The contract hire SsangYong Rexton SUV has been revamped for 2021 with a new front end and improved equipment list.
It's still a spacious and well-made SUV that remains popular with those who want to tow, for example, caravans.
Indeed, SsangYong has introduced a more powerful engine, plus there's the introduction of a new eight-speed automatic gearbox.
The new transmission is a smooth-changing creation with efficient gears for reduced vibration and noise.
On top of this, the Rexton still comes with the market-leading and comprehensive seven-year, or 150,000-mile warranty.
The SsangYong Rexton car lease range now has an improved 2.2-litre turbocharged diesel engine.
It delivers power of 202 PS, with torque of 441Nm.
It's also a quiet unit with lots of low-end torque to deliver progressive acceleration.
Fuel economy is 34mpg, with emissions of 225g/km.
The Rexton line-up also has all-wheel drive with a selectable drive system.
The carmaker has many years of experience in delivering all-wheel drive technology and the latest Rexton has part-time four-wheel drive.
In day-to-day operations, the power is delivered to the rear wheels.
And, when needed, the power will be sent to the front wheels using either low or high ratios.
As mentioned, the SsangYong Rexton has a strong reputation for its towing abilities, whether that is a commercial trailer, caravan or even a double horsebox.
This is down to the strong ladder chassis that means the Rexton can tow up to 3,500kg.
There's also trailer sway control which improves the driving stability of the vehicle and the system will recognise and then stabilise any yaw movement.
Drivers have the choice of two infotainment systems, both include DAB radio, smartphone compatibility, a rear-view reversing camera and some models have satnav.
This is also a very safe SUV with a decent list of standard equipment including seven seats, alloy wheels, dual zone climate control as well as power-assisted steering.
Safety equipment includes autonomous emergency braking, rear and front parking sensors, lane departure warning and a speed limit warning.
The SsangYong Rexton is available to lease now and offers a value for money proposition for those who want a strong, well-made SUV.
