The ‘Rexton RX6’ comes with 5-speed manual transmission on the 2.7 L RX270 XDi engine and a range of luxurious & high tech features. The high-end features include premium leather upholstery, electrical sunroof, 8-way electrically adjustable driver’s seat with memory function, automatic headlights, rain sensing wipers and intelligent 4x4 Torque on Demand (TOD) system.

Speaking on the launch of the ‘RX6’ model of the SsangYong Rexton, Vivek Nayer, CMO, Automotive Division, M&M, said, “As a customer-centric organization, we continuously take feedback from consumers and update our products to cater to their evolving needs. One such feedback from customers was the need for high-end and luxurious features in a manual transmission model. The launch of the Rexton RX6 is a step in this direction and will give driving enthusiasts a manual transmission with 4x4 capabilities, along with high-end features.” 

The 2.7 litre RX270 XDi engine (5-cylinder common rail, turbo diesel engine), produces 162 Bhp power and 340 Nm torque. The 5-speed manual gearbox also offers an intelligent and efficient 4X4 system – Torque on Demand (TOD) with a low ratio for serious off-roading. 

The SsangYong Rexton by Mahindra is currently available in two models - RX5 and RX7. The RX5 is an entry level manual transmission model and the RX7 is the top-end model with E-tronic automatic transmission with Mercedes Benz technology.
