Mahindra absorbed the Korean car manufacturer Ssangyong last year. Since then we have been waiting for introduction of bigger, premium SUVs under the Mahindra-Ssangyong banner.We now have official confirmation that the first Ssangyong SUV coming to India will be the Rexton, which will be launched on October 17 – the same day as the Tata Safari Storme.

The Rexton W was unveiled at the 2012 Busan Motor Show in Korea and it is now on sale in 66 countries including European markets. The W stands for “Work of Art”. While we might not agree with the Ssangyong’sdescription, we will readily admit that the new model is much easier on the eyes than the Rexton II. Both new and old Rextonshave been caught testing in India for a while, also confirming that certain components from the older car will make it to the vehicle offered in India.

The new third generation Rexton gets an all-new frontend with projector headlamps and daytime LED lights, chrome grille, new bumpers with integrated fog lamps and LED indicators. The Rexton W looks more proportionate with black treatment around the bottom and wider with fared wheel arches. The rear of the SUV looks unexciting, but it is functional. It will comfortably seat seven people – keeping it aligned with the Mahindra range! – and still have some space in the boot. Overall the Rexton feels premium, something that it will need to compete with the likes of the Toyota Fortuner, Ford Endeavour, Chevrolet Captiva, Mitsubishi Pajero Sport, Hyundai Santa Fe and Renault Koleos.

Mahindra has not confirmed the tech spec of the Rexton W, but the word is that it will be powered by a new 2.0-litre four-cylinder diesel engine developing 152bhp and 367Nm of torque. Ssangyong will be banking on fuel economy of the SUV that is around 14kpl with 2WD and the automatic transmission for marketing. There is also a 200bhp version of the same engine which might be introduced in India later.

Just like all other Mahindra products, details will be kept under wraps till launch and we will be able to confirm variants only on 18 October. We will also get our hands on the car the same day, so stay tuned for the review of the Ssangyong Rexton.

Mahindra will undercut the competition on price to get sales for the new Korean brand. The Rexton will be imported to India as CKD and will be assembled at Mahindra’s Chakan facility. It will also be feature loaded like most vehicles from South Korea. Globally the new Rexton gets six airbags, ESP (Electronic Stability Program), ARP (Active Roll over Protection), UWS (Ultrasonic Warning System), cruise control, Bluetooth connectivity and Rain-sensing wipers.

The Rexton W will be launched across India in a phased manner.After the Mumbai launch it will immediately be made available in the metro cities of New Delhi and Bangalore. We expect Ssangyong Rexton prices to start around Rs 18 lakh (ex-showroom Maharashtra).
