The all-new SsangYong Tivoli is a crucial new car that will take the Korean brand into a popular market segment.
The Tivoli sits on the first new platform developed since SsangYong’s takeover by Mahindra.
Designed as a rival to the Nissan Juke, the new Tivoli seats five and is available with a choice of 16- or 18- inch alloy wheels.
The model is available initially as a 126bhp 1.6-litre normally aspirated petrol unit, with a 1.6-litre 113bhp diesel engine to follow in July. Both will be mated to a six-speed manual gearbox as standard, but a six-speed automatic will be available. Four-wheel-drive variants will be available from July also.
Connectivity will include a USB port and HDMI that enables smartphone users to play their video content on the seven-inch colour touchscreen.
Other features available include rain-sensing wipers, a heated steering wheel, heated seats, front and rear parking sensors, a rear-view camera, the ‘Smart Steer’ system, cruise control, and automatic headlights.
SsangYong includes a five-year/100,000km warranty. Although specifications and pricing are yet to be revealed, the model is set to go on sale in May.
