    by V3Cars Team on Saturday, Oct 21 2017

    The second generation SsangYong Rexton SUV was unveiled in Korea earlier this year. SsangYong, the south Korean SUV manufacturing subsidiary of the Indian SUV leader Mahindra & Mahindra, chose to call it the Rexton G4 indicating it is as good as a fourth generation model. This is because the Rexton SUV received three good updates in the life-cycle of its first generation model. The Korean company has indeed done a good job on its new Rexton, which is its flagship model sitting above the Tivoli and the upcoming new Korando. The new Rexton has come with a complete new styling, which makes it look much more premium than before. The Rexton is thought to be serving the company’s purpose of revamping its brand image. Now, many more new images of the new-gen Rexton have been revealed.
