Facelifted SsangYong Tivoli Bows In Korea With New Turbo Engine

SsangYong has quietly introduced the facelifted Tivoli in South Korea.

Billed as the “Very New Tivoli,” the updated crossover has been equipped with a new front fascia that features a revised grille and restyled headlights. Bigger changes occur further below as the facelifted model adopts a more prominent air intake and new triple-stacked fog lights.

The styling changes are less noticeable out back, but the model has a subtlety revised bumper and new taillight graphics. The liftgate has also been redesigned as it now has a more pronounced hump and a wide recess above the rear license plate.

Moving into the cabin, drivers will find a new 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster and a more modern 9-inch infotainment system. Designers also installed a new dashboard, a redesigned center stack and higher quality switchgear. We can also see new air vents and a familiar steering wheel.

SsangYong didn’t say much about the model, but it will be offered with a new turbocharged 1.5-liter engine that promises to provide “powerful performance.” The company didn’t mention specifications, but the Tivoli will also be offered with a diesel engine.

The facelifted Tivoli will be launched next month and South Korean pricing starts at 16,680,000 won ($13,981 / £10,983 / €12,519). The company is currently accepting pre-orders and everyone who makes a 100,000 won ($84 / £66 / €75) deposit before June 4th will receive will receive a special Tivoli t-shirt.
