Sagar Parikh, I'm the international news editor at IndianAutosBlog.com. I love everything that has a steering wheel!

Will debut at the 2016 Paris Motor Show.

SsangYong introduced the current, third generation SsangYong Rexton in 2012, and now, it’s readying the fourth generation SsangYong Rexton. As the next-gen SsangYong Rexton’s development continues internationally, engineering mules have been spied in China, courtesy autohome.com.cn. The all-new Rexton will be unveiled at the 2016 Paris Motor Show.

The next-gen SsangYong Rexton’s exterior will be inspired by the SsangYong LIV-1 concept.

The heavy camouflage doesn’t reveal much of the exterior of the next-gen Rexton, but some redesigned elements are visible, such as rectangular headlamps, radiator horizontal grille and horizontal taillamps. The interior has also been revealed to some extent. The next-gen SsangYong Rexton apparently features a new three-spoke steering wheel and redesigned centre console. Also, there could be an electronic parking brake this time.

The next-gen SsangYong Rexton will spawn a new 1-tonne pickup truck also, and both these models’ exterior will be inspired by the Ssangyong LIV-1 (Limitless Interface Vehicle) concept. The pickup truck is being developed under the codename SsangYong Q200 and it will replace the Ssangyong Korando Sports.

The VW Amarok rival will be powered by a 178 bhp 2.2-litre diesel engine which will send power to the wheels via a 6-speed manual transmission. A 7-speed or 8-speed automatic transmission could be made available optionally, while a selectable four-wheel drive system and a locking differential will be fitted for off-road driving. The next-gen SsangYong Rexton, as per the Chinese publication’s report, will be available with 2.0- and 2.2-litre petrol and diesel engines, with an 8-speed automatic transmission.
