There are three variants available; the SE, EX, and ELX – the SE is available with a choice of a 1.6-litre Euro6 petrol or diesel engines (from August) with manual transmission. Finished in a smart grey cloth trim, it includes 16” alloy wheels, cruise control, normal, comfort and sport steering modes, and RDS/Bluetooth radio.
EX adds the option of automatic transmission on the petrol powered car, (diesel automatic and diesel 4x4 manual are available through the My Tivoli personalisation programme), grey or beige leather upholstery, 18” alloy Spiral wheels, dual zone climate control, 7” touch screen smart audio system with rear view camera, heated front seats, front fog lights, and a luggage load cover.
The top of the range ELX is available with the full choice of petrol, diesel, manual and automatic transmission, front wheel drive or 4x4, and features Diamond cut alloy wheels, keyless starting, front and rear parking sensors, privacy glass, rear spoiler, automatic headlamps, rain sensing wipers, full TomTom navigation system with 7” touch screen, and rear view camera.
Chief executive of SsangYong Motor UK Paul Williams said: “This is a car that will really put SsangYong on the map and change brand perceptions. By any criteria but especially style, interior finish and value for money, Tivoli stands close scrutiny.
“The verdict from those who have already seen and driven the car is that we’re on to a winner. But ultimately it’s the customer who wins; this is a modern, safe, well-built and comprehensively equipped car, and with a price and warranty no one else can match. Anyone considering a small SUV will have to put it on their list.”
The range is available in a choice of six colours; Flaming red, Grand white, metallic Dandy blue, Space black, Silent silver, Techno grey.
The ‘My Tivoli’ personalisation programme includes a styling pack which gives a choice of fine two-tone colour roof combinations, the Red leather pack, and two further colours in metallic Jazz brown and Icecap blue, as well as further engine and drivetrain options.
