As auto enthusiasts await to catch a glimpse of the next-gen Ssangyong Rexton, sketches for the upcoming vehicle have emerged ahead of its debut at the Seoul Motor Show. Based on the SsangYong’s LIV-2 Concept, the vehicle will be introduced under the Mahindra badging in the country and is expected to be positioned above the XUV500. The fresh sketches reveal how the vehicle codenamed Y400, might turn out to be in flesh. Post launch, the vehicle is expected to compete against the likes of Toyota Fortuner and Ford Endeavour.

At the time of its India debut, the SUV will be powered by a 2.2-litre turbo-charged diesel that generates 182bhp of power and 420Nm of torque. The vehicle is expected to come mated to either a six-speed manual or a seven-speed automatic. Sometime at a later date, the vehicle might also be offered with a 2.0-litre that generates 221bhp of power. As for the interior, the new model is expected to get a 9.2-inch infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. For the rear seat passengers, the vehicle offers a 10.1-inch display in the back of the front head rests. Moreover, it also comes with individual captain seats that offer a massage function. The vehicle will sport premium upholstery and mood lighting function.

As for the design, the vehicle will get sharp headlamps with prominent LED DRLs on the large bumper. The vehicle will also get a prominent LED daytime running lamp on the bumper along with few bits of chrome. As seen in sketches, the vehicle might get flared wheel arches that gives it a muscular stance along with rugged-looking alloy wheels. The pricing aspect for the upcoming vehicle is not known for now, however we believe it might be priced between Rs 20 – 25 lakh (Ex-showroom).
