Earlier this month, we had reported that Mahindra has announced to roll out the first model under its Korean subsidiary, Ssangyong, the all-new 2012 Ssangyong Rexton SUV in the Indian market on October 17. And now two days before the official launch can get underway, Mahindra has activated the Indian specific website – SsangyongRexton.in – and has teased the SUV in a short video that says 'Coming Soon.'
The Indian automaker had first showcased the Rexton II model at this year's Auto Expo in New Delhi. However, OnCars.in got hold of the exclusive spy shots of the Rexton W – that is an updated version of the Rexton II – being tested on Indian soil – which, naturally confirmed our speculations that Mahindra will indeed bring in the newer Rexton W instead of the Rexton II model into the country.
Being a product from the Mahindra & Mahindra stables, it will be a value-for-money offering without doubt and is expected to compete with the likes of the Toyota Fortuner, the Pajero Sport, the Ford Endeavour and the Hyundai Santa Fe. The icing on the cake would be the price range though, which could start at a little more than the money you pay for a top-end XUV500. If Mahindra do manage to pull off that sort pricing, the carmaker could be looking at one more ridiculously successful SUV in their product portfolio.
Stay tuned to OnCars.in as we bring you all the latest news and information about the 2012 Ssangyong Rexton SUV.
