This SUV is the most luxurious SsangYong ever

KG Mobility, formerly (and still, in Australia) known as SsangYong, has revealed a new flagship version of its Rexton SUV.

Previewed by the Rexton Limousine concept at last year’s Seoul motor show, the Rexton Summit ditches the second- and third-row benches of the regular SUV.

In their place are two Nappa leather-upholstered, power-adjustable second-row seats, which can recline by 140 degrees and slide by 16.8cm.

These are separated by a console with a refrigerator, touchscreen and wireless phone charger, while ahead of the chairs are pair of 14-inch screens that allow passengers to watch streaming services like Netflix.

The company also says the Rexton Summit uses a “super surround system”, though the translated spec sheet only makes note of a six-speaker system.

The interior is offered in either Snow Beige or black.

The Korean brand also says the Rexton Summit has a “newly designed acceleration logic and a power booster to enable smooth yet explosive acceleration”, as well as retuned suspension and 20-inch “low-noise” all-terrain tyres.

We’ve contacted SsangYong Australia to confirm if there are any plans to bring this model to Australia.

The Rexton recently received an update, bringing a new dashboard design with a larger, free-standing 12.3-inch touchscreen display and touch-capacitive climate control switchgear.

The company says the Rexton has new lower body mounts to give it a “more rounded feel from secondary ride inputs”.

Australian-market models, however, continue to miss out on features like adaptive cruise control which are offered in Korea.
