This third generation Rexton, will create a strong connect with premium SUV buyers in India thanks to its sophisticated styling, luxurious interiors, superior handling and on and off-road performance. Indian buyers can also look forward to a high-performance diesel engine powering the Rexton. It will combine sophistication and refinement, luxurious passenger comfort, high quality performance and the ride and handling of a high-end SUV.

Commenting on the upcoming launch, Dr. Pawan Goenka, President, Automotive and Farm Equipment Sectors, Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd. & Chairman, SsangYong Motor said, “The launch of the much acclaimed XUV500 last year helped Mahindra stamp its presence on the segment of premium SUVs.
