The Rexton has always been a pretty dependable tow car and the new one is no different, with it capable of a five-tonne towing capacity thanks to its torque output of 310lb ft and power of 178bhp.

Prices for the new Rexton start at £27,500 on the road and a big draw for buyers of the new Rexton will be its competitive five-year warranty, which will cover you during that period for unlimited mileage.
