The newly launched SsangYong Tivoli ELX compact SUV, launched in Korea earlier this year, has been nominated for World Car of The Year (WCOTY) 2016, the first ever nomination for the automakers.
Just 20 new cars have been nominated for the 2016 World Car of The Year title, which is independently recognised as the number one car awarded in the world.
Now in its eleventh year, World Car of The Year (WCOTY) was established in 2005, and the 2016 winner will be announced in New York late in March next year. "This is a huge accolade for the Tivoli and SsangYong," commented Paul Williams, CEO of SsangYong Motor UK, "Suffice to say, we are absolutely delighted!"
The petrol powered Tivoli was launched in Korea earlier this year, and internationally in May, Tivoli diesel is being launched internationally at the Frankfurt Motor Show this week.
