Dynamically too, the Rexton's biggest strength is its ride.
It rides pretty well, thanks to its soft ride setup and that should be a selling point for those looking for comfort on bad roads or general urban driving.
The problem is there is just too much body-roll and a fair amount of pitching and diving.
The 16-inch Hankook tyres do a good job of providing grip but the steering is too light and a bit slow to react.
Don't go looking for feel with this one, you are probably better off with the Santa Fe, Koleos or even the Fortuner.
Like with every other launch from Mahindra, the trump card of this vehicle is its price and the robust underpinnings that go with it. Ignore the average dynamics and slightly poor plastics and the Rexton makes for a sensible purchase decision.
Mahindra has an installed capacity of 5,000 units per annum and looks to sell about 500 units a month.
Will that be easy? We'll have to wait and see.
