We have a soft spot for Ssangyong here at TG Towers, not least because the South Korean manufacturer’s curiously styled and oddly named cars have been the willing butts of many disparaging jokes.
With the new Tivoli, though – a value Juke rival that doesn’t look half bad – Ssangyong appears to be getting good.
This has been recognised with a nomination for the World Car of the Year award, the winner of which is announced at next spring’s New York motor show.
The Merc C-Class is the current holder, while the Ssangyong is fighting illustrious company like the new Audi A4, Jag XE and Mazda MX-5. And the Subaru Levorg. Fancy its chances?
