The SsangYong Tivoli petrol was launched into the compact SUV sector in May this year, followed a few months later by an all-new 1.6 litre Euro 6 diesel engine available across the range. Now the company is adding 4x4, making it one of very few four-wheel drive cars available in this segment of the market.

“Tivoli is really helping to put SsangYong on the map,” says Paul Williams, CEO of SsangYong Motor UK. “We are delighted with the reception the car has received from our customers as well as the media, who recognise the real step-change that has taken place.

“It is being recognised for its style, safety and equipment, interior space and finish, but especially its value for money and industry leading warranty, and now with the launch of Tivoli 4x4 we have another opportunity to extend this appeal even further.” 

Diesel power

Powered by the newly developed e-XDi160 Euro 6 diesel engine which produces 115ps/3,400 - 4,000rpm max power with 300Nm/1,500 - 2,500rpm and delivers a smooth, progressive and powerful driving experience, it offers optimised performance for both urban and motorway driving with excellent NVH (noise, vibration & harshness) characteristics. 

The 1.6 litre diesel engine achieves a CO2 emission level of just 113g/km (2-wheel drive, manual transmission), and 123g/km with the four-wheel drive manual.

The fifth generation E-VGT turbocharger on the e-XDi160 diesel engine maximises performance especially in the mid-low speed range so it is fun and responsive to drive.  Two transmissions are offered, a 6-speed manual and Aisin 6-speed automatic.

In terms of economy, the Tivoli diesel 4x4 achieves up to 60.1mpg on the Combined Cycle with manual transmission, and 47.9mpg for the automatic.

Four wheel drive performance

SsangYong is Korea’s specialist 4x4 and SUV manufacturer, and the design and engineering on the Tivoli 4x4 draws on the company’s highly regarded 4-wheel drive technology and years of experience. 

Tivoli employs an intelligent and advanced all-wheel drive torque on demand system that senses the road surface and driving conditions, and distributes the power to the wheels that need it most.

Under normal driving conditions, 100 per cent of the engine’s torque is delivered to the front wheels so that the car runs with optimised fuel efficiency.  On icy or slippery roads or when driving on wet off-road conditions, power is distributed to both the front and rear wheels to ensure a safe, stable and dependable drive.  The technology operates to give a smooth and safe departure when driving away from a standstill on a steep slope, while a lock mode distributes power equally between the front and rear wheels at speeds below 25mph to optimise traction.

With a ground clearance of 167mm, an approach angle of 20.5 degrees, 28.0 degree departure angle and a ramp angle of 17 degrees, the new Tivoli is a highly capable off-roader.

In conjunction with the standard electronic stability program (ESP) with hydraulic brake assist and 4-channel anti-lock braking system (ABS), the four-wheel drive system provides the best possible grip and control whatever the conditions.  Hill start assist (HSA) and active roll-over protection (ARP) also feature.

The Tivoli 4x4 also features multi-link rear suspension for a comfortable drive on the road, and increased wheel articulation for optimum grip off-road.

The Tivoli is comprehensively equipped - see specification list attached, while for those who want further individualisation, the My Tivoli programme offers a wide number of further choices.

5 year limitless mileage warranty

All models in the SsangYong range are covered by a best-in-class 5 year limitless mileage warranty.  Designed to be totally transparent and give customers complete peace of mind, ‘limitless’ means just that: not a maximum mileage condition that some brands impose in their small print.  All the major mechanical components are covered including the engine and drivetrain, wheel bearings, suspension joints and bushes, steering joints, shock absorbers and even the audio system.  Wearable components such as clutch friction plates and brake pads which could have their life reduced by poor driving are covered for one year or 12,500 miles, and the battery and paintwork for three years.

Made in Korea

The SsangYong Tivoli is manufactured in South Korea by SsangYong Motor, which is 73 per cent owned by the Indian engineering conglomerate Mahindra & Mahindra, and imported into the UK by SsangYong Motor UK.  Established in 1954, SsangYong is Korea's oldest vehicle manufacturer and only 4x4 and SUV specialist producer.  There are currently some 60 SsangYong dealers covering England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales, with new locations being added to the network all the time.
