I put this page up so that you can compare the 150 series LandCruiser Prado to the Ssangyong Rexton2. The Ssangyong Rexton is a rare sight on the road. There aren't many dealers if you really want to buy one.

The exterior of the Rexton is actually quite nice. It is clearly conservative with a few dramatic touches like the Mercedes like front end design. The side profile reminds us of a RAV4. In real life the Rexton looks big and different but not ugly.

The interior of the Rexton shows its age. It still uses old school quality materials and designs. It is tidy and quite acceptable considering its new very low price tag. There is plenty of space for 5 or 7 people. It does have hints of a Mercedes made in the 1990s.

Based on specifications Rexton seems like a decent SUV. Not many people know about it although its been around for years and not having much publicity.



SSangyong Rexton 2
150 Toyota LandCruiser Prado

The Rexton was a competitor to the old Prado and the Pajero but it has not been updated for years so has fallen in price and competitiveness. The Rexton is targeted at people wanting a relatively big 4WD for the price of a small one. Along with lots of equipment as standard you get a lot of car for a good price.

The Rexton's engines and basic frame are shared with the older Mercedes Benz ML which means it is OK and based on this link the Rexton should be able to last a reasonable reliable. Since the internet is the only people people complain about any car we decided will point out the better points.

It does have lots of safety equipment and traction control systems along with a proper 4WD system. The Rexton's engines are state of the art too. Surprisingly and dependent on which version you get, the Rexton has either a solid rear axle of independent suspension.
