Safety

The new Rexton is one of the strongest cars in its class. It’s built on a high-strength body-on-frame construction and features a comprehensive suite of the latest electronic safety aids. For further reassurance, it’s also available with up to 9 airbags*.

*Available on ELX diesel and Ultimate models.


HIGH STRENGTH STEEL CONSTRUCTION

The new Rexton is built on extremely strong foundations.

It’s body-on-frame construction is built using 1.5Gpa ultra-strength steel - a world first.

In fact, 81.7% of the steel plate in the car’s body uses high-strength, high-density, high-tensile steel.

This provides superb rigidity and protection in a collision to maximise the safe space within the cabin.

Electronic Brake-Force Distribution Anti-Lock Brake System

EBD-ABS distributes brake force appropriately to the front and rear wheels according to the vehicle’s load of passengers and/or cargo.

Electronic Stability Programme

ESP constantly monitors road conditions and vehicle status and automatically adjusts engine output and braking whenever the driver is about to lose control. It integrates the ABS, active rollover protection, anti-slip regulation and brake-force assist.

Brake Assist System

BAS automatically activates full braking in an emergency to reduce the vehicle’s braking distance to help avoid an accident.

9 AIRBAGS

For maximum passenger protection on impact, the car is equipped with up to 9 airbags* - the most in its class.

These include a knee-airbag for the driver and rear passenger side and curtain airbags - safety features normally only found in prestige vehicles.

*Available on ELX diesel and Ultimate models.

ISOFIX

The new Rexton also takes the safety of children seriously.

The car is equipped with ISOFIX child-seat mountings to the rear outer seats to ensure that child seats are attached firmly and rigidly.

Tyre Pressure Monitoring System

Tyre pressure is something the driver will never be unsure about in the new Rexton. A tyre pressure monitoring is built into the car’s electronics and displayed via the trip computer.

Each tyre is continually checked for pressure and the driver is immediately warned of unsafe readings.
