Price is right for sub - £13k SsangYong Tivoli
SsangYong has revealed that its Tivoli compact crossover will start at a supermini-rivalling price of £12,950.
We drive the newcomer on UK roads for the first time on Page 34, and a petrol-powered SE kicks off the range. This offers cloth upholstery, 16-inch alloys, cruise control, adjustable steering (with Comfort, Normal and Sport settings), Bluetooth and seven airbags as standard. There’s a 126bhp 1.6-litre petrol and a 1.6 diesel with 113bhp available (£1,250 more than the petrol) and a six-speed manual box.
EX spec, from £14,600, adds grey or beige leather seats, dual-zone climate control, a seven-inch colour touchscreen with a rear-view camera, heated front seats and a load cover. It also gets 18-inch alloys and foglamps, and has a six-speed auto box. This carries a £1,000 premium, while four-wheel drive (only with the 1.6-litre diesel manual) is an additional £1,250.
Range-topping ELX models, however, can be had with a choice of two or four-wheel drive, petrol or diesel and manual or auto boxes. They get 18-inch diamond-cut alloys, keyless go, front and rear parking sensors, privacy glass, a rear spoiler, automatic headlights and sat-nav.
Prices start at £16,000 and rise to £19,500.
In a bid to tempt Fiat 500 and DS 3 customers, SsangYong is also offering a ‘My Tivoli’ personalisation programme.
Options include a Styling Pack for £400, which adds a contrasting roof combination, and a red leather interior package for £350.
All cars carry a five-year, unlimited mileage warranty, with first deliveries expected in June. Diesels arrive in August.
