Mahindra Rexton launched in Chennai

After a huge success of Mahindra XUV 500, Mahindra and Mahindra pulled-out its big gun and introduced the Mahindra Rexton SUV in Delhi and Mumbai in October. Now the company launched the car in Chennai with great pomp and show with a price tag of Rs. 18.08 lakh. This premium SUV is basically an improved and reworked Mercedes M Class first generation, which was brought in the 90’s. As of now, Mahindra Ssangyong Rexton has been rolled out in two engine tunes.

The Rexton RX5 variant has the 2.7 litre of five cylinder diesel mill that produces 162BHP of peak power, while the RX7 Variant of Rexton has the same engine, but it is tweaked to churn out 184BHP of peak power. On one hand, RX5 has five-speed manual gearbox coupled with the engine, while on the other hand, the RX7 variant has automatic transmission along with all wheel drive system.

Besides being launched in Mumbai, Delhi and Chennai, this lavish SUV has also launched in Bengaluru, Ludhiana, Chandigarh, Hyderabad, and Pune. M&M is busy settling the Ssangyong brand in India. The company is already panning for another Ssangyong vehicle. Apparently, Mahindra will bring in Ssangyong Korando in the Indian car market by 2013. However, not much has been confirmed on this, but if the overall response for Rexton turns out to be impressive, then Korando might be rolled out very soon.
