The contemporary SsangYong Tivoli arrived in petrol engine form earlier this summer and quickly began to make its mark in the compact SUV segment of the market.  Now SsangYong is expanding the choice available by launching an all-new 1.6 litre Euro 6 diesel engine across the range.

“Tivoli is the biggest thing to happen to SsangYong”, says Paul Williams, CEO of SsangYong Motor UK, “and we have been delighted with the reaction to the car from the media and all importantly from owners.

“Tivoli is being praised for its style, safety and equipment, interior space and finish, and with the introduction of diesel we can now offer greater power, increased economy and a 1.5 tonne towing capability, while also underlining the SsangYong proposition of value for money, backed by a warranty no one else can match.”

Diesel power

The newly developed e-XDi160 diesel engine produces 115ps/3,400 - 4,000rpm max power with 300Nm/1,500 - 2,500rpm, and delivers a smooth, progressive and powerful driving experience, while the e-XGi160 petrol engine delivers up to 128ps/6,000rpm max power with 160Nm/4,600 rpm max torque, and offers optimised performance for both urban and motorway driving with excellent NVH (noise, vibration & harshness) characteristics.  Both the diesel and petrol engines comply with the Euro 6 emission standard.

The 1.6 litre diesel engine achieves a CO² emission level of just 113g/km (2-wheel drive, manual transmission), and the 1.6 litre petrol engine with two wheel drive, manual transmission and Stop/go a level of 149g/km.

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, Tivoli diesel achieves up to 65.7mpg on the Combined Cycle with manual transmission, and 51.4mpg for the automatic.

The range

The Tivoli is comprehensively equipped - see specification list attached, and for simplicity the range comprises three main model options - SE, EX and ELX, while for those who want further individualisation, the My Tivoli programme offers a wide number of further choices.

5 year limitless mileage warranty

As with all models in the SsangYong range, the new Tivoli is 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 wheel bearings, suspension joints and bushes, steering joints, shock absorbers and even the audio system.  Wearable components such as clutch discs and brake friction materials which could have their life reduced by poor driving are covered for one year or 12,000 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 55 SsangYong dealers covering England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales, with new locations being added to the network all the time.
