The second generation SsangYong Rexton will be launched in India soon as Mahindra G4 Rexton in India. As seen at the 2018 Auto Expo, the vehicle will carry a new Mahindra badging, along with a fresh set of cosmetic and feature upgrades. The vehicle will be locally assembled to keep it competitively priced. The SUV is likely to get a new name at the time of launch, which is likely to be around the festive season this year.
Mechanically, the Mahindra G4 Rexton will be powered by a 2.2-litre, four-cylinder diesel engine that generates 185bhp of power and 420Nm of torque. The engine will come mated to a seven-speed torque-converter automatic gearbox. At the time of launch the SUV will get an optional four-wheel drive system. The company has worked on the suspension, ride height and handling to make the SUV better suited for Indian road conditions.
As seen at the 2018 Auto Expo, the new Mahindra G4 Rexton measures 4,850mm in length, 1,960mm in width, and 1,825mm in height. Based on the ladder-frame chassis the new model is considerably larger than the older generation model. The company claims to offer a stiffer and lighter chassis compared to the previous model with high-strength steel (HSS) construction. The SUV gets a tweaked grille which is in-line with the Mahindra’s design ethos.
As for the interior, the new G4 Rexton will get nappa leather upholstery, a 9.2-inch HD touchscreen with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, 360-degree camera, 7.0-inch LCD instrument cluster and cooled seats. The new Rexton comes loaded with equipment and projector headlamps.
