1. 3500 kg trailer ?
    With the weight of almost 2500 kg + 3500 kg trailer and then a 2.2 l diesel with approx. 200 … PS and then longer uphill stretches ? I have a Renault Koleos with 2.0 l diesel and 180 hp and it gets hot with long steeper motorway routes with approx. 1600 kg on the hook and 1700 kg weight. That’s why I still have a Mercedes GL 420 CDI with 4.L, V8 and 360 PS bought to travel relaxed by caravan. The Rexxon has almost the same weight as the Mercedes GL. He certainly cuts a good figure for the trip to the daycare center !

  2. Worth considering.
    The car is not a new invention- and the Asians are a fixed size. The Rexton does not take much compared to European cars GLS and Co.Naive who does not include the Asians in a comparison. Someone screws the thing together and feeds us so that his family feeds. The mechanic in Sindelfingen, Zuffenhausen or Munich is also no closer than the mechanic in Mexico, China or Korea – I don’t know everyone. The main thing is that the product is good and here in the test the Rexton comes away above average well. Why not treat yourself to a Rexton as the last combustion engine ..

  3. Ssangyong
    Another niche vehicle, at least in Germany. Not even nice to look at. But that was always the problem of this brand and probably the reason why it is less common than a Turkish only child.

  4. Yes I understand
    Nothing speaks against it, Mr. Harper. Basically it is even nice that there is such a variety of vehicles, there is something for everyone. Mine would not be such a Ssangyong, especially since you can already get a good loss of value, just because they are not in demand. But if you never want to sell, it doesn’t matter.
