Mahindra Ssangyong G4 Rexton launch planned later this year
Mahindra Ssangyong G4 Rexton has been spied testing in Nashik recently. The test mule is the international version of the car and not the Mahindra branded one, showcased at the 2018 AutoExpo. This spy pic was shared on the TeamBHP forum.
The new generation G4 Rexton made its global debut at the 2017 Seoul Motor Show. It was showcased as a Mahindra branded car at 2018 AutoExpo. Mahindra confirmed that the car will make its India debut by 2018 end but, with a different name. There is a speculation that it will be named XUV700 but, nothing is confirmed.
The new generation Rexton features a completely different design than its predecessor and looks more matured & premium. Once launched, the car will be offered with a 2.2L diesel engine which will produce 178PS power and 420Nm torque. This will come mated to a 7 speed, Mercedes sourced, automatic gearbox. There is no word on manual version as yet.
Mahindra G4 Rexton features
The Indian version of all-new G4 Rexton will have features at par with its international sibling. It will get things like:
- Leather upholstery
- Ventilated seats
- Dual zone climate control
- Electric sunroof
- 8-inch infotainment system with navigation
- 9 airbags
- HID headlamps
- LED DRL’s
- 18-inch alloys.
Once launched in India, Mahindra’s version of G4 Rexton will take on the likes of Ford Endeavour, Isuzu MUX and Toyota Fortuner. If Mahindra ends up pricing the car well, it will have one more winner at hand similar to the XUV500.
