It has all features needed for a luxury SUV. A high power output engine supported with latest technology, E-Tronic gearbox and other accessories such as cruise control etc makes it a high performance SUV. Varying torque ratio on 4x4 ie Torque On demand with low ratio and 5-Link rear suspension with antiroll bar enables to drive in any kind of road. In overall it assures and delivers as expected from the SUV of this kind.
The Ssangyong Rexton is the latest addition to the luxury SUV market in India and boasts of a very powerful engine. The engine has been made using the latest technology and is capable of delivering top-notch on-road performance. Features such as cruise control and E-Tronic Gearbox have contributed in making it one of the top SUV performers in India. The SUV can be comfortably driven on any road thanks to the 5-Link rear suspension.
To be very honest, the very name Rexton did not appeal to me that much. The perception changed magically when I saw the gigantic SUV having an outstanding stance. The Rexton W, the latest offering from Rexton, is very appealing and equally good is the drive. The driving experience was so similar to the Mercedes Benz M-Class. The W variant is incredibly eye-catching and elegant. The car looked so sporty and premium that it immediately stunned the onlookers.
Yes, it has superior looks, but I faced a problem with steering feed. The over- filter steering is suitable for the small gears, but not perfect for high gears when you require a good road feedback. If I ignore this then Rexton RX5 absolutely thrilled me in every aspect whether it is a high speed, off road capabilities or high overtakes. The car should be crowned as the finest sporty SUV.
Yes, the features are outstanding. The Rexton X7 Diesel carries 2.7 litre of inline cylinder engine giving out 184 bhp of power which is harnessed by 5-speed automatic gearbox. The mileage offered by the SUV is impressive and comes to 11.18kmpl. The ride quality is extremely supple and it was able to handle bad roads comfortably. The huge list of premium safety features such as presence of rear and front parking sensors, child safety door lock, dual airbags and the traction control system is noteworthy.
Well, I have only one verdict to pass on Rexton RX6. The premium SUV from the stable of Mahindra creates a great style statement since it has all the high-end safety features. The car is very lavish, sporty and is competitively priced. The seats are very comfortable and it feels more like a home in the car. The RX6 has distinctly imposing look with the chromium grille. The car cabin also bears a unique, novel and fresh appearance.
The best decision I took in my life was to buy Rexton RX7. It was the step in the right direction since it offered the manual transmission to the driving enthusiast like me. The transmission has the capability of 4x4 and buying this car full of vibrant features was a profitable deal. It has everything- airbags, proper braking system, traction control, child safety locks, less fuel warning signal, door ajar warning, Bluetooth, good ventilation, cruise-control and many more.
