These are the first official electronically processed images of the new SsangYong Rexton (internal code Y400), the model will be the crown of the range of older construction of Korean vehicles. Sales of the world, as in Greece, will start after the summer.
The model draws its design inspiration from the Parthenon, which is the most classic benchmark of world architecture. The new Rexton based architecture with the engine forward and back movement, a new framework that uses Quad-Frame technology has developed in collaboration with POSCO, the largest steel producer in the N. Korea. The new frame (ladder) of the new Rexton uses, for the first time in the world, steel ultra-high strength (giga-steel) 1,5 Gpa (giga pascal). Furthermore, use of 63% of advanced high strength steel to provide high strength in combination with a limited weight.
By combining the above features, the new Rexton is designed to offer a mellow driving experience, with good grip, equal weight distribution on both axles, excellent off-road performance, with superior traction capacity and very limited indicator NVH (Noise, Vibrations, Harshness) as it emerges from the use of a ladder frame and not one piece (monocoque). This option ensures better cushioning, apart from the data better resistance to off-road challenges. Furthermore, studies have shown that the specific frame type to large SUV ensures better behavior in conflicts regarding the protection of passengers, as efficiently absorbs crash energy.
