Facelifted SsangYong Tivoli Getting Mild Visual Updates, Better Tech

SsangYong are currently testing a facelifted version of their Tivoli SUV, with recently spotted prototypes wearing camouflage at the front and at the rear, plus a little something for the interior as well.

Once the updated crossover is unveiled, sometime next year, we expect changes to include a mildly revised front end with new headlights, a new grille and restyled bumpers, but also new taillight graphics at the rear and some fresh interior trim and tech.

Are any changes visible?

They certainly are. For example, we can see that compared to the current Tivoli, this camouflaged prototype is wearing slightly different headlights and some type of insert for the radiator grille. The spoiler seems to be shaped differently as well, while at the back, we can see slightly sharper graphics for the taillights.

Since the South Korean automaker also decided to cover up the dashboard, we assume that further aesthetic changes will take place inside, where we could maybe see new trim pieces, improved materials and maybe even some upgraded tech.

Right now, the Tivoli is available with multiple active safety systems such as Forward Collision Warning, Autonomous Emergency Braking, Lane Departure Warning, Lane Keeping Assist, High Beam Assistance and Traffic Sign Recognition. You can also get keyless start, a reversing camera, cruise control, a 7-inch touchscreen, sat-nav and dual-zone air conditioning.

As for its 128 PS (126 HP) 1.6-liter Euro 6 petrol unit, rumor has it that it could be replaced by a smaller 1.2-liter turbocharged engine, joining the one available diesel option.

    Let’s hope its a good facelift. Ssangyong aren’t well known for their prettiness.

    The Tivoli is a very underrated car and has kept looking fresh since its launch, they shouldn’t mess with it too much.
