From the moment we met Ssangyong Rexton we loved the package he offered.

At a significantly lower price than the Toyota Land Cruiser and without a large gap in off-road capabilities - it offered an attractive deal for travelers who need a 7-seater car.

And after the attraction control was updated which less impressed him in its performance, it definitely became recommended.

But in the meantime Ssangyong had bigger problems on its head than our criticism of the traction control operation, as the company suffered a series of shocks in the corona year that brought it to the brink of bankruptcy.

Fortunately, with a happy timing for the Harkstone, industry giant Mahindra announced yesterday that it believes in a manufacturer, will supply it with motors and will even invest in its electric vehicle program.

The most notable component in the outward change that the Harkstone has undergone is - of course, its bow, which has been given a barred grille in the style of "Audi meets Hyundai".

On its sides are two new LED lighting units as well as a refresh of the rear.

The cabin has other changes, including a redesigned steering wheel (but not only design, it has also become electric at the high level of finish), and the new gear lever also heralds a technical change - beyond the new 8-speed Hyundai gearbox.

The multimedia system has an 8-inch screen and it also supports Android and Apple and includes built-in Wizz navigation.

At the two trim levels, the basic EX and the well-equipped "Premium", the equipment list remains similar to the previous one.

The more major changes are in the areas of advanced safety systems.

When the EX model will continue to offer automatic braking (including pedestrian detection, not two-wheelers), lane departure warning, road sign detection and more.

In order to get the full safety systems one has to go up to the higher level of equipment.

There, with the car equipment in the new electric steering wheel there is also lane departure correction and lane center maintenance, adaptive cruise control, "dead zone" vehicle warning including lane departure prevention and rear door opening warning when vehicle approaches, automatic reverse braking and more.

In addition to these, and with excellent timing for the local caravan trend, a new stability control has been added to the Rexton for driving with a trailer.

The dramatic innovation no less than the grille happens under the hood, from the same 2.2-liter turbo diesel engine are now produced 202 hp and 45 kg, this is an improvement of 21 hp and 2.2 kg compared to the engine it replaced.

Acceleration to 100 has been shortened to 10.7 seconds (11.9 previously) and the top speed is 184 km / h (185 previously).

As mentioned, the Harkstone is equipped with an eight-speed automatic transmission made by Hyundai. The box has electronic control (SBW) as in several models The new Hyundai like the Sonata and others, which is possible beyond the same "joystick" handle in

the cabin.The dual propulsion system remains unchanged and as is customary among its contemporaries is rear, with electronic combination for dual propulsion, power transmission, automatic rear differential lock and more.
