Ssangyong Rexton WThe jolly chaps at Overdrive have spotted the Ssangyong Rexton W doing testing rounds in Mumbai. The Ssangyong Rexton W is schedule for debut in India on the 17th of October.

While Mahindra’s strategy of introducing Ssangyong brand in India is very unclear, we do know that the Rexton W will be the torch bearer for the brand. It will soon be followed by the Korando C.

Both SUV models will be positioned above the current leader of the pack – Mahindra XUV500.

The Ssangyong Rexton W is 475 cm long, 190 cm wide, 184 cm tall, and the wheelbase stands at 283 cm. With those dimensions, the Rexton W is pitted bang on against the current kingpin - Toyota Fortuner. It features a comprehensively re-designed front fascia with exquisite details such as:

  • All-new chrome grill
  • 18-inch alloy wheels
  • Double barrel headlamps
  • LED DRLs
  • ORVM with turn indicators
  • Sporty tail lamps

We expect Mahindra to plonk a new 2-liter diesel engine that makes 154bhp. We're not sure if we'll see the older 2.7-liter diesel engine with 165PS. The transmission on offer might be a six-speed manual or a X-Tronic automatic. We are expecting a price tag of 20-25 lakh rupees on debut.
