The G4 SsangYong Rexton was spied testing in Nashik by Team-BHP reader Mayur Shinde recently. The Mahindra Rexton for India, also referred to as Mahindra XUV700 by some media outlets, was showcased at the 2018 Auto Expo in February with Mahindra badging. However, the official name is yet to be confirmed.

The Mahindra Rexton will look different slightly different from the G4 SsangYong Rexton seen on test in the spy shot here. As showcased at Auto Expo 2018, the Mahindra Rexton will have signature design cues. It will feature a two-tone gloss black/chrome upper grille with a chrome applique above it. The unique upper grille will consist of thick vertical chrome slats, gloss black thin vertical slats and gloss black frame.

The Mahindra Rexton will employ a 2.2-litre diesel engine good for 178 bhp and 420 Nm of torque. It pairs with a Mercedes-Benz-sourced 7-speed automatic transmission and a 4WD system for its version. The G4 SsangYong Rexton is also available with a cheaper, 6-speed manual transmission as well. It is unknown whether the Mahindra-badged version will include this option for a lower entry-pricing or not.

Noteworthy features of the Mahindra Rexton will include HID headlamps with LED DRL, 18-inch alloy wheels, electric sunroof, dual-zone automatic climate control, cognac brown leather upholstery, ventilated seats, 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with GPS navigation, electric parking brake, and 9 airbags.
