All-new Ssangyong Tivoli SUV revealed ahead of Geneva debut

South Korean Ssangyong has had a fair share of moments when the future of the company is in jeopardy. Part of the Mahindra group since 2011, the Ssangyong has unveiled their all-new and first B-segment SUV called Tivoli under the new ownership.

The Tivoli is a global vehicle with sales expected to be up to 100,000 units per year (Korea: 40,000 Overseas: 60,000).

Visually it is quite attractive with a sharper styling compared to company’s previous offerings, going against the likes of Nissan Juke, Chevy Trax, Mazda CX-3, Honda HR-V and Jeep Renegade.

Overall width of 1,795mm is widest in the class, while 423 litres of storage space is also largest in the class, carrying up to three golf bags.

For even more room, there are full-flat folding second-row seats.

Interior also boasts a D-cut steering wheel, semi-bucket seats, ventilated driver’s seat, heated steering wheel, heated second row seats, six-colour cluster with 3.5 inch display that shows various information.

Other goodies include multi-functional ESP, Tire Pressure Monitoring System, LED daytime running lamps, seven-inch display which is connected to the rear camera, fully-automatic dual air-conditioning system and obstacle detection system with six sensors.

Engine choices include 1.6-litre four-cylinder petrol and diesel units linked to either a manual or automatic six-speed transmission, driving either the front wheels or all four, depending on the configuration.

It is well equipped and not a bad looking car like pretty much everything else the company has rolled out before. This could really be SsangYong’s first popular vehicle among European buyers if the quality is also drastically improved.

The SsangYong Tivoli will make its European debut at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show in March.
