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.
