New Ssangyong Tivoli: Specification, prices and release date announced

April 16, 2015

Finally, the South Korean brand Ssangyong have announced the specification, pricing and release date for its new small sports utility vehicle “Tivoli” which is going on sale in Summer 2015.

In our earlier post about the new Ssangyong Tivoli, we gave you some information about how the company is trying to create a new youthful image amongst younger drivers. In this post we have tried to provide pricing and specification details for the new Tivoli which will go on sale this Summer.

The Tivoli is the all-new sports utility vehicle from the Ssangyong brand. It sits on an all-new platform which has been developed since Ssangyong was taken over by Indian giant Mahindra. The Tivoli is a five seater vehicle which features a total boot capacity of 423 litres with the rear seats up and measures a total length of 4.2 metres offering enough head and legroom for the three rear passengers based on its dimensions.

At the time of launch, the Tivoli will be offered with a choice of two engines, a 1.6 litre petrol and a 1.6 litre diesel engine. The diesel engine will be available with both two and four wheel drive options whereas petrol buyers will only get the standard two wheel drive engine. Both style engines will be available in a choice of manual and automatic transmissions.
