Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd have just announced that the company will roll the first model under its Korean subsidiary brand, the all-new 2013 Ssangyong Rexton SUV in the Indian market on October 17. The national launch is slated to get underway in Mumbai, followed by launches in the cities of New Delhi and Bangalore.
Mahindra & Mahindra acquired the Korean company back in 2011 and the Rexton SUV is the first product from Ssangyong in India and will be manufactured at Mahindra's company plant in Chakan near Pune.
The Indian automaker had first showcased the Rexton II model at this year's Auto Expo in New Delhi. However, OnCars.in got hold of the exclusive spy shots of the Rexton W - that is an updated version of the Rexton II - being tested on Indian soil - which, naturally confirmed our speculations that Mahindra will indeed bring in the newer Rexton W instead of the Rexton II model.
