Better, Bolder, Braver: SsangYong Philippines Introduces the 2020.5 SsangYong Rexton

Better. Bolder. Braver. That’s how SsangYong Philippines describes the new 2020.5 SsangYong Rexton. The new Rexton receives a new round of design updates to mark its distinguished place on the Korean SUV Specialist’s lineup.

Featuring a new honeycomb grill design that tapers below the headlights, the Rexton’s new look emphasizes its distinct role as the flagship model that epitomizes the loftiest ideals of the SsangYong brand. With its commanding and majestic presence, the new Rexton is poised to become a compelling choice for the most discerning of SUV buyers.

The Rexton’s headlight bezel color is finished in an elegant Titanium Gray and the metallic luster of the headlight housings accentuates the refinement of SsangYong’s premier model. Premium exterior colors available for the new Rexton includes Marble Gray, Atlantic Blue, Fine Silver, Grand White, and Space Black. The new metallic shades create an exclusive and distinct look while reservedly less ostentatious.


Inside, the Rexton 4×4 features its unique Premium Brown Stitching quilted leather interior that has become a defining touch for the brand. Meanwhile, the Rexton 4×2 features seat ventilation for the driver and passenger seats, which brings the luxurious and comfortable cabin experience of the 4×2 closer to its top-of-the line 4×4 stablemate.

All Rexton variants offer heightened comfort and luxury with seating for seven, Dual Zone Climate Control system and dedicated air-conditioning vents for the 2nd- and 3rd-rows. LED interior lights make the cabin brighter while an 8-inch Touchscreen Infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto delivers crisp video and audio entertainment over six speakers optimally-installed around the quiet cabin.

Undoubtedly, the best seat inside the new 2020.5 SsangYong Rexton is the driver’s seat. The cockpit features a 4-spoke leather-wrapped steering wheel with spoke-mounted controls for the infotainment system and other functions; a start/stop push button system, a 7-inch Super Vision instrument cluster, 7-speed automatic transmission, and electronic handbrake with Auto Hold function.

The front power seats include memory settings and a walk-in feature that move the seat backwards automatically for easier ingress and egress. SsangYong added a 220-volt outlet provides a perfect source of power for small convenience appliances or chargers for long drives while new Rexton 4×4 owners get a smart key fob that can activate the headlamps and tailgate. The top-of-the-line 4×4 variant also gets six airbags, Anti-lock Brake System (ABS) and Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD) with Brake Assist, Electronic Stability Program (ESP) and Hill Descent Control (HDC).

Every 2020.5 SsangYong Rexton model now comes with FREE 5-year Preventive Maintenance Service (PMS) along with its existing 5-Year Vehicle Warranty. The worry-free maintenance program will include the costs of oil, parts, and labor for each of the scheduled PMS intervals for the next 5 years, or up to 100,000 kilometers, whichever comes first.

With an introductory price of P1,760,000, the 2020.5 SsangYong Rexton offers ownership experience befitting of a premium flagship SUV. “We are proud to unveil the most exclusive SsangYong SUV yet – the 2020.5 Rexton”, stated Japheth Castillo, president of SsangYong Philippines. “Our customers deserve a nameplate that not only comes with the confidence-inspiring ability of driving through any type of road surface, but doing so in style and refined comfort. The new SsangYong Rexton will surely deliver a more luxurious presence on the road and an even more value-laden ownership experience for our most discerning SUV clientele.”
