Fuel economy

A more stringent standard for fuel economy (WLTP) was introduced from September 2017, and this model was not required to undergo that test. Its fuel economy measured under the previous test system was 18 - 32 mpg. However these figures are less likely to be achievable in real world driving and so should never be compared to another car's mpg which was measured under the newer, more realistic WLTP system.

Ssangyong Rexton running costs are fairly high. The early 290 diesel was thirsty and needed a service every six months or 6000 miles. The later 270 is better and (like the old petrol model) needs a service every 10,000 miles. Depreciation is good for a £20,000 car, but below the class average for a 4x4.

The Ssangyong Rexton emissions statistics aren’t particularly impressive. It scores fairly badly on the eco front, even compared to other large 4x4s. The manual gearbox model emits 229g/km of CO2 and returns 32.8mpg.

SsangYong Rexton reliability could represent something of a mixed bag. The firm itself has a reputation for mechanical durability and the Rexton uses a gearbox borrowed from Mercedes-Benz. However, electrical problems have been reported in the past.
