Ssangyong Throws Tivoli into the Small SUV Arena

This is our first chance to see up closely Ssangyong’s latest creation, a small SUV that wants to rival cars like the Nissan Juke, the Renault Kaptur and the Peugeot 2008.

The Tivoli is the first new Ssangyong to be launched after the merger of the Korean company with Mahindra & Mahindra in 2011, and is the product of a €280 million investment. It’s an important car for Ssangyong then, which believes that the Tivoli can help them increase their annual production by 100,000 units.

Based on a brand new platform, the Tivoli will be available with two 1.6-litre engines, one petrol, one diesel. The petrol makes 124hp/6.000rpm and 157Nm-116lb.ft/4.600rpm and comes with a six-speed manual as standard. A six-speed automatic is offered as an option to both engines, with the diesel’s figures still to be published. Rumors have been saying that Ssangyong is preparing a new range of small, turbocharged engines for the near future.

The Tivoli will be available as a front-wheel drive at first, with the 4WD version to be available by the end of the year.
