Mahindra SsangYong Rexton to be launched near Diwali - spotted testing again

Mahindra SsangYong Rexton has been spotted testing couple of times and this makes us speculate that the car would be launched some where near Diwali and will be capitalizing upon the festive bash.

The new Rexton W was showcased at the Busan Auto Show in May 2012 with a 2-liter turbodiesel engine that comes with the option of a twin-turbo. The availability of the newly developed engine in India at launch is still a big unknown, though the test mules caught here appears to be wearing the RX270 badge, connoting the pre-facelift’s 2.7-liter Mercedes-sourced diesel engine under the bonnet. The Rexton was also showcased at Auto Expo 2012.

As far as the feature list goes, seems like Mahindra has studied the market properly and thus has decided to include Smart Key, Cruise Control, Rain Sensing wipers and Bluetooth connectivity as few of the gadgets providing convenience and entertainment to the occupants of this seven seater.

The Rexton W will be assembled in India and priced to compete with the Fortuner and Captiva. We expect Mahindra to introduce the Rexton W during Diwali. The Rexton W, Mahindra would be hoping, is another XUV500 in the making however will place this SUV above the XUV 5OO.
