The Rexton line-up sees an entry-level seven-seat 'EX' variant at around £27,500, but most will want to find another £4,500 for the plusher 'ELX' model, which comes with either five or seven seats. Both variants come with the option of 7-speed auto transmission for an extra £2,000. You have to have the auto 'box on the top five-seat-only 'Ultimate' version, which costs around £37,500. As expected equipment levels are generous. Avoid entry-level trim and you get power-adjustable front seats, dual-zone fully automated air-conditioning with fine dust filters, plus a USB connector and 220V/115V inverter is available for rear seat passengers. On the top 'Ultimate' version, the front seats are cooled and have memory settings.
As for safety, the car features up to nine airbags including a knee-airbag for the driver and most models get side-airbags in the rear. Electronic safety aids include forward collision warning, autonomous emergency braking, lane departure warning, high beam assistance and traffic sign recognition. The top of the range Rexton 'Ultimate' also gets cameras front and rear as well as on the door mirrors. This suite of electronic safety aids also includes 3D around-car monitoring and blind spot detection as well as a 'rear cross traffic alert' system to provide a clear view of the area surrounding the car, increasing safety and driver convenience during low-speed driving and parking.
