Ssangyong a company recently, well not exactly recently taken up by Mahindra, have launched their first SUV or say Premium SUV for the Indian market on the same day as the Tata Storme, The Rexton is a vehicle which borrows Looks, Engine technology and Transmission from the Benz Family of cars and I like what I see. Visually it looks fabulous. The feature list is very exhaustive, and every feature from Manual Transmission to Auto and Plush interiors to GPS Navigation is available. Two variants has been introduced in the market namely as RX5 (Manual Transmission 4X4 Torque on demand Drivetrain) & RX7 (Auto Transmission All Wheel Drive).

Frankly the Ssangyong brand is not very well reputed one in the international scene and its inception in the Indian market will be scrutinized very closely, but Indiais a very forgiving market when it comes to adapting international brands. Therefore the majority of the prospective buyers will HOLD their decision till some concrete and definitive reviews are available from prestigious reviewers.
