After knowing about the new SsangYong Rexton debut in the Auto Expo 2018, it is now confirmed by the sources that the SUV is going to badge a Mahindra for the Indian market. It is also confirmed that this will remain in the name of Rexton. The SsangYong brand has some little value for the past few years and to enhance the brand they need some significant time and money investments.
Mahindra is capable of doing with the vehicle which is top in the market and the Rexton met the expectation of it by being in the top of the M&M’s passenger vehicle by lining above the flagship which is the existing XUV 500. The Mahindra Rexton will be made largely identical to the one which is selling around the globe but it will have some cosmetic changes to show the line up of the Mahindra design language.
Some of the adjustments of the vehicle include a new grille, different designs of the alloy wheel as well as changes in the interior trim. The Mahindra chooses some features to be equipped with the Rexton and also chooses some feature to leave out so that it will have a different approach as well as a unique attraction towards the customers.
Specifications Of Mahindra Rexton:
The vehicle which is selling globally consists of projector headlamps, 9.2 inch HD touch screen which is available with Android Auto and Apple Car Play, Camera of 360 degrees, LCD instrument cluster of 70 inches, cooled seats, Nappa leather upholstery and a smart tailgate as well. By having these amazing features, the Mahindra will have to choose the final price of the car to make it competitive.
The manufacturer aims to undercut the price of the Toyota Fortuner by Rs.4 lakh and to see the Rexton price range starting from Rs.24 lakh. The launch of this vehicle is expected to be in the last of this year which will be almost close to Diwali.
