The SsangYong Rexton Sports pickup is the Q200 successor, as per the recently published spy images snapped by our fervent insiders. The SsangYong Rexton Sports showed up in entirely undisguised body framework.
Besides, the new reports which arrived in our newsrooms last week suggest the vehicle is slated to hit the dealerships in the South Korean arcade on the 9th of January this year.
SsangYong Rexton Sports pickup – Exterior and Interior Styling
SsangYong avails the SsangYong Rexton Sports in two body configurations. The first setup highlights a 196.85-inch-long body while the other one comes with a 212.60-inch-long body. The vehicle with a 212.60-inch-long framework is set to comprise a 15.75-inch longer load box than the previous pickup. The exterior styling of the inbound SsangYong Rexton Sports pickup is slightly toned down.
At the front fascia, we noticed the upper grille includes a single chrome slat with the upper quota featuring a body-color painting. On the contrary, the SsangYong Rexton pickup of the 2017 model year was painted in black color. The latest Rexton Sports pickup conveys round halogen fog lamps, instead of having the typical LED fog lamps.
Moreover, the fog lamp casings appear to be bigger in comparison to what we can see on the incumbent model. At the front, this new pickup is devoid of a high-gloss black skid plate in addition to the chrome bumper garnish. Its lower bumper is a little different from the ongoing Rexton pickup as well.
When it comes to the sides, it is evident that the dual-cab pickup boasts its sports bar and five-double spoke alloy wheels. The general design is completely different at the rear fascia. The most prominent features here include such things as horizontal light reflectors on the car’s bumper and wraparound vertical tail lights. Also, we can spot the conspicuous Sports’ branding located just beneath the Rexton’ inscription on the tailgate.
The interior region of the reformed SsangYong Rexton Sports pickup seems to copy a lot of styling cues from the G4 Rexton SUV. However, its cabin comprises dozens of elements that make it appear a little less luxurious. These include things like brown upholstery, high-gloss black trim on the steering wheel, and the availability of wood grain accents in the cabin.
Overall, the SsangYong Rexton Sports pickup has dozens of expedient design cues which set it apart from the rivals. For instance, it comes with leather dashboard covering, Dual-zone automated climate control system, HID headlamps, and Supervision instrument cluster.
Furthermore, it gets equipped with valuable features like LED daytime running lights, Nappa leather seats, 20-inch alloy wheels, and power adjustment function for the chauffer’s seat. These are key highlights of the next SsangYong Rexton Sports pickup.

The SsangYong pickup will have under the hood LET 2.2L e-XDi220 diesel powertrain. This unit churns out approximately 187 PS and 419.72 Nm of torque (equivalent to 42.8 kg.m).
This engine comes with a six-speed manual gearbox as standard. However, there is a seven-speed automatic gearbox alternative that comes as an option. We also expect a part-time 4-Tronic four-wheel-drive system with a differential lock to become available in this pickup truck.
